The latest Need For Speed game, Need For Speed Carbon was the first game I tried on the XFX 8800GTX card. The game was fully playable up to 1600x1200 with 8XQ AA and 16x AF. The reflections on the windshields, the paint jobs on the cars, the graphics of the sky are all wonderfully done with Pixel Shaders. The 8800GTX can play this game fully without reservation.

Bethsheda Softworks released Star Trek Legacy to the PC last month. While many have found the game lacking, once you get used to the controls, the game actually is a lot of fun. This is the only computer game where you can captain any of the Enterprise starships from the show, including the NX-01 up to the NCC-1701-E Sovereign class starship. Playing the game on the XFX card was a good experience with 16xQ AA and 16x AF fully playable at every resolution I tried.

Benchmarking Battlefield 2142 is one thing. Playing online with 64 other players with a 10 megabit connection is quite another. The game is a bit of a system hog at times, especially when hosting a server with 64 players going at it at once. The game is fully playable with 16xQ AA and 16x AF up to 1600x1200 in most places on the 8800GTX from XFX.

Bethsheda released Oblivion last year to a lot of fanfare and rightly so. Since its release, Oblivion has been characterized as the greatest RPG of all time by some, giving over a hundred hours of playtime with many quests. Recently, Bethsheda has released an expansion pack, Knights of the Nine with all previous expansions included including the Horse Armor and the Orrery. The expansion pack adds new quests and items to the game. The game played at 1600x1200 with 8xQ AA 16x AF and HDR enabled without issue.
