I played Shadowrun which is more powerful than Halo and that worked fine too.
I'm looking for a better video card and was thinking of getting a Direct X11 capable card. I don't know when Nvida is releasing its budget direct X11 cards so I wouldn't know when should fall on the ATI cards. I know my 8600GT runs around 47w and the 5670 runs about 61w. If I got the 5570 which runs at 43w I would be getting more efficient video card. I have also noticed that you can get a 4670 at a discounted price.
