16x vs 8x PCI-E bandwith - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well im currently unemployed so i built this system in 2010 when i had money after school. I did buy some stuff that was already out dated but my budget was only 1500 for everything, considering i over payed on ram the first time around Its lasted quite some time and iam able to get 40-60 FPS on BF3 at all high presets, but yes next time i upgrade i will get the fastest single GPU card, if its worth the money... Ive only ever had nvidia once when i had a HP computer i slapped a geforce 9600 in there, I havent had any problems with my amd card nor has my brother so we will see what i get next smile.gif


System specs:
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Motherboard: M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
Graphics: HIS HD5850
Ram: 2x4GB PC3 16000 2000mhz Patriot memory
Primary Boot: Patriot Pyro 60GB SSD
Storage Drive: WD caviar blue 500GB
Case: CoolerMaster HAF X


I still can't figure out where forum signature is frown.gif I want to have my specs in there

I ran 2 6950's at 16x 16x and then again at 8x 8x and the point difference in vantage and 11 were less than 5pts.

Top right of this page you should see your username. Click that. On the new page scroll all the way to the bottom and you should see "my rigs".
