Test Setup / Method

Test setup

Contrary to most, we’re doing our tests on a budget friendly Intel system; while it doesn’t compete with a decent Athlon 64 system, it can still hold its own, and it’ll be interesting to see if you can game comfortably when we add the 7800GT to this system.

    Test Method

    We have done manual run-throughs with 4 games with the 7800GT and GTX, setting the graphical quality so it offers fluent game play without sacrificing on image quality. The games we used for testing were:

  • Colin McRae 2005
  • Far Cry
  • Call of Duty
  • Painkiller

    All details were set to maximum in-game, and we altered FSAA and AF settings to find out the sweet spot of this setup ->
