Half-Life 2 – Canals09

Our second HL2 run through takes place in the Canals portion of the game where there are a lot of water reflections to deal with.  Here’s a typical scene from our run through:

This level of HL2 is much more GPU intense and as such the 7800 GTX 512 MB has a better lead over the standard 7800 GTX.  It matches perfectly with the X1800 XT in this case too.
