Testing:

BioShock is one of the creepier games you can play. The building of a perfect Utopian society undersea gone horribly wrong. Its inhabitants driven mad with the introduction of tonics and genetic modifications. Now Rapture is just a shadow of its former glory with little girls looting the dead of what little they have left while being shadowed by guardians known as "Big Daddies" It is a demanding game that will make your hardware scream for mercy. This First Person Shooter allows for an infinite number of weapons and modifications to provide a unique experience each time it is played. The environment as well as the story line will wrap you up for hours on end.

With BioShock the tables finally turned - at least until the latter three resolutions. Each increase in resolution gave the HD 5870 more distance between it and the others. The Nvidia GTX 285 and 275 both put up a decent fight in the lower resolutions, even beating the stock XFX HD 5870 by 15 FPS and the overclocked XFX HD 5870 by 3 FPS. With all settings set to maximum the game is still easily playable.
