Left 4 Dead
Left 4 Dead is a cooperative, 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 visuals 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 1920 x 1200 and 2560 x 1600 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled and all in game graphical options set to their maximum values.

In this benchmark, we see more of the same between the GTX 285 cards. When compared to the GTX 285 SLI, GTX 295 and the 4870 X2, they all fare well at 1920x1600 though not as well at 2560x1600.  Regardless, all frame rates recorded here would obviously appear very fluid with lots of extra headroom actually.
