Games to test my BFG 8800GT OC 512MB

  iqs 18:34 28 May 2008


I have just bought a BFG 8800GT graphics card,and was wondering what games to buy which would test its capabilities please.

I have just bought Bio Shock,I know that Crysis and COD4 are cutting edge,but any others?.

Nothing will test your card more than Crysis.Even with an 8800GT,i doubt you will be able to max it out.
COD4 will look stunning with that card,along with a decent framerate.
Apart from what you've mentioned there's a bit of a lull in the FPS department at the moment.
Roll on Farcry 2

Try Mass Effect should push your card to the limit)

Just to add it wont be out until around June/july
but it looks one hell of a game.

Mass effect pc release june 6th.
Does look good and has reviews in the 9/10+ range.
There's a gameplay video available.

conan is the highest hitting game i have, or any dx 10 game if you have the joy of using vista, select dx 10 shader 4 and the highest resolution with everything enabled.
remember your graphics card is only as good as the system that feeds it.

stalker is good test, prepyat city in particular had my card slowed to a walk.

I was away to suggest Stalker citadel. I bought it yesterday on budget and my PC does struggle a bit. Can't say I'm all that impressed with the game though, Crysis and COD4 were much better games in my opinion.
