Yay 50 hours to go!!!!!!! This will be the first PC game I've played in five years. Will this be taxing on my computer if I have 61.1 GB and will my computer be able to run it with a decent old graphics card?

Be a little more specific. :p For decent performance, youd need at least 512 ram, a 2 ghz processor and a decent high end GF4/9600 ATI card. With that kind of a rig you should be able to play with most of the pretty options on low/off. The game is a very huge resource hog, and take in mind that being the demo, the code isnt 100% optimized. Still, considering that the game is due out in only a few months, they are probably finishing the optimizing process and moving onto Bughunting and QA.

To make sure which options to switch on/off or at what setting, check a detailed tewak guide:

Ok, I think my computer sucks(for games).
I got a Intel Pentium III 850 MHz processor, 504 MB of RAM, and a Trident Video Accerlerator Blade 3D(32 bit) (60Hz).

Single player demo is runs much better than the FEAR MP beta. I'm hoping that the multiplayer will run as good as the single player.

Well the only reason I have this computer is that my dad bought that Pentium III processor and it was too fast for our other one so he just bought some cheap parts and put it together.

And whats a good laptop for playing games?

Laptops aint good for playing games. :p Unless you want to pay double the price of what it would cost you to get a decent desktop rig, that is.

Maybe they'll put in a feature where if you shoot her in the head, gold coins pop out of it for you to collect.

The part with the Ladder/Girl didnt freak me much, I almost was expecting something to happen in that suspiciously empty area, so when she appeared, I was like "hah, thought so, lets move on". Then when I get to the bottom of the ladder and turn left, FREAKY SHADOW GUY shrieks in my face and BAMFS. Scared the hell outta me.

I see what you did there, Monolith. Nice one. Creepy girl makes you think theres no scares coming for a while, and WAHM, heart attack in your face. Bastards.

I have a sneaking suspicion that I am being mocked, but nevertheless, that seems like a plot to an awesome game.
