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!

Even at 2560x1600, the worst scoring cards still produce decent frame rates in Left 4 Dead. The GTX295 scored strongly, while the 5870 and 4870x2 chased behind. As the resolution grew, the 5-series cards got left in the dust by the dual-GPU cards, and overclocking brought the 5850 to the level of the 5870.
