More features or more performance, which is better for Just Cause 2?
If you are a fan of a little 3rd person mayhem then Just Cause 2 has probably been on your radar for a bit. A game that shows off the maturity of the DX10 engine with native support for most of nVIDIA and AMD’s anti-aliasing features which comes in handy when you consider that most terrain is deformable. That means that the question in your mind is not whether to pick up the game or not, but which card is your better choice to get the most out of the games visuals. [H]ard|OCP pits the GTX480 and 470 against the HD5870 and 5750 to see not only which gives the best performance, but also to what the nVIDIA only GPU water physics and Bokeh filter for simulating depth of field add to the game.
