I got Just Cause 2 and Mafia 2 with my graphics card purchase. Are either of those good for testing my computers?

Just Cause 2 is awesome and can really push a card. Mafia II as well.

both are good as games, and benchmarks too

Awesome thanks for the replies. I'll have to run the two games by my friends and see which they want to grab first. One doesn't have that good of a machine so I'm not sure which would be best for him. Don't want to leave him stuck playing Rift.

Give the original crysis a try, awesome gfx and your 560 should do pretty well @ VGH. For reference, my 570 gives me 40fps @ 1080p @ VH no AA and it looks and plays great

to all the people that are saying that crysis 2 sucks:
lemme get some things off my chest:

CRYSIS 2 DEMO WAS A CONSOLE PORT!!! THE DEVS DIDNT HAVE A PC DEMO IN MIND AT FIRST AND HASTILY PORTED THE CONSOLE DEMO TO PC! IT IS NOT FINAL IN ANY WAY! EVEN IF THE FINAL GAME IS A PORT, JUST LOOK AT BC2. IT WAS A PORT. DO PPL COMPLAIN? NO? SO WHY COMPLAIN ABOUT CRYSIS 2????
CRYSIS 2 HAS THE BEST GRAPHICS OF ANY DX9 GAME OUT THERE AND LOOKS BETTER THAN VANILLA CRYSIS.
THE MULTIPLAYER MAY HAVE VEHICLES DUE TO THE CONTROL OPTION FOR VEHICLES.
HAVE YOU ALL FORGOTEN ABOUT THE SINGLE PLAYER? HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN ABOUT MODS AND SANDBOX 3?
QUIT *****ING ABOUT IT NOT HAVING DX11 AT LAUNCH! WOULD IT HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE? NO!
STOP JUDGING A GAME THAT HASNT BEEN RELEASED YET AND USING AN INCOMPLETE BETA AND A RUSHED DEMO AS A BASIS FOR SAYING THAT IT SUCKS! WAIT FOR THE REAL GAME!!! JESUS!

im keeping my pre order for crysis 2 and i will laugh at all the people that cancelled their pre order when it turns out to be an amazing game.
/rant


BTW JC2, crysis 1, and metro are great games to bench on and play since they are both super fun

Homefront will have the better storyline, probably even has better game-play elements aswell.

Crysis 2 has a better storyline, better graphics, and a more compact and action fueled multiplayer. I have heard that the SP campaign for homefront is 4-5 hours, whereas Crysis 2 has been mentioned as 12 hours. Crysis 2 seems to be the better option. Don't listen to the people that say the game has been 'consolised'. Consolised or not, the game is still very good.

If Crysis 2 has the better story-line than HomeFront must really suck.

Cool it with the caps. People very much so complain about BC2 being a console port.

Homefront is pretty awesome. I had it preloaded on steam and started playing at 12:01...ended play at 1:30ish.

My only complaint is I feel like the normal walk speed is too slow and the sprint isn't much better. Best compliment to the game is that it feels real; you constantly run out of ammo and simply pick up the korean's weapons and drop them as soon as they run out as well.

Only played SP but it was awesome
