Good game for showing off graphics?

Saw a good buy on a card at Fry's so went ahead and upgraded from an HD 5770 to an HD 7870.


What's a good recent game that you guys would say would "show off" the graphics? I have the Witchers 1 and 2, played one and heard good things about 2 but haven't gotten into it yet, and Far Cry 3.

Far Cry 3 is a looker, for sure. The Crysis games often go on sale rather cheap. I may even have a spare Origin key, not sure, for Crysis 2.

Yeah, I found it in my humble bundle list, I'll PM it to you, you can try it out. I'd recommend BlackFire's Mod 2 2.0 and MaldoHD 4.0. Together. They're easy enough to find and put the 7870 through its paces quite nicely.

MaldoHD is textures, pretty much, and BlackFire is lighting and other effects tweaks.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Ok cool....I've got a few of those already, just haven't died into them yet. And yeah Crysis is a big known one...although with a less then desirable framerate I was able to play one and two on that card I had.....will hold out to try 3 later.

The Metro and Stalker games I haven't gotten to see much at all and looked pretty cool, so will be doing those after looking through what I have already.

Yeah Just Cause 2 ran pretty good on last card.....although I can also fully mod out my GTA IV and Episodes stuff with cars and all the weather effects now too....can't wait till 5 makes it to pc now....

Thanks for the answers~

I've always wanted to mod out GTA IV with Icehance but have been too lazy to look into it. Speaking off mods, how about that Skyrim all modded out? Also, another game for the graphic showcase list... Bioshock: Infinite.

Good calls on both of those, I do have Skyrim but haven't gotten into all the mods yet so still looking through those. I've def seen vids of some mods I liked on it, especially water ones...like crazy realistic looking...just need to sort through what is what.

And bioshock I kind of already was "done with" but may check it out later.
