Pow3rtr1p's Upgrading Adventure

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
So, as my sig says, I just purchased an Opty 165 and an x1950PRO. Well, now I'm going to see just how well they will perform compared to my current rig.

I will be running the latest Aquamark, 3dMark 05, 3DMark 06, and HL2 benchmark at various visual levels.

Will report back with benchies soon.

My new card and CPU won't be here for a few days, but I will post both stock benchmarks and my initial overclocked benchies, as well.

And to avoid confusion on my current rig, I have my CPU overclocked like it says in my profile, and no video card overclock.

Well it will be a good upgrade IMO. Should help alot system wide having that CPU.

Do you know if AMD still makes them btw OPty 165?
post #6 of 39
Not making them?? They must be still making them as newegg is OOS and says availability by 10/27. Also when you OC them you OC both cores right ?? Like if I get a good stepping I could have 2 3ghz cores running??
That would be so killer for my upgrade to not only be double the core but even run faster than what I have now. WOOOT!!!

Benches for Current Rig (Check sig for specs):

3DMark 05: 3628
3DMark 06: 1009
Half Life 2, 1600 x 1200, High Detail, no AA or AF, no HDR: 62 FPS
Half Life 2, 1600 x 1200, High Detail, 4x AA, 4x AF, Full HDR: 42 FPS
Half Life 2, 1600 x 1200, High Detail, 6x AA, 16x AF, Full HDR: 40 FPS

I was surprised how little maxing out AA and AF had over only doing some of each. So, no the next step is to wait for the Opty and the x1950PRO and see how much they improve my scores.

Well i just wondered as of the very limited supply. But thats due to AMD slowing the supply as i heard that a while ago.

Agreed. I get 3400 with my mildly overclocked 7600GT ...Definitely something not quite right.
