The stock $600 PC is playable at the two lowest resolutions. Solid performance gains are seen when overclocking, making even 1920x1200 a playable resolution.
The $600 PC takes a huge performance hit with the added demands of 4x MSAA. Even overclocked playability is limited to the lowest resolution.
Results are CPU-limited and the stock E5200 once again isn’t capable of handling maximum details in World In Conflict. Luckily, the chip has the potential for much more and delivers an impressive 41% increase in performance when raised to 3.5 GHz.
