    So I normally use http://systemrequirementslab.com/cyri

    But, sometimes it fucks me over. Like for FEAR 3. Checking the site, it puts me UNDER the minimum requirements for the game. Buuut, when I look at what is needed for the game, I see this

    CPU is shown as fine with minimum needing Intel Core 2 duo 2.4 GHz, AMD Athlon X2 4800+ and I have an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+

    Ram is fine, I need 2gb minimum, and I have 2.1gb.

    OS is obviously fine, it requires Windows XP minimum, Max is Windows 7.

    Ready for the odd part?

    Video Card:

    Minimum: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512 MB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 3850 MB RAM or better
    You Have: GeForce 9500 GT

    So...am I missing something here? Is the 8800GT better than my 9500GT?

    I am currently downloading FEAR 3 just to test it. I'll be doing 1280x720 res, full screen and lowest possible settings as always. I refuse to believe I can't play it until I try it.

    CorruptDictator I want a custom title, but I dont trust VintagePC

    It should run, questionable how well. Never played FEAR 3 so I do not know how well it is optimized.

    Well I never plan on playing these games max settings =P I'll settle for minimum.

    I'm about to try and play through the FEAR games again and I am starting to get annoyed if I can't finish the final one because of my PC.

    FEAR was one of the first games I bought when I built my first rig after college, I wanted to love it, but the boring enemies and incredibly drab backgrounds really dragged the game down for me.

    Quick update, I am able to play it. Shit, the game runs smoothly. So yeah, that site really pisses me off when it says I don't meet the minimum requirements and yet...I CAN play. >_>

    So YAY! THE FEAR LP IS BACK ON BITCHES. Once I download 14gb...
