hey guys, im gonna be building a new PC in May and i was wondering if you guys knew what kind of PC Specs i would need to run FEAR and Oblivion on max settings at about 30-40 fps? I know there both very graphicly demanding, so any help would be great.
Well good luck trying to play fear on maz settings with that budget. But then again at 800*600 you might just be able to. I have a 1950pro and i can play oblivion with everything max including resolution but in fear I have to disable soft shadows and some other settings for it to run at max res.
I have to say that, the resolution you intend to play at is not going to look all too pretty with max settings, say compared to a system with low settings but a higher resolution. Perhaps a mix inbetween would be better? Higher reslution but lower settings?
