You should have expected to see the video card come into play much earlier on these cards, and you did here at 4x/8x.  The 6800 card pulls out ahead of the other two, which remain in deadlock.

While both the 6600GT and the 9800 Pro remain consistent and equal in performance here, the 6800 card out does them quite handily.

The 6800 card does win on this test as well, but as the resolution is higher, the differences between the cards gets smaller.  And in any event, 1600×1200 isn’t playable on these three cards.
