CPU Shootout

The results of this Firing Squad CPU F.E.A.R. Test is pretty interesting .... everyone's a winner. Yup, pretty much every CPU they tossed at the game performed roughly the same. An Extreme Edition 3.6Mhz chip, costing about $300 performed roughly the same as $175 3.0Ghz P4. Bottom line being that most of the heavy lifting is clearly done by the video card, which in this case was a hefty 7800.

Course, they didn't dip down into the budget market, so it's hard to say how the CheapBox's Celeron D would fare in this lineup.
