Guild Wars

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 is quite good.  Here are the graphics settings we used:

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  1

We tested in the opening town where new characters start. 

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  2

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  3

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  4

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  5

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  6

The two NVIDIA cards have higher Maximum FPS results here but other than that the three cards perform very similarly due to the CPU-boundness of most MMORPGs.

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  7

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  8

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  9

NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB GPU Preview - Graphics Cards  10

Again, even in SLI mode, all three configurations perform nearly the same.
