Oblivion is one of those games that shout next generation game to you the first time you play the game. The graphics are simply amazing with the game developers using Pixel Shaders, Vertex Shaders HDR throughout. The sequel to the mediocre Morrowind, Oblivion takes place in the nation of Tamriel. The 7950GT plays the game like a charm, with 1600x1200 mostly playable. NVIDIA cards can't do HDR+MSAA at the same time, which is the one drawback in Oblivion on an NVIDIA card.

Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is the bundled game included with the 7950GT. A futuristic world, GRAW is a fantastic showcase of the graphics capabilities of the GeForce 7950GT and cards like it. Pixel Shaders are used throughout the game with the missions taking place in an open arena. The 7950GT from XFX played this game with a lot of ease, 1280x1024 with 4x AA and 16x AF was almost completely playable, with areas of heavy action slowing down a bit.

Tomb Raider introduced me to 3rd person adventures in 3D back in 1999 along with the release of the original Playstation console. There have been a slew of Tomb Raider sequels and clones on the market since the first one. Tomb Raider Legend is the latest game from Eidos based upon that series. The game uses Pixel and Vertex Shaders throughout, with a PS 3.0 mode for cards like the 7950GT. The 7950GT runs this game smoothly at 1280x1024 4x AA 16x AF in most instances, averaging above 30 fps.
