then look to dish out $300-$600 if you want high settings. A 6600gt will run it on low to medium settings with good fps.

Well I gues than then u are looking at the 6600GT or the 6800 series. I'm not sure how well F.E.A.R runs with the 6600GT.

No chance of running F.E.A.R with a x300. Maybe with the lowest graphics and like 5FPS.

As I said Im not sure how well F.E.A.R runs with a 6600GT. I'd say it runs well if u just keep the fsaa at about x2 or x4 and dynamic lights at medium or low. The rest should be able to be maxed out, ofcourse ur other parts need to be good too.

But someone with a 6600GT should know better than I do.

You can run doom 3 on a 5700LE easly but not very good. Id say since your on a budget, but want to be able to get high resalutions and quality, id say a regular old 6800/non gt,ultra

well I can run doom3 with a normal fx 5700 with maximum graphics, just have to keep the aa quite low and it works fine. Though I don't get much FPS, don't know how much but I know it can't be much.

I suggest u get the 6600GT, but if u want to have the fsaa at x16 and the dynamic lights at max in F.E.A.R then I doubt that 6600GT is enough.

I ran F.E.A.R. on my x800 at high settings with just a little lag here and there, but that's it. I've oc'ed, so yeah, but yeah, anything from 6600 and up will run it. Anything from an x800 and up will run it so yeah.

I set the resolutions high but I haven't played with the lighting affects yet. I'll look forward to doing that and see the results.
