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.

Although this is a 'made for Nvidia' game, the Toxic and Vapor-X HD 4890s put in a respectable performance. At the maximum in-game settings, the game play was fluid and went without a hitch. Overclocking netted gains for both cards and increased the level of play across the board still falling short of the performance of the GTX 260 and up.
