Quake 3

Many of you might wonder why I would throw in this benchmark since the game is ridiculously old.  The reason is that it is a great benchmark to test a video card's old OpenGL support and performance.  While not very system intensive (runs at 500 frames per second for Pete's sake), the game is still currently popular and widely played.  I found the Quake 3 benchmark to be quite mind boggling.  As mentioned earlier, Nvidia provides better OpenGL support so I expected the 6600 GT to dominate the X800 GT.  Surprisingly, it was the other way around.
