BlackSite runs with the UT3 Engine in DirectX 10 mode; the Geforce 6800 GT and 7950 GT only support DirectX 9. The performance of the two graphics cards is not enough to produce a sufficiently high frame rate to enable fluid animations at 1280x1024 pixels. The new graphics cards with Geforce 8 and 9 need at least 2.4 GHz in order to achieve proper 3D performance.
