F.E.A.R = Ownage - Page 4

Does the native resolution of an lcd screen increase performance? Is the native resolution the max of the lcd? Sorry for the noobish questions.

The native resolution is the max of the lcd. The higher the resolution, the less performance (fps in game-wise).

My lcd's max is 1600x1200 which is way too high for my video card. Are people saying running in this resolution will improve the look of the game, other than the fact that its crisper due to more pixels?

It will just look crispier due to more pixels. The look of the game is solely adjusted in the game display options and has nothing to do with the resolution size.

An X800 should be able to run it on high with 1600x1200 as long as you go easy on the soft shadows and the anti aliasing. I ran F.E.A.R. at all high with 2xaa, 16xaf and soft shadows on, all other settings on Maximum and got about 30FPS but it occasionally lagged due to my 1GB of RAM so I put all graphics settings to Medium just to make sure when something scary was supposed to happen, it wouldn't lag and ruin the moment I have to say F.E.A.R. was definitely the best game of '05 for me, and '05 was a pretty darn big year!

I just revisited this thread and thought that I would point out that this statement is very important for people to understand and consider, also you should always take any and all reviews with a grain of salt.
