Call Of Duty World at War:
Activision's Call Of Duty World at War goes right back to the bread and butter of the franchise - WWII FPS action. In this rendition, you start off in the South Pacific and move through a series of missions that flip back and forth between the Russian front and the island hopping advance toward the Imperial Japanese homeland. Included is a mission on Peliliu Island, arguably one of the more difficult and costly battles in the Pacific theater. The gameplay in the single player mode is rather short, but the game makes up for this shortcoming in online gameplay. If you thought COD4 looked nice, this game is amazing with the graphics maxed out playing at a large resolution. This game just may be my reason to move to a 30 inch monitor. I will use Fraps to measure a section of gameplay in the Semper Fi map on Makin Island to compare performance of these video cards.

The performance of the ENGTS 250 for CODWAW was strange to me. At the low resolution it scored about the same as BFG's GTS 250 and Sapphire's 4870. In the medium resolution the ENGTS 250 outperformed everything except for the 4870, which it tied. At the higher resolution, order was restored. The ENGTS 250 performed the same as BFG's card and better then the 9800GTX+. With the overclock we saw a healthy increase of FPS. This card performed outstandingly well at this game at the lower resolutions.
