Half-Life 2: Episode One
Half-Life 2: Episode One supports FSAA and resolutions up to 1920x1200, but the GeForce 7600 GT only allows playing in resolutions up to 1280x1024 with comfort. The GV-NX76T256D-RH can be overclocked to deliver enough speed to play in 1600x1200 without FSAA or in 1280x1024 with 4x FSAA. The Radeon X1800 XL delivers as much performance, but it consumes more power, needs an additional power connection, and produces more noise whereas the Gigabyte card is absolutely noiseless.
Although Prey runs on a modernized engine from Doom 3 and has inherited all of the latter’s key features, it offers better-quality and more detailed visuals, which makes it more difficult for the graphics subsystem. We could only achieve an acceptable speed in 1280x1024 by overclocking our Gigabyte GV-NX76T256D-RH. There’s no talking about the higher resolutions or full-screen antialiasing. You need a graphics card at least one class higher than the one the GeForce 7600 belongs to.
