Okay, I see it is a radeon card, but WHO is the manufacturer that you bought this card from? Late me give you some expamples. eVGA, XFX, BFG....etc. I need to know exactly what video brand you have, so I (or others who have better intel than I do with ATI) can look into that information.

I could say I have a nvidia 6800 video card, but actually I have a "BFG 6800 OC" video card. Which is the brand name. That is the info I need.

From the limited knowledge I have about 3DC, it appears that the game itself has to suppor this feature.

Though, there seems to be beta optimized drivers that enable 3dc on everything. Install at your own risk:

Far cry has 3dc, but you have to install the latest patch to get it.
