Here are the results for Call of Duty at both resolutions.
Call of Duty 2: Top Performance (frames per second)
OK, more along the lines of what I would expect, pure performance wise. You may be scratching your head wondering where the 8800GTS 320MB is for the higher resolutions, why is it not on the graph ahead of the 3850 or 3870? It wasn't tested at 1600x1200 or 1680x1050, that's why.
Call of Duty 2: Top Performance Per Dollar (frames per second per dollar, scaled)
So the HD 3850 cards are popping up all over the place, but what surprised me the most is that an 8800GTS 640 card made it to 3rd place at the higher resolutions. Even though it's more expensive, the amount you pay extra you get as extra performance (almost twice as much performance, but also twice as much price, so it evens out).
