In terms of gaming on the XFX GeForce GT 240 512MB DDR5 HDMI card, the card is designed to play games with DirectX 10.1 in mind. One of the first games I tried out on the new card was Resident Evil 5. While the game uses DirectX 9.0 graphics with some improvements for DX10.0, the graphics are not all that different. The game plays well on the GT 240 from XFX, with playable frame rates at 1920x1200 resolution.

James Cameron is the director of such famed movies as the Terminator series and many others too numerous to name here. His latest action movie, Avatar is the basis for a computer game of the same name. The GeForce GT 240 plays the game ok, with frame rates of the high teens on the GT 240 with 1920x1200 4x FSAA and 16x AF. The game is not fast paced and therefore the frame rate is acceptable when played at 1280x1024.

Batman Arkham Asylum is the latest PhysX supporting game a feature this card supports. This game shows effects like moving curtains in the Asylum that are not present in the non-PhysX version of the game. Further, there are areas where the smoke in the game is thicker and reacts to character actions that are not present on the game without a NVIDIA card.

Left 4 Dead was one of the best games of 2008. Valve recently released the sequel to the game: Left 4 Dead 2 for the PC on Steam. The game features a new cast of characters in the same world as L4D. Featuring new enemies’ new locales and more, Left 4 Dead 2 improves the game. The GeForce GT 240 plays this game with aplomb able to play at 1920x1200 with little hiccups in the frame rate. While the game is graphically similar to the first, the fact that a mainstream card can play this game at that resolution comfortably is awesome.
