The ASUS was again the fastest overall in both games, though the difference between it and the other overclocked cards were practically negligible. In many cases, it could be debatable whether it was worth getting an overclocked variant since the performance gain seemed very minor. The GeForce 8600 GTS cards generally faltered in FarCry at 1600 x 1200, with even the overclocked versions unable to maintain more than 30 frames per second and for Splinter Cell, this threshold was reached at 1920 x 1440.
