Mafia II is a third-person action-adventure video game, the sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. It is developed by 2K Czech, previously known as Illusion Softworks, and is published by 2K Games. The game is set from 1943 to 1951 in Empire Bay (the name is a reference to New York's state nickname "The Empire State"), a fictional city based on San Francisco and New York City, with influences from Chicago and Detroit. The game features a completely open-ended game map of 10 square miles. No restrictions are included from the start of the game. There are around 50 vehicles in the game, as well as licensed music from the era.




Looking at Mafia II, we get a good idea of how the $599 PC is going to perform on a lot of games that offer good graphics. You can see at 1680 x 1050 we managed to get that 60 FPS we aim for and when overclocked we managed to jump ahead a further 5 FPS, making sure our game would be smooth.


You could get away with gaming at 1920 x 1200 if you wanted to drop the quality, but the chances are you're going to have a lower resolution monitor if your budget is around this for a PC.
