I think I'm going to buy it. Although, a little hesitant. Any other suggestions or comments on the 7800GS?

its fine its the best one you can get the XT PE its pretty close to it but i think is more expensive so the 7800GS would be good

My goal for owning this video card is to play FEAR on high settings. Do you think it can achieve this?

My opinion is that Nvidea makes great drivers. To fully utilize their hardware. Unlike Ati. So, I really dont beleive that a card by them would be buggy. Unless, however, if they rushed it to the market to beat Ati in some sort of race.

I say spend some money for a PCI-E compatible motherboard (the GS is AGP only right? I don't know), and then save the rest and some more for a newer graphics card since the 7800 series is probobly going to be replaced in the near, near future.
