  1. Yeah, I’ve seen the crap before with Far Cry 3. Canyourunit.com says I can’t run it on max because I don’t meet the Hi-Performance Specs, but when I played it, everything was on max in full HD (albeit, with some AA turned down) running at over 30 FPS. This thing with Hi-Performance Specs is like: “Hmmm… what high end video card was released this month? Right! We’ll say you can run this game at max settings ONLY if you buy that one”. Same with processors and all other.
