You're running on a laptop. Laptops have never been good for high-end gaming.

Your laptop also doesn't have anything in the way of an actual graphics processor, it's running on an Intel chipset. No, the game will not run well. Lower the resolution and play on the lowest settings, it's the only thing you can do.

There's no way you can run any recently released games on that. If you want a desktop PC that can max it out you can put together parts on Newegg for around 400 bucks...

HI, I too have a problem with running a Far Cry 2 game

I have

QuadCore Intel Core 2 Quad, 2000 MHz (6 x 333)
4096 MB RAM (2x 2 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM )
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT (512 MB direct x 10)
500 HDD

Still the game runs too slow ... I know there is a solution it's just I don't know about it.. :) there a fix or something

You can't run it with a 9800 GT? That's a much better card than I have.

I get between 24 - 35 fps, on very high/4xAA , with a PNY9600gso

Do you have ambient occlusion on, in the nvidia control panel?? That will kill your framerates. I keep it off.

The core power comes from the Mainboard &CPU. A souped up graphics card is only necessary when you havea weak fondation.

FSAA & antistrophing alwaysdemands power since those features are soley handled by the GPU. They're just resource hogs. That's all you're really getting when by high end GPUs. More power for more samplesvia 2D & 3D filtering. It's fine... if you have a super computer.

Ican't provewhy these games have a choice of low to high settings. They use the same amount of system resources either way. They're onlyprogrammed to run one way... maximum resource consumption. I'm staring to believe only exist to give hustle gamers into buying new hardware, but you're not engineer so ofcourse you don't have one.

Some how they always manage to port these games to consoles that use Geforce 3 or equivilanttechnology and oddly enough it runs exceptional with miminal downgrades. Yet this can't be achieved on a PC. I'm being sarcastic.
