The first game I chose was F.E.A.R. Though somewhat dated, it's still a relevant game that pushes a lot of video cards to the limit. It didn't quite put the
8800GT through as much stress as some of the previous cards I have reviewed
though. During game play, I trekked outdoors, indoors, and enjoyed a small firefight.
The 8800 GT did pretty well with F.E.A.R., averaging 40.4 frames per second with 8xAA and 16xAF. An average of 93.9 with no AA is nothing shabby, either.
Comparing the XFX 8800GT 256MB with the EVGA 8800GT KO, it becomes apparent that the XFX is lacking
in the memory department. The XFX is 8 frames per second
slower at 4xAA and 16xAF, and 6 frames per second slower at 8xAA and 16xAF. It outperforms the EVGA card when we have no AA.
