Default Im not bragging, id really like to know.

Ok, i know none of you will belive me about this. Ok, how am i able to play doom 3 at ultra settings 1024x768 with no lag whats so ever. And FEAR at max setting s at 1024x768 were the lowest FPS i get is 25?, but averages over 40? I have a 6800 128mb, gig of RAM, and a athlon xp 2800+barton. I thought id get like 1-2 fps with max settings on both of the games.

i doubt you can play doom3 at Ultra settings. That takes 512MB of video card memory. The 6800 is not a bad card whatsoever.

Yes it is, the pipelines and vertex shaders are unlocked, and its overclocked from the stock 325/600 to 400/750. But i double checked since you said its impossible, and your right, i forgot that you have to reset the game for it changes to take affect, so i was getting an average of 25 FPS. Which sucks. But FEAR doesnt make you, so how am i able to run fear at such high settings?

Are you sure? So you are saying a gtx couldn't play that game on ultra? I don't really believe that.

It would be pretty hard to believe that the gtx 256mb one could'nt run fear on ultra, thats a bit of nonsense right there. I'm pretty sure it would be able todo that with ease, and I'd ber very suprised if it couldn't.
