Yes i did. You have it paired with a GTX 460. The GTX 660 has alot more power. This is whats hurting your frame rates, not your CPU.

I didn't complain about my frame rates...

I play Battlefield 3 at half High half Ultra, 2X AA and medium deferred AA on multiplayer and get 40-100 FPS on 64 player conquest maps, no complaints eh

You missed the point. Your limit is not your CPU, it is your GPU. Therefore you cannot say just how well your CPU performs as your GPU is what bottlenecks your machine. I have now seen first hand proof of this. The GTX 660 has more GPU power and this chip doesnt bottleneck it.

I think you missed HIS point.

Anywho try planetside 2 if you really want to test that CPU. 40 fps mins on ac3 is about avg, albeit good for the setup

Not gonna lie, this OP really has a knack for not reading anything I say.


I'm not bottlenecked because I can run everything on max at above 40-50FPS. So it's fairly obvious the chip is good.

Obviously my GPU isn't the best, but that doesn't make it bad. The only thing really holding it back is the VRAM - when I get settings maxed in most games at 1600x900 the VRAM usage gets up to 980-1000MB and if it tips over 1024MB, huge lag spike. So I'm gonna replace it with a 7870 soon, but that's offtopic

My Vram doesn't seem to hold me back much, I just can't use full AA in some games like BF3, only like 2x AA to keep 60FPS.

Mhm, I didn't think it'd matter at 1600x900 but I hit the 980MB area more often than I should. It's such a pity too, because when I'm not at VRAM cap I can run any game maxed out with amazing frame rates :/

1gb v-ram sucks IMO

BF3 @ 1080 FXAA on high No MSAA (ram killer) everything on Ultra but Textures (needs to be on high) and it will stay under 1gb. Also make sure to disable Desktop Composition. Ultra Textures will Overload the V-ram thats for sure. The GTX465 in my HTPC needs these settings, Have it OCed @ 850 and gets a AVG of around 45-60fps overall not bad for that chip. My GTX470s can run everything on ultra but still no MSAA, even 2x will load up V-Ram on most maps and just cause frame drops Still get a Nice 90-110fps AVG though.
