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:

BFG Technologies GeForce 7900 GTX OC Review - Graphics Cards 70

We tested in the opening town where new characters start. 

BFG Technologies GeForce 7900 GTX OC Review - Graphics Cards 71

BFG Technologies GeForce 7900 GTX OC Review - Graphics Cards 72

BFG Technologies GeForce 7900 GTX OC Review - Graphics Cards 73

BFG Technologies GeForce 7900 GTX OC Review - Graphics Cards 74

BFG Technologies GeForce 7900 GTX OC Review - Graphics Cards 75

You’ll notice that the performance levels here are showing that the reference card is actually a bit faster than the BFG card.  The reasoing for this is that since the Guild Wars game is highly CPU bound, the number of gamers online at the time of testing can greatly change the performance numbers.  The results here are basically saying that there is little to no performance difference between these three configurations at all.
