Half Life 2

Lauded for its graphics, praised for exciting physics, and long-anticipated by the entire gaming community, Half-Life 2 is as demanding on your processor as it is your graphics card. We ran the game at both 1024x768 and 1600x1200 to get a feel for how performance differs at the two settings.

Soltek claims a first-place finish at 1024x768, followed by the nForce4 and K8T800 Pro boards, respectively. There's not a whole lot of difference between the three platforms, though, as they all verge on 100 frames per second.

The old K8T800 Pro takes the lead at 1600x1200, while Soltek's board falls to last place.
