Unreal Tournament is, to say the least, a rather curious benchmark to work with. First off, it seems more limited by the processor than the video card in most cases. Looking at the above two graphs, it seems that, on our testbed's 1 GHz P3, 45fps is tops. We could drop the resolution down to 300x200, and probably still score 45fps.

Only at higher resolutions does the video card become a factor, and even then, not by much. It's clear that a CPU upgrade will do more for Unreal than a video card will, as each of the cards here perform pretty similarly.
