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 the 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.

Once again, the 4770 was outperformed by every other card, but the margins were much smaller. The largest gap between the GTS 250 and the HD 4770 was seven FPS. The most the 4850 outperformed the 4770 by was four, and the 4770 was only outperformed by the 9800GTX+ by five FPS at best. With the overclock, the 4770 gave an FPS increase of four to six frames. This allowed it to beat all cards except the 4870.
