  1. Well i have overclocked a 8800gts(g92) to a 9800gtx+ and i want it to run fear 2. Soi downloaded the demo and im getting like 30 frames, and sometimes a little stutter its not the over clock i tested everyhting but is it because of such heavy graphics of fear 2that makes this card stutter
    Im palying it on max everything on 1440 X 900
    with a amd 64 X2 2.5ghz with 3gb of ram windows xp sp2
    with a sb audigy sound card any suggestion on why such low frames?

    Simple answer to this type of question is update your drivers.

    All of my drivers are up to date even the newest nvidia patch. Every single driver is up to date

    Well, there went that idea :)

    Maybe someone else knows, at least in the meantime I bumped this back up to the top for you.

    Wait you OVERCLOCKED to a 9800gtx+...? like an 8800gts at 9800gtx+ speeds? or upgraded?


    Either way since you have latest drives...its probably not the card.


    Check your settings, if your resolution is above 1024 x 768, maybe turn it down a bit, how big is your monitor?
    Also make sure you have AntiAliasing (AA) turned off.

    I don't know much about FEAR2 graphics, but they might be a tad higher than your athlon can handle. If you can, try recording FPS, then overclock your CPU and recording FPS again to see if its higher.

    Why do you have 3 gigs of RAM?

    Its probably not the problem, but 3 gigs is a weird amount, how does that work? You would need two or four identical RAM sticks to run full dual channel mode.

    What kind of psu are you using. The game isn't even out yet, its a demo. You think it may not be your card at all?

    Oh um, again i would say 90%+ cards can NOT handle newer games at that resolution IF you have anti aliasing on. AA is probably the number 1 FPS killer.
