the original poster has said he plays hl2 and fear as well. both games would be pretty cpu limited with most cards better than a 7950gt. again, please read before you post comments.

ok cool if that's the case. i didn't read it that way. i had already mentioned that it was a cpu limited game. normally when people agree they say "i agree" rather than just reiterating a previous statement.
