Just loaded up fear for the first time last night and it seems to be a good game, but I;m only getting 20 to 30 FPS. Not sure what I'm missing here. Need help. What you see in my profile is what I have now. Is there something more I need or a upgrade so this game will run better

I do have it pluged in. I had to buy a cable for my 500 watt X connect so it should have power.It seems that something is holding me back right now. The card is a BGF 6800 gt oc and it should run just fine. I know I don't have the best memory, but not sure if that could be the problem

What settings are you playing? This is one of the most demanding games out right now and there is no way a single 6800GT and only 1GB of memory can handle maximum settings. Also for a big performance increase, turn of soft shadows.

Fear seems to be hard on resources unless you have the best stuff out haha

I get 30-60fps on my setup in medium.

Eh... I got a 45FPS average with soft shadows off, AF 2x AA off and with everything else totally maxed out with the res at 1024x765 with 1 gig of PC3200, and my 2.6GHz NWC running at 3.3GHz. And with my x850 XTPE, I got about 75 fps average with the same video settings.

The problem is that game developers code the game on $10K machines and expect people on $2K machines to play them.

F.E.A.R. lags a bit for me too. I can't run it on max settings either.
