High Quality AA and AF

 

Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren't struggling before they will start to now.

 

Far Cry 2

With only a single card installed, getting Far Cry 2 to play nicely at these settings just isn't going to happen.

 

World In Conflict

While the HD 5870 manages to just be over that 30 FPS minimum, we can see the HD 5850 is just behind it. Maybe move to 2x AA or drop the AF and we can be over it.

 

Left 4 Dead

With no minimum we want to see an average of 60 FPS or better. As you can see above, we have that, so it's looking pretty good for Left 4 Dead gamers who are interested in playing the game at high details.
