Will my 9600GT be able to play call of duty world at war on full graphics without dropping below idk... 20fps?

*bit off topic*Also is it worth getting vista for DX10 not only on cod WW but other games?

thanks

World at War lacks a DX10 path, but will of course run just fine on Vista.

The 9600GT should handle max settings with 4xAA/16xAF just fine and not drop below 20 fps so long as the resolution is 1440 x 900 or less.

HERE is an article that reviews the performance of how most current gfx cards(including the 9600)will run World at War.

How well do you run Call of Duty 4?  The games use the same engine.  I'm not sure if W@W is more intensive or not, but the difference should not be drastic.

I own both and have benched both via fraps. World at War is slightly more intensive... I'd say 10-15% lower fps(rough estimate)than Modern Warfare on average.

Additionaly I noticed that WaW puts a considerable amount of stress on the cpu vs MW. I came to this conclusion when monitoring temps during gameplay as the cpu reached load temps about 7-8c higher running WaW than while running MW.

I run cod on full at around 45-50fps maybe more on average unless huge firery expolsion right infront of my face... I asked my friend for the old beta (you cant play online but you can still set up a server with no one in it and go in tanks shoot rockets etc. and it seemed to run fine on my 22" monitor @ 1680x1050 on full graphics without any noticable lag... I am definetly going to buy buy the game after I played it at a friends house and i really enjoyed it!

Thanks for all the help

My girls 9600gt runs it fine at 1280x1024. Not sure how it will run at 1680x1050. I can try it out on my monitor if you wish.

I got the game today! It is really fun and I enjoyed the single player part of it (havn't had time to play mulitplayer) I had fraps on for most of the time and it was averaging at around 40FPS on full graphics so im quite happy with my computers performance. Thanks for all the replies.
