Dirt 2

Dirt 2 is a DirectX 11 game and looks pretty good, especially if you use Eyefinity multi-display configurations. Unfortunately, we don’t have three monitors to test our Club3D HD 5850 Overclocked Edition, but we can confirm that 2560x1600 will allow for some nice gaming. In fact, Club3D’s HD 5850 Overclocked Edition scores 50fps. Compared to the reference HD 5850 card, Club3D’s HD 5850 Overclocked Edition scores about 9% higher.
