What is your current computer or what model is the motherboard??


You listed an ati radeon 9250 pci bus..

If thats all you have then you cannot upgrade that machine to play fear on high settings.

Regular pci video cards are really slow and they do not offer high end video cards... If you had atleast an agp slot you could get a better video card but the newest interface is PCI Express. Agp still has some pretty fast cards out but some of the newly released pci express video cards make them look slow.

Fear needs a minimum of 1gb of ram to even run nicely 1.5gb of ram is more recommended. That celeron would struggle with alot of the newer games especialy on HIGH settings.


I would save up for a new system, the tower itself which you already have all the other components like monitor speakers etc..
