Is there actually a video card that can play F.E.A.R on full

Is there actually a video card that can play F.E.A.R on full settings and not lag.

Is the BFG 7800gtx one of them.
If not when will that new ATI x1900xtx come out and how much will it cost.

ACtually... include prices with all recomendations.

  1. Im Running An EVGA 7800GT And I Can Run F.E.A.R At Maximum Detail (Including Soft Shadows) @ 1600x1024 (My 17.4" Wide-Screen SGI LCDs Native Res.) w/4xAA And 8xAF With No Lag And Its Smooth As Silk, So Any 7800xx Series Card (And Im Not An ATI Person) But The X1800xx And X1900xx Series Cards SHOULD Also

    I've got a 7800GT as well. Mine is clocked bone stock and the rest of my system is not nearly as nice as yours. My system will not play FEAR smooth with all that stuff turned on. It does a pretty nice job but it will get choppy if you totally max it out. Of course it could be the rest of the system or your overclock that makes yours run so good.
  3. May I Ask Your System Specs Please?
  4. Try these.... They also have some nVidia cards in the graphs...

    F.E.A.R. X1900XTX

    As for the price between $600 and $700... 8O

    ^ I have a 7800GT, awesome card, can't beat the price off newegg either. I can play FEAR maxed out at 1024 x 768 with my Sony 19" LCD
  6. X1900XTX's are available at NewEgg under $600 and are available, I found a HiS for $620 including shipping
  7. i have yet to see a comarison with a 7800gt which is what i have changed to getting instead of the 1900xt, and am wondering if it can play full setting at 1600x1200 or whatever without softshadows, over 30 fps or close?
  8. X1900's in crossfire yeah or an xtx by it's self!
  9. http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/ati_radeon_x1900_crossfire_performance/default.asp

    Here is one comparing the X1800XT, the X1900XT was not out yet... Good comparison, only the 1900's would be faster.

    http://www.driverheaven.net/reviews/X18Crossfire/index.htm
  10. The 1900XTX is currently the top-of-the-line card, and I've seen it handle FEAR on all settings at 1600x800 resolution, but to save a few $$, I'd buy the 1900XT and overclock it to the XTX's speeds (that's the only difference, about 50MHz in speed). nVidia is going to be lowering their prices quite a bit in the near future, and the 7800GTX 512 or 7900GTX can handle FEAR at the same settings, you'll just get slightly lower FPS (this is assuming you run all the cards at stock speed). The bare minimum card I'd go with is a 7800GT.
  11. If you just have to have the best of the best...

  12. I Can Play F.E.A.R. in Max Settings 4xAA,16xAF Also With SuperSampling AntiAliasing Mode , & My Intellisample Setting Are Set To High Quality , But With These Setting The Frame Rates Get Low In Heavy Action So I Reduce The Resolution To 800x600 & Now Even With SuperSampling AA The Frame Rate Is Above 70 Even In Heavy Actions :twisted:
  13. any decent card can play fear..i mean decent at least 256 ram and 256 bit
    interface....turning all the setting on ..and i mean expecially soft shadows ..will require a strong cpu

    ohh.and i play fear at 1024x768 aa4x af16x all details to the max except soft shadows ofcourse :lol:

    i bet you cannot play fear on duron 1ghz 128 ram and x1900xtx...a joke of course but you guys know what i meant
  14. Sorry Boy But F.E.A.R. Is an Ultimate GPU Limited Game , You Must Search For Some CPU Charst The Difference Between An AMD 64 FX 57 & MY CPU ( Stock 1.8GHz) is ONLY 3 FRAME ... So I Thinks A Duron 1GHz With X1900XTX Can Run F.E.A.R. Much Better Than Your Or My System !
    & Another Thing Is I Play F.E.A.R. In 800x600 ( 4xAA16xAF MAX ) For 2 Reason :
    1- First I Use Transparensy AntiAliasing That Reduce The Frame Rate (Example From 145 To 120 )
    2- I Want My Frame Rate To Be ALWAYS ( Even in Heavily Battle ) More Than 70 !
    & Off Course I Can Play F.E.A.R. in 1024x768 But With MSAA in Heavy Actions Frame Rate Dropped To 20~30 & I Dont Like It :evil:
  15. relax man relax.........take it easy..you sound so angry you misspelled allmost all the words :wink:

    bleahh...i said all the decent cards like mine and yours ...you don`t actualy believe that you can play fear on duron 1ghz 128 ram and heavy shiet like x1900xtx......just kidding :P

    well on my shiet ..gets 100% over 40fps ..including heavy scenes..at 1024x768 all settings high, aa4x af16x ..except soft shadows.....
  16. I'm playing FEAR on max settings at 1600x1200.

    I have an AMD 64 X2 4400+, eVGA 7800 GT 256 MB video card, 2 GB of Corsair XMS memory and an ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe mobo.

