I have a

Amd 64 4000
2GB of RAM
6600GT 128mb pci-e
ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard

and it struggles with F.E.A.R

The processor and RAM are top class but the graphics card is whats holding me back. If i bought a 7800gtx i could max the game out but at the minute im not prepared to do that. I can run F.E.A.R with everything on medium but when i turn it to high it gets jumpy.


My advice buy as good a card as you can afford. Im currently bidding on a second 6600gt on ebay and if i win i will run them in SLI

As kiddgame2000 has said it's your graphics card holding you back (modern games actually make little use on the cpu, most/all of the work is done on the gpu).

Fear is one of the most graphically intense games around at the moment, even with a 7800gt (oc'ed) I cannot play with all the bells & whistles enabled.
