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.

The Zotac GeForce GT 240 AMP! Edition performed relatively well in Left 4 Dead. While it couldn't keep pace with the more expensive cards, it did put up playable framerates at 1680x1050 and 1920x1200. And had we lowered the image quality settings, 2560x1600 could have been a possibility as well.
