Fallout 3 takes place after the nuclear holocaust that nearly wipes out civilization and leaves the world an irradiated mess. The vault, or fallout shelter, you are born in is Vault 101, situated in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia area. The premise of the game is that the Vault has been sealed for 200 years and now your father has opened the vault and escaped without a trace. The Overseer believes you are involved, so you must escape as well into the wasteland that was once our nation's capital. I find myself looking for landmarks since I am familiar with the streets of Washington DC.
- Game Settings: Maximum
At 1280x1024 you would be hard pressed to tell the difference in performance when playing Fallout 3 with any of the comparison cards. Once you reach 1920x1200 though, the cards' performances do vary greatly. By toning the settings down a bit, the HD 4770 would be all the more capable of playing at 1920x1200. Even with the settings at the maximum level, it still delivered playable frame rates in demanding situations.
