Picking up where Serious Sam: Second Encounter left off, Sam has rocketed off towards the conquered planet of Sirius, the new home of the notorious Mental. While en route, the Great Wizards Council of the nearly eradicated Sirian civilization telepathically contacts Sam to aid him in his quest to destroy Mental and help restore Sirius. He is then sent on a quest to find the fragments of a mystical medallion scattered throughout the galaxy that will bestow Sam with the power to defeat Mental.

 

While Serious Sam 2 is not one of the most intensive games in our benchmark suite, we can stress the system by enabling HDR.

 

 

Serious Sam 2 again shows the PowerColor X1300PRO Bravo coming back into the picture but even though it does have DDR3, it clearly is unable to catch the 7300GT cards sporting the same, faster memory. Playing SS2 with HDR isn't going to be possible at 1600 x 1200 but with a bit more fiddling around in the options you're going to be able to play at 1024 x 768 without any major issues.
