I took advantage of Steam’s half price promos and purchased Far Cry 2 for $15. I haven’t played enough of the game to see if its worth it, but I realized my frame rate is too low. You see, I have a 24 inch widescreen and it’s a total bitch to run games at 1920 x 1200 resolution. Even an older game like Call of Duty 4 is a bit clunky at times. I don’t think I even had my 8800GT for a year and I feel I need to upgrade again. And while I’m at it, I probably need to upgrade my processor. I currently have a Athlon 64 2x 5000+. I could either play it safe and upgrade to 6000+ or risk blowing up my system with a 6400+.
All the sudden, $15 doesn’t seem like a great deal anymore.
