It disables most of the functions in game and if you are familiar with system tweaking, the main proggies can be readily disabled. I generally try not to install it though. 5MBs of RAM is still 5MBs of RAM.
My last experience with an nVidia card (BFG 6800GT OC + Silencer) and 5 different drivers was consistent pauses in FarCry. Tried everything rumored to cure the problem and the only way I could get it resolved was too underclock the card. Even reseating the sink did nada and I know my way around goo. Seemed like an all too common problem in FarCry with nVidia cards that I had not heard anything about, until trying it out. None too happy about that. SM3.0 did seem to look better though, despite most reviews showing it not making much of a difference.
