    It's called "Field of View" (FOV). I heard Far Cry 2 uses some lower number than default, so it's probably not a driver issue. Have you tried different resolution? Try whatever is suggested here:

    I don't think it's a FOV matter. To be honest i can't notice some big difference, except the one caused from the different screenshot angles. That's what i see from the two screenshot's.

    As for the FOV fix of Farcry2, i think we don't need it anymore. With the 1.02 patch, a widescreen option has been added by ubisoft. This is the singleplayer part from the release log of the patch :

    Low settings? Surely your 9800GT can do High at your resolution?

    No crashes here, however I noticed that my framerates in singleplayer dropped to around 40. Before it was 60 or more (1920x1200 with all eye-candies enabled). :cry:

    Don't worry I rolled back to the 186.08 beta drivers too. They are the ones that gave me the best framerates in crysis and other stuff. They are also the ones that gave me the best MINIMUM framerates between 186,18 and 190.15.

    Did anyone have problems with Sacred 2, like the screen starts randomly to tremble and tear after playing for a while. Had that problem with 185.85 and 186.08 even if GTA4, Prototype and a few more games run just fine. Was curious if the problem was fixed with 186.18. Btw, i dont have this issue with 182.50.

    On low settings it varies between 30-60 fps depending on the scene.
    For eg. running around the hotel gives 60fps but with some heavier rendering outside on the streets gives me 30fps.

    It can do at high settings but fps are obviously lower and then I find it better to cap it at 30. Otherwise on high settings running in the hotel it gives me 45 fps.

    thats what i was getting in prototype, it`d go as low as 5fps, but no more than 25, rolled back and i don`t drop under 45fps now

    ye i saw it, it losses detail, its like the driver is cutting off lod detail,...

    i though i saw it with some drivers (in cod4, crysis, and few more i cant remember), more crappy lod but wasn't so aware of it, this just profs it i was right :nerd:

    i didnt see such lod issues yet with these whql, well i haven't played much only Prototype (ok here its a crappy lod by default), Fear combat, Ghostbusters, all 3 ran the same as with 186.08 seemed smooth and IQ looked the same..

    The only problem I have with these drivers is the same problem I had with every drivers before it,except for 185.85 drivers is that when I alt+tab out of cod4 or cod5 ,it sometimes takes 5 to 10 seconds to get back in the game.It doesnt do it imediately like the 185.85 drivers do.

    There cannot be a strait answer to your question. If you read the thread you would notice maybe 50X50 opinions about this set. Not everything depends on display driver. Everyone has their own hardware and system configurations. For some people it works like a charm for some not. I can see you also have pretty unique system. The only way you will find out if you try and install them yourself and do some benchmarking and game testing.

    These are really great imho! But 186.08 BETA has been and still is the best for me. But it's only a matter of 1-3 FPS really..

    I just had the looping sound "crash" in L4D for the first time ever, I was able to ALT+TAB out and back in and the game ran fine but I'm back to 182.50. This driver is just a little too buggy for me.
