    just to add this game is LOT faster in DX10 than in DX9... some ~20-25%
    for me very high settings in 1680*1050 gave me 52fps in dx10 and 44fps in dx9 no AA
    4x AA hit on 8800GT is big more than 20%

    What I would like to know is if PhysX works on GPU with GTX280 in FarCry2, and if it gives any benefits in terms of performance/visuals.
    A seperate test with a few NV cards would be sweet...

    So does Far Cry 2 support SLI rigs? Far Cry isnt on www.slizone.com's list of supported titles. Thanks!

    personally i've been using 8.9 official because i found them to have better IQ and a slightly lower performance than 8.10, suppose 8.9 should work with FarCry2 when i receive it tomorrow? or do i need the 8.10+hotfix? (id rather not). :3eyes:

    I love how the GTX performs in these benchies.. even at 1900x1200.. what a performance! Not necessarily shocked by that, but just happy about it :)

    Interested to see how it handles gameplay. Wasn't the hugest fan of Far Cry, but this game looks like they made some nice upgrades

    May I ask why is the nForce 680i used throughout every recent hardware review/benchmark?

    I don't see how. My 9800GTX and HD4850 setups both performed worse than this. I've got a faster processor too.

    The 9800 GX2 is known to have problems with Far Cry 2.

    Have a look here, regarding SLI being utilized and faster:

    Far Cry 2: R700 VS. GTX260 SLI continued, hotfix VS. Geforce 180.42
    http://en.hardspell.com/doc/showcont.asp?news_id=4277

    1 x GTX260: 34 - 44 fps
    2 x GTX260: 50 - 71 fps
