'Far Cry' Graphics Help

Yesterday I bought Far Cry for the PC. I'm having some issues.

First off, I'll list my basic PC specs so maybe someone can detect an issue right away.

- Vista 32-bit
- Asus P5K-SE/EPU 775mb motherboard
- Asus NVidia 9600GSO
- 4.00GBs of RAM
- Intel Core Dual Processor 6420 2.13GHz

1. On HIGH settings I cannot see any graphics.





^ That's all I can see when I get close enough to a wall (this is the first level of course).

-------------

2. On LOW settings I cannot see everything outside.







-------------

So I'm wondering: is this a technical software issue or a hardware issue?

Thanks

Even though it's a cut down 9600, it is still a 9000 series GPU and that should be able to run the game.
What sort of Power supply do you have? Has it got enough power on the 12v rail for this card?
What nVidia driver version are you using?
