Call of Juarez
The ASUS EAH2600PRO is quite faster than the GeForce 8600 GT in the original DirectX 9 version of the game, but its performance is too low by itself, not giving you even a minimum of comfort. A more or less comfortable level of performance is achieved only by the ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT GDDR4 and by the already outdated but still robust ATI Radeon X1950 Pro. We’re talking about the lowest of popular resolutions, 1280x1024. For playing Call of Juarez at a resolution of 1600x1200 you need a much more advanced graphics card.
Judging by the results, it would be unwise to upgrade from an ATI Radeon X1950 Pro to an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT GDDR4 as both deliver roughly similar performance.
Call of Juarez DX10
The DirectX 10 version of Call of Juarez is not meant for owners of entry-level and mainstream graphics cards as the game will be too slow on them. As we have already found out in our previous article called DirectX 10 Games vs. Contemporary Graphics Accelerators, even top-end solutions don’t have a really high speed in this game.
