Testing:

In Dead Space, as part of the crew of the USG Kellion you are headed on a repair mission to repair a ship in distress. Things go from bad to worse, starting with the crash landing and seemingly silent and "dead" ship, the USG Ishimuru. Offering a non-traditional over the shoulder viewing angle, the game gets right into the action as soon as the ventilation systems are activated. From there things get worse with the appearance of the Necromorphs. Survival now becomes a primary concern for the primary character Isaac Clarke. Survive and you may find the loved one that was aboard the Ishimuru.

If there ever was a game that favored nVidia cards, Dead Space is it. The 2GB card delivers better performance than the 1GB model across all four resolutions. The gameplay was fluid and did not hiccup at all through the testing. The additional 1GB of memory paid dividends in Dead Space. Even though the FPS delivered is easily playable, even nVidia's GTX 260 trumps the 2GB Vapor-X.
