Like Half Life 2, World in Conflict comes with a built-in benchmarking tool. The tool plays a set series of animations, using the game's engine. The 7950GX2 supplied passable (>20 fps) framerates at 1280x1024 and below. Beyond that, framerates plateaued at 15fps and then bottomed out in the single digits at the 4M pixel mark.

The 9800GX2 provides significant improvement across the board, with the frame rate delta increasing as the pixel count grows. At 1024x768, we see a 9fps (+35%) improvement; while at the high end (3840x1024 and 2560x1600), we see a 19fps (+211%) improvement.

No matter what resolution you play at, the 9800GX2 provides a worth while investment. If you play at the higher resolutions, you the bang is better for each buck.

This test was run using the built-in stress test. All setting were maxed out. It was run with 4xAA and V-sync off.
