Guild Wars – Mid Range and Budget

Guild Wars (Direct X)


Guild Wars is another quality MMORPG from the makers of City of Heroes, only this one is free!  Well, you have to buy the game, but still…  I have several um, er…friends that are playing this now and it quite good.  Here are the graphics settings we used:

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 197

We tested in the opening town where new characters start. 

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 198

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 199

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 200

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 201

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 202

It just never stood a chance!  For whatever reason the X1600 XT fails horribly here to two cards from a previous generation architecture.

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 203

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 204

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 205

ATI R520: Radeon X1800, X1600 and X1300 Review - Graphics Cards 206

And the same is repeated here at the budget level of cards; NVIDIA completely wipes the floor with the X1300 Pro.
