How much of an upgrade have I made?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This was an cheap upgrade for 30 euro 2nd hand but new.

My old card was a 7900 GTO 512MB (+- 10% difference 7900 GTX)

New card HD 6570 2048 MB

I needed a new one since that one was artefacting all over after some time.

Now Red Alert 3 is fully playable @ 1680x1050 (my monitor's max res)
Max Details except disable shadows if I want to have constant 30 fps.

Other specs;(E6400 @ 2,57 ghz + 2gb ddr2 667 mhz)

So im satisfied about that, league of legends now runs @ full detail 45 fpsish.

Crysis 2 however a bit disappointed, 40 fps @ 1280x1024 all on high (which is actually low lol) When I boost it to extreme or ultra I get like 10-15 fps.
I almost thought my old card would perform better on this game.
Cuz I saw the memory bandwith was only 25-30 GB/s ish which is quite low, My geforce 7900 gto has more bandwith I think.
