You can play fear on a 6800gs (card im using) but i dont know how much it is, i got it from a friend 6 mo ago.

BIOSTAR GEFORCE 6100-M9 MOTHERBOARD: $59.99
I dont trust biostar, the two boards i had both were crap. coulda been the luck of the draw though.

I ran the free F.E.A.R. multiplayer on my ****** system with a crappy Radeon 9200, it looked decent but not amazing...

I only ran it because it was free, not really a gamer. But if it can run on my system...wow, it'll run on anything.

Yea.. I first suggested that motherboard, only to realize the pci-e bus is limited to x8. However, it doesn't matter as the cards within his budget would utilize the bandwidth.
