I just upgraded to a 6970, and I wanted to put it to good use. The games I have are Crysis Warhead, GTA IV, S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of Pripyat, and Battlefield Bad Company 2. I can play all of them maxed out at 1920x1200. I want to by another game or two that would make good use of this new card. What other good games would really stress the card?
On a side note, is there anyway to check if Pripyat or BFBC2 are actually running in DX11 mode? I installed the games while I had my old video card in and there are no settings in the game about DX version.
In Pripyat you go to the settings menu and their should be a drop down bar that says static lighting and dynamic lighting, etc. for BC2 i have no clue. and Metro 2033 might stress your Card and its a good game (plus its Dx11)
Thanks for letting me know about Pripyat. I think I found how to change BC2 in the config file. I still don't anyway to confirm it.
I almost bought Metro 2033 before, so I may get it now with my new card. I remember reading good things about it, but I also read that it involved a lot of wandering around. I'm already having a hard time getting into Pripyat since there is so much wandering involved, so I don't know. I liked the sound of Civilization V, but I don't know if it will stress the card. I'll try the Hunter game suggested.
