Like we've seen in our last few games, we get a nice boost in performance from our overclocked Sapphire HD 6970 Dual Fan here and we manage to move away from that 60 FPS average that we're near to at 1920 x 1200 with the stock HD 6970. Moving to 2560 x 1600, though, while we see the card come out ahead, the FPS is below a level we would consider playable.
