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:

We tested in the opening town where new characters start.

Guild Wars is a very CPU limited game and as such the performance differences between resolutions and quality settings are pretty slim.  That being said, the GX2 is nearly the top performing card here with the 7900 GT SLI setup coming in just ahead of it.  The single GPU 7900 GTX and X1900 XTX still play the game very well but are just slightly slower overall.
