Testing:

Left 4 Dead is a new release from Valve that leaves you as part of a group of survivors in a world where an infection has rapidly turned the populace into a zombie horde. You goal is to make it to a rescue point, all the while fighting what seems like overwhelming odds. Along the way there are safe houses where you can replenish your weapons and health. The movie 'I Am Legend' comes to mind to set the stage for this game. But unlike the movie, there are four characters and not just a lone gun and his faithful companion. The horde is not at all like the typical slow walking, foot shuffling zombie. These zombies are quick and work with the pack mentality. Your job: survival!

The performance differential between the Toxic and Nvidia GTX 275 cards decreases at 1920x1200 and by 2560x1600 the performance is identical. The Vapor-X is just a few fps behind both stock and overclocked. Not that it is a bad thing, as the gameplay is easily well above what would be considered playable.
