Far Cry
If you've been on top of the gaming scene, you probably know that Far Cry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC to date.  Far Cry gives us a taste of what is to come in next-generation 3D Gaming on the PC.  We benchmarked the graphics cards in this review with a custom recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint at various resolutions without AA or Aniso Filtering enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled together.

FarCry proved to be a challenge for the PCX 5750.  This time around, the ASUS card went back to doubling the score as we saw earlier on.  Nonethless, neither card was up to the task at 1,600 x 1,200, both in dire need of reducing in-game image quality to maintain playable frame rates at higher resolutions.