    I run dual screens, both 1600x1200, and will play FEAR, World of Warcraft, and many other games on their highest settings while doing other stuff on the other monitor like burning DVD's; no problems.
  17. Any 7900 should be able to do. Make sure you don't bottleneck it with a crap ass CPU/memory combo though.
  18. Wow , Very Interesting : Can You Please Post All Of Your Frame Rate From F.E.A.R. PerFormance Tests Like This (It`s My Benchmark ) :
    1024x768 Max Quality 4xAA+16xAF + MutilSampling AA ( High Quality Intellisample ) & OffCourse W/O SoftShadows :
    Min : 34
    Ave : 58
    Max : 142
    20% Between 25~45 Frame
    80% Above 45 Frame
    I`m Really Interesting In Your System Man ... I Didnt Buy ATI Since My 9800Pro ... If An ATI Radeon X850XT PE Can Run F.E.A.R. That Perfect ( Even More Perfect Than A 7800GT :( , I Think It Is Time To Change My Graphic Card To An ATI Card ...
  19. Only the uber-new ATi cards give Nvidia a beating in FEAR, becuase of the 48 pixel shaders, and FEAR is extremely shader heavy.
  20. good thinking man....the key word in here is bottleneck.......mem....bad mobo...crapy cpus.....i think anything can hold down the video ..even in fear...which i agree is gpu intensive of course.....

    sure we all understand what that means not much difference between cpus in here ..as some friend upstairs said 3 fps between two cpus......but remember that there are a lot of people watching these forums ...same with no IT experience .. and same could think that you can run fear on duron.....with x1900xtx as i joked earlier...poor little duron .....

    I used my friend's Opteron 165 overclocked to 2.7 versus my Venice at 2.8. I lost 2 FPS. That goes to show how much difference a CPU makes. I just don't want some moreon to run this on his 3.0ghz Intel or AMD 3000 and wonder why he can't play everything on 1600x1200 soft shadows.
  22. My 7800GTX 256 SLI can play FEAR at 1280x960 res. with all setting to max and to include soft shadows and volumetric lights. I get an average of 64-68fps. :D
  23. http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/digest3d/0206/itogi-video-f-wxp-aaa-2048-pcie.html

    ATi is owning on FEAR right now but as others have said you do need a decent CPU.

    theres noo way in hell your running the settings like that in fear with out extremely getting low frames. i have a 7800gtx OC, an fx 55, and 2 gigs of ram, and i cant get it that high without chopping a good portion of my frames, i run it at 1024x768, everything maxed wtih soft shadows, 2 AA and 4x filters. and with that setting, it runs smooth, with very little slow down at certain parts. so if your running at those settings your saying, its def not "smooth as silk" the whole game.
  25. You Must Know That SoftShadows Does NOT Work With AntiAliasing ... I Think You Should Disable AA & Then Benchmark Again Man ...

    This is totally off topic and I apologize in advance.....but I just find the need to ask you why you always post w/almost every word capitalized. Doesn't it take more effort to type that way? To each his own and it certainly doesn't bother me. I just find it a bit odd. :roll:

    Yeah right; my system can't play F.E.A.R. on those settings "Smooth as Silk".
  28. Fear, the way it was meant to be played :wink:

  29. what the lord are you saing man ...i don`t understand a word out of it......
    what 9800pro ... what the ...

    my shiet .... is x850xt 16pixel pipes 6 vertex pipes 520 core default 1080 mem ddr 3 defult 256 bit interface and so on ...bla bla bla ...
    i can assure you my friend .. that this shiet runs fear like hell.....
    buy the way don`t givemme that shiet with sm3 cause fear is written in sm2 shader model so ...

    i`m a sistem builder ..and i have access to all cards on the market...except for one that haven`t been build yet...

    i`ve test gt card gtx cards ..from nvidia and that one 7800gt had actualy a little worse performance than my personal shiet...x850xt....

    i could not believe myself and i`ve done a little coputing ..here is the answer.....x850xt has arround 34,6Gbps total bandwith and that one in particular 7800gt has 32...that could be the difference......don`t get me wrong..there is not much difference between the two of them...but ..in same scenes you can notice same ..in heavy battle scenes ...here it cames the memory bandwith

    i change them a lot .. for my computer ... i personaly wanted a card like that ...but the price is higher than the one i ended with so..i went for the ati card.....it has incredible performance for it`s price..

    there is difference between gtx ..gtx are good are faster than ati cards posted above....
    i do a lot of testing i use the same sistem ofcourse a lot of ram ..as i said i have acces to all kind of stuff.........
    sure i don`t mind i can post you screen shots ... just give me same time to install the shiet ..... i`m at work....after all first work then fun... :lol:

    yo peace everybody
  30. Sorry For That Post :oops:
    And I Think I`m Kind Of Like It To Type EveryWord Capitalized :D
    & If You Dont Like It Tell Me ... & I Agree With You & Heyyou27 ... There Is No Way In Hell That Hella-D Can Play F.E.A.R. ( First Encounter Assault Recon :D ) Like That :!:
    But Why Doesnt Any Body Know That SoftShadows Doesnt Work With AA ( AntiAliasing ) ??
    & LordBelial You Should Try To Play F.E.A.R. Like Me & With MultiSamling AA And Gamma Correction AA The Game Looks Much More Better Than 1024x768+2xAA+4xAF :twisted:
  31. OK , OK , Its Just A Missunderstanding For Me ... I Though That 7800GT Is Bettet Than X850 XT ( I Wish I Bought X850XT Few Month Ago Insted Of 7800GT :cry: )
    Freedom ... Freedom ... I Cant Hear You ... ( Lets Just Back Into Iron Maiden 2001 Rock In Rio ... Ah... Forget About F.E.A.R. ... I Had Such A Great Time In Rio ... :oops: :oops: )
  32. not to worry my friend 7800 gt is excelent card ....... both are x850xt is excelent too...........same games are better on ati same on nvidia..that`s the beauty of it..
    peace my friend............... :lol:
  33. ohhh...RIO you happy lamb...please please take me with you next time ..... i`m tired of technology ..my booty is stucked in a chair surrounded by electronics and electromagnetic fields.... :D
