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 stock scores for COD:WAW are once again very similar between all of the boards. At the lowest resolution, MSI's X58 Platinum board manages to take the lead by a few FPS. No board dominates at the 1680x1050 resolution. They all score more or less the same. Except, of course, for the Platinum, which trails by 4FPS. At the highest resolution, MSI's Eclipse Plus steals the glory.

The overclocked settings didn't provide much of an increase in scores for any of the boards. Every benchmark showed similar results except for at the 1280x1024 resolution, where the ECS board beat the Platinum by one FPS! The boards gained 1-3 FPS per resolution, except for the ECS X58B-A at the 1280x1024 resolution. At those settings, the ECS board managed to give a 7FPS increase.
