Oblivion can put a hurt on all but the fastest cards on the market with maximum resolution, full settings and HDR enabled. It's one of the more demanding games on the market today in terms of computer power to run it effectively. The XFX 7900GS handles the game with some ease. I was able to game on the 7900GS comfortably at a resolution of 1600x1200 with HDR enabled and High Quality settings turned on. There were some instances where this would slow down, but most of the game was comfortable at that resolution with the XFX card.

FEAR or First Encounter Assault Recon was released last year to a lot of acclaim. I found it to be the scariest game of 2005, almost jumping out of my seat when the little girl first shows up in the game. FEAR taxes even the fastest graphics cards on the market, the x1950xt and the 7950 GX2 when trying to run the game above 1600x1200. The 7900GS is able to comfortably play FEAR at 1600x1200 with 2x AA and 16x AF. 4x AA is mostly playable except when there's a lot of action.

The end of World War II was over 60 years ago in 1945. Company of Heroes is a Real-Time Strategy game set in World War II with the Havok physics engine, destructible terrain and other modern graphics features. The demo for the game was released recently, and is another game in the genre. The demo played extremely well on the 7900GS with 1280x1024 being playable without error.
