It should run it ok as long as you dont have soft shadows turned on.
Very nice!

A Bottleneck is just the component that will give the most performance gain when upgraded. It is impossible to build a system without a bottleneck as there is always something that can be improved.
For example, the bottleneck in a system, built for games, with an FX57 and a 7800GT is likely to the be the CPU. Ram must also be considered as well.
This bottleneck won't make the system slower, it's just useful to let us know what next to upgrade. In other words, having a bottleneck does not give a performance hit. It also cannot be reduced, it either is still the bottleneck or it switches to another component.
Hope this helps, it's important to use this term correctly, as people are getting confused by the term "having a bottleneck" and trying to eradicate it.

Very good way of putting it.. And Kobra, your card will play fear at 1280x1024 maxed everything likely.. Its at 1600x1200 it likely wont.

pandapimp's 3800+ dual core and XFX 7800GTX Overclocked with 2GB of G.SKILL DDR500 runs F.E.A.R. totally maximum, 4xaa 16xaf, soft shadows on (neither him nor I saw more than 1-2FPS drop by enabling this, is that a bad sign?) at 1600x1200 at about 60-80FPS solid. So I would think a 7800GT should do it at max at 1600x1200 at atleast 40FPS+.

EDIT/// forgot to say, this was with his CPU at 250x10 2.5GHz, he now has it OCed to 2.6GHz but we haven't played F.E.A.R. since then since we beat it and were thoroughly scared by it

I'm curious what information you're using to determine this. I'm not questioning what you said or anything, I'm just curious how to determine if a cpu will bottleneck a gpu.

If you run Aquamark, it will give you a GFX and a CPU score. Whichever is the lowest is likely to be the Bottleneck in games.

But that would require that you have the hardware already... or that you can find scores for similar hardware that someone else has posted. I was hoping there was perhaps something a bit more scientific.
