    Is anyone able to run Doom 3 and or Farcry with maximum graphic's and antialiasing etc without any problems.

    if so, what are the specs of the machine your running it on.

    I am thinking of upgrading my machine and i want to know what to upgrade to.

    I can run both games at 1600 x 1200, highest quality settings and maxed AA / FSAA, and all on a P4 3.0 and 9800 Pro.

    It makes for a very pretty slide show! :D

    No machine available can run Doom3 properly with max settings as it requires a 512MB graphics card.

    I have a P4 3g with 1gig ram and Far Cry runs perfectly on high setting at 1280 res.
    No noticeable slowdown.

    I have a xp2800 with 1gig of memory and a 128mb 9800 pro and far cry runs perfectly on high setting @1280x1024, but doom3 i have to tone the res down to 1024x768 on high setting or else it occasionally starts to stutter.

    cheers headfull

    I've not tried running at ultra settings yet - just High @ 1600x1200 - but it plays very smoothly - will give it ago on ultra this evening.
    I'm using a x800xt equiv ( x800pro modded to xt pe ) - should be even smoother on a 6800ultra.

    ...... and thats on a 2500+ barton unclocked as my vapochill cooler is out of action till i get a new psu.

    X800 pro isnt anywhere near as good as the XT. Not because of the clock but because it only has half (8 instead if 16) pixel pipes.
    Not so for the Nvidia cards (GT vs Ultra) I clocked my GT to Ultra speeds so it is exactly the same, spec wise.

    Incorrect - the pro comes as standard with 12 pipelines not 8

    If you noticed I said my card was 'modded' to be a x800xtPE - that does not mean I just upped the clock rate - its a full mod.
    16 pipelines - xtPE bios and clock speeds for cpu and ram

    And I think you'll find x800 pro vivo's are virtually identical to the xt pe's - they just have the extra pipelines soft mod disabled ........... why do you think I bought one.
