Let me play the game and then I might consider MP.

On my system, I am running it at high settings and 1152x864. This actually runs better than the demo did and, though not blowing myself away, I have to be in that 40FPS - 60FPS range. The main stuff was just disabling the bob, not enabling soft shadows, turning off mouse smoothing (though that's more for my own personal quirks,) and then finding a good combination of AF and resoltuion (currently 4x AF.)

I hate to say it, but the single biggest killer is your card. A 6800gt is nearly, esentially, twice the card of your 6600gt. The amount of memory and pipelines are double and F.E.A.R. eats that stuff up like mad.

But...what resolution do you normally play at? I would imagine 800x600 for F.E.A.R., but I would hope you could push 1024x768 with some tweaks. No AA, no AF, disable shadows, and do not put anything higher than medium. Otherwise...low is always an option and you can tinker around with forcing DX8 shaders or whatever that double shader option thingie is.

You do have to make some sacrifices, but you should still be able to play the game. You cannot do 1024x768 with everything set to medium and disabling shadows? What have you tried?
You know you are still evil for being Canadian, right?
Still sorting out my control scheme,
