Performance in Simulators
Colin McRae: Dirt 2
This game uses DirectX 11 but can run under Windows 7 on DirectX 10/10.1 graphics cards without hardware tessellation.
The modest GeForce GT 240 is just as good as the Radeon HD 5750 with all its advanced capabilities. The game is playable at very resolution up to 1680x1050. Judging by the results of the GeForce GTS 250, the game engine prefers Nvidia’s GPUs.

We use the in-game benchmarking tools that do not allow to measure the bottom frame rate. We also enable DirectX 10.1 support for ATI’s solutions.
Nvidia is traditionally strong in this game, and the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 outperforms the Radeon HD 5750 even at the reference frequencies. Its DirectX 10.1 support helps it beat the GeForce 9600 GT, too. We guess you should limit yourself to 1280x1024 in this game as the control accuracy worsens on GeForce GT 240-class cards in the higher display modes.
