Doom III

Seriously though, even games like that are really only going to stress half of the transistors on NV3x/R3xx.

Extreme Quality script setting on Serious Sam 2: The Second Encounter. Then add in some AA.

Anything with heavy use of shaders. Of course, does that really exist?

Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2002 is a heavy video card user. Definitly a good benchmark.

Thumbs up

I'll second the UT2003 suggestion, but be a bit more specific- use the UT2003 flyby benchmarks. Unless of course, you also have hold of some 4GHz processors and can actually see where the video card is causing the dips in botmatch benchmarks.

Quake 3 = Ancient
IMO UT2K3 will become the next game benchmarking standard
