Do better HDD's improve Benchmarks? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
Well it always seems that the this thing is really underperforming and I cant figure it out. I did a bench in Just cause 2 on concrete jungle and got an avg of 47.6FPS at all the highest settings but with AA at 4 only. this was done on one monitor at 1920x1080. Seems like it should of been over 60fps with vsync off.

I dont think a hard drive change even to an ssd is going to give you a 20%+ bump in fps. I dont have Just Cause 2 or i would test my frames in it for you.

Well what I am trying to figure out is if my system is performing like it should be, and if not where to start with fixing it. It cant be my PSU, or RAM. The mobo should be fine so that leaves the CPU and GPU.

At your resolution with that card and a good set up they are only 5 frames higher than you in that bench and thats with no AA and 16 Af

when they have 4aa and 16af they are actually a few frames lower than you.

so i think you are doing just fine

Not bad I guess. This is there test rig specs. Not sure if it is better than mine or not. The 965 is a good CPU I know.

•Intel Core i7-965 processor (3.2GHz: 133MHz x 24)

•Asus P6T V2 motherboard (Intel X58 Express with three PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots)

•3x 2GB Corsair TR3X6G1333C9 memory modules (operating in dual channel at DDR3 1,600MHz 9-9-9-24-1T)

•Corsair X128 120GB SSD running v1 firmware

•Corsair HX1000W PSU


I am going to go pick up another 6870 tonight and try it out alone to see if it works any better, and also with crossfire to see if my eyefinity performance improves enough to make it worth keeping.

•Windows 7 Home Premium x64

•Antec Twelve Hundred Chassis
