Was wondering if anyone could help me fix this problem.
Ok i have some tips for you :
1.FEAR needs more than 1.5Gig of rams to run smooth.During the game when i popup to windows and see the task manager,it is usually reaching 1.5-1.6 on the RAM usage,this happens too on BF2,its so smooth with RAM 1.5Gig and more.So you may decide to upgrade since RAM these days are cheaper.
2.Since you are using ATI card,try to rename the FEAR.exe file to other name,e.g: FEAR1.exe . It will boost your FEAR perfomance.
Without tuning at 1280 2AA/4AF:
With tuning,filename changed to FEAR1.exe ,same display settings:
Hope this helps
