Default Is this a good graphics card?

http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...9353&GroupID=0

Will it play F.E.A.R on high settings no problem?

And if it will how long will it last before I have to upgrade?

I'm not bothered about mind-blowing performance for future games as long as I can play them on mid-high setting.

Thanks

Hmm, depending on what resolution you play on, it will make a difference.

Let's put it this way. The X1800XT does 23 FPS on all high settings with shadows at 1600x1200.

The X800XL doesn't even come close.

I don't know exactly where the X800XL will stand, but it would probably be on the bottom.

F.E.A.R. is one demanding game, my friend.

New link.

Yeah i would totally recommend this card. It is a gigabyte board. I couldnt recommend anything better. I only buy gigabyte stuff. Wireless card, video card.

Radeon is also a good chipset too. nice smooth graphics.

The X800XL is a good card. It's basically a underclocked XT. Same core, same specs, slower speed.

If you like modding, go with the X800GTO2. You can easily unlock and overclock the card, and even volt mod it so you have more headspace when overclocking.
