Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead is a co-operative, survival horror, first-person shooter that was developed by Turtle Rock Studios, which was purchased by Valve part-way into development. Like Half Life 2, the game uses the Source engine, however, the visual in L4D are far superior to anything seen in the Half Life universe to date. The game pits four Survivors of an apocalyptic pandemic against hordes of aggressive zombies. We tested the game at resolutions of 1,920 x 1,200 and 2,560 x 1,600 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled and all in game graphical options set to their maximum values.

Our Left 4 Dead benchmark results look much like those from ET:QW on the previous page. Although the game works on the Radeon HD 5450, playable framerates will only be possible at lower resolutions with relativley low in-game quality settings.

So if you have any inclination of playing games released in the past 5 years on this thing - get another card!  Some people like mild gaming in their HTCP's, but I guess that's what the 5670 is for.

I wasn't away that card came in a low profile confiruration.... Either way.. you can pick up a half height GTS250 which will blow away the card in this article.

Or you could opt for a 9800GT which looks suspiciously the same lol...

with 512MB less ram and a $25 cheaper price tag.

Since many of us are convinced PC gaming is all but dead this level of performance has a strongly growing market amongst those that us PC's for other entertainment purposes, video, photography, research,Older games that still have play value .....most pre 2009

Computers have become like toasters pretty much any modern unit can do daily computing tasks well, which frees the consumer on price .....Ego be damned I want something that does the job cost effectively.
