VGA performance: Fallout 3 (DX9)
You know, its been a decade since the last Fallout release, and a lot has happened since then. Fallout 3 takes place roughly two-hundred years after a nuclear war devastated the planet. While the series originally started in Southern California, this time around youll find yourself in a post-apocalyptic Washington D.C., better known as the Capital Wasteland. You are a resident of Vault 101, one of a series of fallout vaults built to protect its inhabitants from the harsh conditions in the wasteland. As the story goes, in Vault 101, nobody enters - and nobody leaves. Raised as a child in the vault, the game begins with you as a young lad learning to take your first steps and continues as you grow older (this portion of the game is used as both a training mission and to build an affinity with your character). It isnt until you wake up one day to find the vault in chaos - your father has somehow left and its up to you to follow him into the wasteland - where the story really begins.
Fallout 3 is an immersive, graphically stunning title with that awesome movie feel. Easily one of the best games of 2008, a must buy Gurus... a must buy.

Fallout 3 then. We measure with 8x AA enabled, as youc an see the MSI Lightning crawls ahead of the GTX 275 here. ATI dominates though with their Radeon HD 4890.
Compared 1:1 the dynamic changes and though the MSI is a good chunk faster it's not extreme. Quite honestly I expect the 1792MB of graphics memory to make a biog difference here with 8xAA but naah, not really.
