    WTF do you stay near Camelon??, if not stfu, loadsa ppl visit the wheel:nutkick:

    I live not half a mile away from the wheel and have been there loads of times with different kids groups, learning them about the wheel. It is a totally unique peice of engineering.

    So you've never been there. Figures. loads of ppl live on the canal, and even more are jumping on the bandwagon since this. my local is 2 mins away, the "Canal Inn" and the summer is awsome, brings loadsa buisiness to a quiet town.

    I have been there I drive past it once a week when doing my lesson, I love the roundabout near it. I've been on it and while its unique its a waste of money, the canal system died with the invention of trains.

    :shadedshu and what has that got to do with history? the canal system: yes out dated, is a large piece of more Glasgow/ Edinburgh history than Camelon, We served as a stoppping place for all!

    The wheel while expensive, is a 1 off tech wonder! and many a boater are grateful

    might not be your cuppa(not mine either) but it is useful

    I'd just prefer if they'd spent the money on the schools since denny high school really needed it back then.

    Crysis 10?
    You mean Crysis?

    If so, looking at your specs, yea sure you should be able to play it at 1280x1024, everything on high settings, and get very good performance. You always download the demo

    Have fun! :rockout::rockout:

    Crysis is not a demanding game, trust me. The game is very easy on the CPU and video card. Any game " could " be demanding if you set the graphics and resolution to high, but crysis nah, the game is not demanding at all.

    I couldn't even max Crysis on a Phenom II 940 and GTX 280. I was at 1920x1080 tho.
    One of the most badly optimized games I have ever played.

    I'd have to say it is a demanding game.

    Same here.
    Although the PII seems to like Physics. Got a 9-15FPS boost by installing the Ageia Physics drivers... idk how or why but I did.
    Anywho.... will edit in a nice screenie soon. ;-)

    Some Crysis Benchmarks:

    Catalyst 9.1/2400HD PCI, 1280x1024, Physics High settings, Shader Medium, Post Processing Medium, Volumetric effects low/medium(can put on medium , but had it on low), Texture on Medium, everything else on low

    This game runs smooth, no stutter, no pausing, no lag, just amazing. :)
    Pretty good IMO.

    I am sure i will get more if i OC my card from 519/396 to 600/450, or when i buy my EVGA 8400gs the performance should increase big time.
    Btw, the performance increase in crysis as well as my other games, went up because i finally fix my IRQ's, and with the help of the 9.1 drivers.
