Re: Got a 7600gs for Christmas :) :) :)
Yeah, that'll most likely be the video card. FEAR is very shader heavy, but also, very CPU heavy...
I find it runs jerky sometimes on my 3500+ AMD 64 and 6800GS video card at high settings.
I run it at 1280x1024 with 2x Antialising (The jaggies on that game do not look very nice),
and Smooth Shadows off.
Everything else on High.
I get around 60 at the highest, which can drop to 25-15 on really intensive parts, and an average of around 35.
My graphics card overheats though, even with the fan on full. Something must be wrong with it, so it tends to slow down alot while the GPU cools down every 15 minutes or so.
