    Hi,

    I believe Far Cry to be the ultimate gaming experience for the graphics interested person. Since I'm getting myself a laptop, I would like to know whether this is enjoyable on a powerful laptop, or if it needs a Radeon 9800XT and stuff to run nicely.

    Have you played Far Cry on your laptop? Was it enjoyable? If yes, with what hardware?

    My machine will have a 3,2 GHz P4-M, 1024 MB DDR and a GeForce Go FX5700.

    I was just playing it last nite, and was having a great time. I generally run it on medium quality settings at 1024X768, when on batteries. If im plugged in and feeling bad I will oc my gpu a bit and go to high settings. The game still looks great even on medium settings but then I'm pretty easy to please.
    I have a ASUS M6Ne, 1.7 PM (1Mb), 512Mb DDR333 RAM, 64Mb ATI 9700.

    Sweet!
    I don't know how the GeForce FX5700 stands in the competition compared to the Radeon 9700, though. But I ran a 3D Mark 2001 benchmark on the machine down at the store, and it scored 11500 points. That's not bad at all.

    hi there, i play far cry on my laptop at the low settings and personally i think it looks awesome!!! I am pretty picky about graphics and even at the low settings I am happy; id love to see it on a high end computer to see what the game CAN look like. IM running a zx5000 Mobile P4 2.8 512 ram, ati9200 64mb
