Default Medium vs. High Quality Screenshots

Could anyone do me a favor and take screenshots of either BF2, Black & White 2, or F.E.A.R on both medium and high graphic settings , so I can see what difference it actually makes? I know many hardcore gamers here love running on high to get the most from a game, but to make that leap from medium to high in games like F.E.A.R. you need very demanding equipment.

I'd appreciate this greatly. I haven't been able to find any such things online.

here... I know it's not the best, but it's a start.... I could always do hl2 better, of course, but for F.E.A.R.... yeah....
the low...

and then the higher....

Hope this helps...

Whoa, big difference. Details are dramatically reduced. What did you do to make it so crappy? Reduced resolution?

Aww, damn. I was hoping the difference was nominal. This makes me want to be able to run F.E.A.R. on high settings.

What would you need to run it on high settings at a good FPS, anyway?

Good video card and CPU. More RAM helps too.

Look at my sig, i cant run FEAR at MAX settings. With very minimal lag. So you dont need something THAT good to run it at high.

You = lying. Don't lie. There is no way in hell that computer will run FEAR at the MAXIMUM settings.



This is how my games look.


Counter-Strike:Source at maximum settings, including full AA and AF with Vsync on at 72 max.




Counter-Strike:Source at maximum settings with AA and AF at full WITHOUT Vsync.



Call of Duty 2 at max settings, AA at 4 (thats the max) and AF just on (thats all it lets me at).




And I'm too lazy to put Battle Field: 2 in.
