Left 4 Dead 2 (DirectX 9)
This co-operative action horror FPS takes you and your friends through the cities, swamps and cemeteries of the Deep South, from Savannah to New Orleans across five expansive campaigns.
You’ll play as one of four new survivors armed with a wide and devastating array of classic and upgraded weapons. In addition to firearms, you’ll also get a chance to take out some aggression on infected with a variety of carnage-creating melee weapons, from chainsaws to axes and even the deadly frying pan.
You’ll be putting these weapons to the test against (or playing as in Versus) three horrific and formidable new Special Infected. You’ll also encounter five new “uncommon” common infected, including the terrifying Mudmen.
Left 4 Dead 2 Test Settings
Left 4 Dead 2 is another DX9 title across all the cards here and while we definitely have performance advantages using the newer cards, you cannot deny the fact that the 9800 GTX 512MB card can still provide a GREAT gaming experience. An average frame rate of 71.8 and a minimum of 40 FPS is quite good for a 1920×1200 resolution.
