    Gaming Rig Check-In...Far Cry

    Okay, well, inspired by the possible purchase of Far Cry, and since I haven't played any recent top-notch PC gaming titles, I figured it might be a nice idea to know what rigs you guys are using, and the performance you're seeing from these games.

    So it's role-call time:

    Processor: Athlon XP 2500+ (as is)
    Gfx Card: Radeon 9500 Pro
    Memory: 2x Corsair 3200 256Mb
    Cooling: CPU Volcano 9

    Anything else you might consider relevant:

    Game(s): Nothing for a while.

    Performance: See above!

    Your sig is empty, my friend.

    Also I have an XP2000+, 512MB DDR333 and a Radders 9000 - it plays Far Cry, well I say play, I meant it "attempts" Far Cry Demo. I'm sticking a 9600 Pro in next week though - that'll sort it out!
