Fallout 3

Fallout 3 is an action role-playing game released by Bethesda Game Studios. It is the third major game in the Fallout series, and it has received a positive response from critics who have praised its open-ended gameplay and flexible character-leveling system. fallout 3 has been compared to the 2007 game BioShock for its setting and use of elements from mid-twentieth century American culture. We tested the game at resolutions of 1,920 x 1,200 and 2,560 x 1,600 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled and all in game graphical options set to their maximum values.

Although the GeForce GTX 285 was technically the fastest card here overall, the grouping is so tight it's hardly worth talking about.  Even with Intel's fastest quad-core Core 2 processor available and 4GB of RAM at the heart of our test system, Fallout 3 is still essentially CPU bound at both resolutions with the high-end cards.
