I realize this is an old game but seriously my system is more than enough to handle 5+ yr old games no prob: Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L C2D e7200 @ 3515Mhz 4GB ocz ddr2800 Auzentech X Fi Prelude 7.1 ATI HD 5750 1GB Win 7 x64 Ult At first I couldn't even run it playable iit was so choppy. I mean so bad that during the credits during intro it took like over a minute between credits! But running in Win XP compatibility mode solved that. The game looks gorgeous at max settings in 1080p. Super gorgeous. And runs as smooth as butter. No lag ever. With 4x16x fsaa/af. But then every 10 or 15 minutes or so it screeches to a halt and has to be saved and restarted. Anyone else have this and/or know how to fix it running F.E.A.R. on a modern Win 7 system?
