Well i just bought a new pc, the following

Intel pentium D 820 dual core (says its 2.8ghz) but the seller said it runs at 3.2
2 x 1024mb ram, 500-600fhz fsb
250gig hardive
450w cpu

I am looking for a new graphics card that will run games like FEAR on 1280x1024, at good fps. I am going to spend around £100 on one, please any recommendations?

If you can get a hold of one, the XFX 6800GS card is well under £100 and gives a decent frame rate.

Either that or the 7600GT cards are pretty good value for money at the moment.

I am going to buy my graphics card from http://www.novatech.co.uk. They have more than one type of 7600gt and i looked on http://www.neoseeker.com for reviews about it and they have graphs of the fps for games they test etc and the 7600 didnt seem to run FEAr with good fps :s
