MSI NX8500GT-TD256E Geforce 8500GT Videocard Review

MSI NX8500GT-TD256E Geforce 8500GT Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Even if you're only a casual gamer, a DirectX 10 videocard gives you access to a lot of the eyecandy in the latest game titles, and that's not always so with a DirectX 9.0C videocard.

Videocard Benchmarks: FEAR

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

FEAR is a tough game but framerates at 1024x768 without Soft Shadows has decent framerates. Finally a low cost videocard that isn't bad at low resolution gaming. So where does all this leave us?
