This i7 really, really, woke up these GPUs over my FX-8120 @ 4.4 GHz and my Phenom II X4 @ 3.4 GHz. :lol:

 

TIME FOR SKYRIM. :D

 

Can you provide a compare and contrast of your benchmarks? Did you take any advice from my terrible terrible debate thread when you switched to intel :lol: ?

What advice? :lol: I've had this CPU for a while now.

 

FX-8120 @ 4.4 GHz: http://3dmark.com/3dmv/3595598

Jane Nash = 68.74 FPS

New Calico = 78.74 FPS

 

 

Phenom II X4 @ 3.4 GHz: http://3dmark.com/3dmv/3599061

Jane Nash = 71.44 FPS

New Calico = 80.35 FPS

 

 

Note that the Phenom II is actually faster than the 8120...even with a 1 GHz disadvantage. :lol:

 

 

2600K @ 4.8 GHz: http://3dmark.com/3dmv/3599061

Jane Nash = 96.04 FPS

New Calico = 100.71 FPS

 

 

 

It's a bit of a difference when you're extremely CPU constrained. Quadfire LOVES CPU speed apparently. :lol: OC'ing this CPU wasn't even fun though. I just set the maximum voltage I was comfortable with, set the wattage/amperage limits at 200, and cranked the turbo multiplier up to 48. That's it. :lol:

I'd say that isn't too hot a deal anymore...maybe $100 or $110. If you can talk em down to $120 maybe. :thumbsup:

 

If you can handle the heat, deal with troubles of xfire and 100 other things then yea -- I used to run one of the ones in Waco's rig. lol.

Told you that 3.4ghz Phenom was bottlenecking those 4870X2s :ph34r:.

 

Even today they are pretty beastly cards - I think they were the longest I've ever spent on one series of graphics card without upgrading.

My favourite bit about you score Waco

 

STOP!

Your Score is Equal or Better Compared to Similar Systems.

PC Health Check has detected other potential problems.

 

:lol: since when was having a score that was better the other PCs become a problem...

 

However what's up with your ram speeds, dimms 1 and 4 are slower than 2 and 3
