Advanced Benchmarks: FarCry, Doom 3

FarCry Source: Ubisoft

Real-time editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features that the CryENGINE offers. The game was set to Ultra quality and the Ubisoft's Regulator and Training demos were run.

AA is a bit too much for the Gigabyte GV-NX66T256DE, you might be able to get away with 2x AA but anything else is just too much.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced OpenGL game to date. It takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limits. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

Like we saw with FarCry, Doom 3 with AA/AF is simply too much for the videocard.
