    Quad Core System Advice

    So why are you posting 3D benchies then? this what i don't understand, thread you started is all about your quad CPU :confused:

    Quad Core System Advice

    I agree, but we all no what the 8800's can do, and like you say CPU test has little inpact on the score which makes me wonder why the 3D benchies in the first place, and kinda think that the main reseaon for the thread was about the Quad CPU and I was then intrested to see what inpact it had in 3D bench mark compared to dual core and single core's, I also get the impression that the reason for buying the QX6850 over the Q6600 was to be able to inprove game play in "FEAR, Oblivion, Dark Messiah and other games" mind you not sure what benifit fear would have so i found it odd that no CPU test was completed thats all, anyway....

    Building a new rig. Much input needed.

    First off, there are two versions of the 8800GTS 320mb and 640MB, which one to get depends on usage, but the 640MB one would be more long term investment i would think. Second, C2D is the only way to go when building new M8 simple as, they OC much better with very little effort with the right MoBo, im no expert @ OC'ing but even I hit 3.6 with ease, Not that there is anything wrong with AM2, but it just cant compete with the C2D at most things, not just games!

    Quad Core System Advice

    3DMark Score (3DMarks) 18024 (My score) 21039 (yours) CPU Score (CPUMarks) 12756 (My score) Not enough CPU tests run ? Why did you not run any CPU test? and maybe 3D/06 would be a more intresting benchie with the Q core?

    8800 GTS or GTX; That is the question

    The GTS will do you fine M8, to many people spend more than the need just for the high bench mark score they crave, my system is 7 months old now at it does everything that I need it to do, and I hope it will in the future, not a lot of games that will trouble the GTS, tbh I have played about with resolutions and eye candy, and a lot of the time I fail to notice any improvements good or bad, only oblivion challenges my system so far!

    Just got 8800gts xxx not impressed

    Agreed, too many people here worry more about benchmarks than the games you play, at the end of the day when you’re immersed in the game you don't get time to notice how wonderful the graphics look, but that could just be me of coarse, what ever your upgrade is it should be for the better right, and benchmarks don’t always show it, when I changed from an 1900XT to the 8800GTS and run a benchmark, I was not that impressed, in fact was gutted that I paid all that money just for a few hundred points more, but in real games it was a much more rewarding!

    8800GTS vs. 8800GTX

    with a 24 inch moniter then the GTX would be the better choice, but that said, it still depends on what games you play, im happy with the performance of the GTS and it OC very well too, as for the cpu being a bottle neck? it wont play a big part in FPS @ high res no matter what cpu you have, C2D or AMD nothing in it at all, so get the best you can afford for long term enjoyment
  8. Can the dell 24 WS do 1080P, every time i try it tells me Im out of range! using it with my XBOX 360 and trying to do 1080P, it will display 1080i ok but not 1080P, any help welcomed!

    8800GTX - Why won't it get along with a 6600GT?

    It might have something to do with the fact that they require two different drivers, that might not get along!
  10. Forced you to do what? OC ur CPU to 3789 MHz just so you could get 125 points more than me? how sad! took you long enough!
  11. LOL, take your finger off the keyboard! Thx, lol

    Sli

    Doh!
  13. That would be so nice.........

    AA+HDR on NVIDIA

    Won't that be down to the game its self? E.g Oblivion does not allow this, don't know if it can be forced? but farcry is the only game I know of that does both AA and HDR, but I don't have loads of games!!
  15. I can OC my GTS to 635 and I have way more stuff than you seem to have in your sig, and that’s with my CPU @ 3.6, I would be more inclined to believe that you have reach your MAX OC, not all cards are the same, I can't get past 635 whilst others have and can, drop down the OC on the CPU first, then try the OC on the card, then start your CPU OC again, Its not likely to be the PSU M8, unless its broken!!
