Far Cry 2 was the included game and I thought I would give some perspective on the game. The GeForce GTX 280 played the game all the way throughout without problems at the maximum resolution of the monitor I use for testing video cards. The game was silky smooth with little problem even with the maximum resolution and setting.

Mirror's Edge is one of those game changing games with full use of PhysX effects throughout the game. While systems with other video cards can do the effects on the CPU, NVIDIA cards are the only ones that can play the game the way it was meant to be played with. The game plays extremely well on the GTX 285 Black Edition with all of the PhysX effects fully activated. The game is full of areas where debris is blown around by the wind or glass shatters on bullet impact. The game is the first to fully realize the PhysX software from a major company.

Call OF Duty World at War is the 5th title in the COD franchise. Utilizing DirectX 9.0C graphics, the game takes place in the PTO (Pacific Theater of Operations) in World War II. The game played flawlessly on the GTX 285 Black Edition with all resolutions and anti-aliasing settings fully playable. COD:WAW is a fun game that was released late last year and continues to have traction among first person shooter fans worldwide.
