  1. So why are you posting 3D benchies then? this what i don't understand, thread you started is all about your quad CPU :confused:
  2. 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....
  3. 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!
  4. 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?

  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  9. 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
  12. 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!!
  13. 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!!
  14. Hmm well I fior one is not all that happy with my 8800, don't get me wrong its is a powerful card, but its hard for me to get all my games to run @ high resolutions, don't know if its a driver issue or lack of support from games, I know having widescreen don't help, but my 1900XT did not suffer like this, E.g C&C ZH will only run @ 1152 X 864, but with the 1900XT 1440 X 900 or something close to that was possible, I am relying on WS hacks @ the moment to be able to play BF2 & 2142, R6, to play @ 1680 X 1050, COD2 and Oblivion seem to run fine though!

  16. Nope you’re right, but with the ATI 1900 XT I could @ least do 1280 X 1024, so what I am saying is what ever the worse case scenario was with the 8800, my 1900 could always do higher resolutions, which leaves me gutted! I hope that new patches or drivers put this right, I have not heard of anyone else complain about this so seems to be just me! Sucks :sad: Not sure I follow:confused:
  17. Ok you may have missed my point here, but the ATI is new generation hardware made with DX10 in mind, as is the 8800 cards, and a sweet as they are unfortunately the cant seem to support the resolutions in some of my games as the 1900 XT I had before it could, E.g. in C&C ZH with the ATi card I could do 1440 X 900, now with the 8800 I can only do 1152 X 864, this is also the case with BF2 & 2142, I have to use a WS hack to get them to run @ 1680 X 1050, so I am hoping this is to do with the drivers not being mature and I was guessing that this might be the same scenario @ the benches for the R600 in this thread!
  18. May be for the same reason that all the games I have won't give you the choice to go above X8 AA, yes you can force it via the Nvidia control panel and thru ATI CCC, but who is to say it was used ETC, don't see much point in that link full stop, in time we will know how good it is!
  19. This game has a poor engine console and even on my system it only get 20 to 60 FPS @ 1680 X 1050 with Avg FPS around 30 to 35! with all that said it not the sort of game thats needs high FPS!
  20. The engine in this games suck, which dont help the FPS!
  21. Its not Bad thats for sure, and you need to read the rules and make a sig or you will get banned very soon M8
  22. I have looked @ this link http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showpost.p...5&postcount=190 to see what runs and what don't and for some reason there are things on there that I can’t get to work, like 3d/05/06 and BF2 etc, would this have anything to do with using an 8800GTS? I am using driver version 100.30 from http://www.guru3d.com/, I have also followed the other instructions with success /set work for me not –set
  23. I have had this one every time, even after disabling it in the CP it still does it, so now i just have to put up with a screen saver or just switch my monitors off!
