3D Mark 01 = 3619
3D Mark 05 = 1167 (05 run a while after 01. No longer have 01)
What other benchmarks should i run if you need more?
I have a GeForce 6200SE TurboCache 256Mb (PCI-E) and a Pentium 4 HT 650 3.4Ghz CPU, with 1Gb PC3200 Dual Channel RAM.
With the tests in 3D Mark 05 None run quicker than 5 Fps. I cant figure out why as I can play BF2 at all Medium settings no AA or AF at 40 Fps avg.
Any AA on my card makes games unplayably slow.
Why the hell does it work so crap!? i know this card is bottom of the 6 series, but come on! benchmarks should be better considering to my BF2 performance.
My card is currently OC'ed at 405/615 (using coolbits and 'set to optimal') I've OC'ed to 420/640 but i kept getting a BSOD saying INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR whereas running at stock 350/500 its fine. I have yet to see if my current OC gives me the same problem.
I'm hoping to get a Gigabyte 7800GTX 256Mb when i get another job. I recently lost my job, and my parents aren't too happy, so ic ant spend ne money.
ANY help as to why my card runs like **** would be helpful. thanks guys.
EDIT/// that 7800GTX might just do the trick! BTW the 256MB in the 6200SE TurboCache name is misleading, it means it will use 256MB if your precious system ram, leaving only 768MB for games/benchmarks whatever. That is why you are doing so horrible (no offense) in benches, I mean your CPU is 400MHz faster than mine and I get over 4x your score in 3D Mark 05 and my 03 score is like 22,000!
EDIT: hopefully i can spend some of my money at christmas and get one. I was going to buy one from www.chillblast.com. I've heard nothing but goood things about this site, and i have already had lots of help from there when i was goping to buy a new mobo. Im gonna look up more about the Gigabyte card before i buy it.
I was running my GPU overclocked, but after 1.5 hours of BF2: SF it hits 70C and crashes the game. weird. used to go upto 90C np b4 i installed my intake fan.
Some people think that the X2 is a little expensive for its performance...
I call 2 smp Opty 254's for less than $500 on s939 a fair deal

Get this one:
One man, and a crate of puppets.
i'd say anything you can get your hands on that has a rating higher than 6200 including a radeon x800 GTO would be much much better. i'm all gung-ho about the x800GTOs since they're cheap and perform really well.... but the 7800GT is also pretty nice.
Any of those will be better than that 6200. Choose whatever your budget allows and remember the price to performace ratio is better with the 7800GT than the GTX. Happy card hunting!
My current PSU came with my computer (Fujitsu-Siemens). 350W, and even my 6200 needs 300W minimum. What kinda power PSU will i need for a 7800GTX? Also what kinda of price would it be for an SLI certified PSU? I would like an SLI capable PSU for when i go dual GPU's. when not if
Once i got a job again all my money is going on my PC till it is how i like it.
Everntually, i want a new case & mobo with 2 PCI-E, ill then need to buy windows to install with the new mobo, a new desk, coz a bigger case wont fit under this 1. last thing on the list. 5.1 surround sound and a bigger monitor. current 1 is 17" and is ok, but a bigger 1 would complete the who;e thing.
Money really isn't a problem, but within reason. i would spend £500 on a GPU but nothing much over that.
Because i cant get a new GPU till im earning, i either spend a weeks wages on a 6600, 2 weeks wages on a 6800, or 3-4 weeks wages on a 7800GTX.
Bring on the 7 series
EDIT: I set my GPU back to normal clock speeds, and it runs 60C and is nice and stable. no OC for me.
EDIT: I've never played with an ATI, only nVidia, so i wont be buying an ATI. i wanna stick with what i know.
