It is an old card running a pretty modern game. Those cards were the first DX9 cards on the market, so the fact that it can run a DX9 game with good results is decent.

Oh I missed that it was an ATI 9800 Pro.

I was using a 7800GTX 512 up until this year when I finally moved to a GTX 275 and that old card was keeping up fine to be honest.
