I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on what game is the most graphically demanding right now? I am playing Dark Messiah right now (came with card). Is there anything else? Gothic 3 demo maybe? Flight Sim X? What do you guys think?

If I was in beta, I might have found out that there is currently some kind of driver issue with Vanguard right now that should be fixed shortly...But I'm not in beta :p so I have no idea :)

F.E.A.R. doesn't support SS and AA, It's a game limitation.

Not sure of your purpose for asking this. if you want some benchmarks for the 8800GTX in general, just look at the large number of 8800gtx reviews on the net, it will give you a good idea of how it performs in all the newest games. if you want to test your card specifically, i would just recommend 3dmark2006 and compare it with other 8800gtx's to make sure yours is performing fine. If you just plain want to see the best, most stunning graphics the pc has to offer, thats obviously pretty subjective...

Also, regarding SS in Fear, even if they did not ANY performance penalty with them, i would not use 'em. they are an ugly, horrible implementation of SS.

Try Splinter Cell: DA.

luckily Fear isnt really demanding anymore. Remember when it was just viewed as this insane hardware-devouring beast of a game? it gives me warm fuzzies thinking of how fast we are advancing in 3d graphics =)

Neverwinter Nights 2 is pretty demanding. Not sure if you have it though.

SC: DA , CoJ , Oblivion (HDR+AA) , FEAR (either AA or SS) ............. or King Kong the Gamers Edition (if anybody ever had that game :p) , TR:L (next gen mode) , CoD2 & X3.

Oblivion with every texture mod you can find :D

Qarl's Texture Replacer 2 and a LOD texture replacer (like Captnkill's) would be a good place to start

And then edit the .ini to have an insane draw distance and tons of shadows :)

Its not so much that its demanding but one of the most badly coded/optimized pc games in recent memory,FEAR also falls into that slot quite
well.

Call of Juarez, Company of Heroes. Splinter Cell DA is way to crappy right now. Maybe wait for a few patches because it feels like a straight port.

Chronicles of Riddick in PS 2.0++ mode with soft shadows. :)

Quake 2 :D

I wonder if its possible to make Quake 2 run at less than 99fps constant with any settings at any resolution on an 8800GTX. I want to try it at 2048x1536 with 16xQ AA :p

Oooh Yeah.

CoR with PS2.0++ killed my 6800GT AND my 7900GTs in SLI.
