post #41 of 6756
so i got it today (evga gtx 660 ftw signature 2) and installed it, but i am quite confused, i get like twice the fps at maxed settings
skyrim is ok 45-60fps maxed out. tough i am not using any enb mods for now.
25-45fps on ultra in bf3, before 10-15fps (surely bottlenecked by c2d e7500 @ 2.93GHz, but tommorow c2q q9550 should come via post).
didnt installed far cry 3 till now, will look at it once quad is installed. afterall "skyrim with guns, with a lot of guns" should be enjoyed smile.gif
right now i am downloading unigine and 3d mark 11.

but according to msi afterburner i use only 960mb of 3GB vram with everything maxed out including msaa, and vram is running at 3005 mhz. should it not be 6000mhz? gpu is running in games at 55-60% see what usage will be with quad.

would it help if i purchased for 41 eur another duo of 5-5-5-18 1.8V rams? currently have 4gb, so is used so few vram cause my ram is small? I am runnging 1920x1080 for gaming, but also have connected 1280x1024 as second display for other stuff

last bummer is, with my e7500 and hd5750 i was drawing from wall 86 watt idle, 136 watt under load. now i am getting 66 watt idle and 126watt under load as card is just running at 55-60%, will see how it changes, once i installed q9550.

EDIT: ok in unigine i get 33,0 avg fps, while i saw some guy with 660ti and i5-3570k in ti club to get 38,2fps
also in unigine i got 216watt usage from wall, so it does eat a lot of electricity if it wants.

i downloaded free dlc for skyrim with high textures and managed to get 1974 vram usage

additionaly msi ab shows that gpu is sometimes clocked to 1180mhz, while its boost should be 1137 tops, strange

thank you for insights

Right now, your Cpu bottleneck is really High!, you should be getting about 100fps in skyrim max settings, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaXVrCFvL94. I'll say wait till you get your new processor, so you know what and what needs upgrades.. and right now, 4gb of ram will be okay for you, but if you have the extra cash, then 8gb of ram will be bliss if you multi task a lot smile.gif. The 3005Mhz reading is correct... it has something to do with applications, you will also see that value on 3d mark 11.

i got now q9550 @ stock 2.83GHz and it works great with the card. power usage with quad is actually same when idle 66W, under load its 226W tops
BF3 on ultra is 50-60 on maps with cca 10 players, 35-45 on maps with 64 players.
Skyrim is somehow same cca 60fps with mods and enb, tough i was able to to get vram usage to 1974mb

Benchmark 306.97 310.70
Unigine 33.0 33.7 (compared to 33,0 with c2d and 38,2 of some guy with i5-3570k and 660ti in ti topic)
3D Mark 11 3498 3853 (combined score compared to 2018 with c2d and 1898 with c2d/5750

so yes it was quite bottlenecked by dual core.

running now driver 310.70
also do i have to uninstall nvidia driver restart and run additionaly driver sweeper everytime i reinstall nvidia drivers? i red it somewhere

thank you

3D Mark 11 shows 3498 points compared to 2018 with c2d and 1898 with c2d/5750. so yes it was quite bottlenecked by dual core.
Unigine shows 33,6fps compared to 33,0 with c2d and 38,2 of some guy with i5-3570k and 660ti in ti topic
question about drivers.
windows downloaded automatically 306.97 driver, tough i have also the beta 310.61, tough 64 and 70 exist. should I install them?
also do i have to uninstall nvidia driver restart and run additionaly driver sweeper everytime i reinstall nvidia drivers? i red it somewhere
thank you

biggrin.gif i am glad you can run your games fine... Although you still have huge bottleneck...(compared to the fps it get with my 2500k and a single card) Your fps are very very playable. You might run into some games that rely on the Cpu a lot, and that may suck a little. But you would be fine for now.

Don't install the 306.97 driver if you don't have any issues with the 310.61. The 310.61 has better performance in games like far cry 3.. Idk about others, but you can read about it on Nvidia's webby.

In regards to installing them. You do not need to additionally use a driver sweeper every time you re-install. All you need to do when re-installing a driver is to select "Custom installation" Then check the "Perform clean install" check box and install, and you are good to go smile.gif

ok thanks, in bf3 i get card at cca 85-95% utilization and cpu at the same, so i guess i dont have bottleneck in bf3. tough in skyrim gpu is at 55-65% and somehow locked at 60fps tough sometimes it gets to 62,1 so i dont have vsync turned on. i guess i will go and try to play with various enb mods to get gpu usage higher.

also the moment i got quad somehow my system memory usage in games went down like 500+mb possibly cause 12mb of l2 cache can process data on the go much faster than 3mb of e7500. so i dont think i need ram now.

i planned next year to drop 3.3k on 3x 8970, haswell equiualent of i7-3770k, 3x120hz lcds but i guess i can wait it out now smile.gif i mean next 2-4 years down the road we get only crysis3, just cause 2, bf4 and gta v and another bunch of console ports. worst case scenario, i go down with settings from ultra to high, to keep 60fps smile.gif

You need to open skyrim.ini and add iPresentInterval=0 to the [Display] section to disable vsync in Skyrim.

DEAR GOD!!!!
Overclock that Q9550!!!!!!
You can easily bump that thing to 3.4-3.6ghz if you wanted. Even my chip does 4ghz @ 1.28v and thats after more then 4 years of denigration. Hoping that you have a E0 and not a C1. Your boards not the best, but should be able to get 425fsb hopefully. The Overclock is well worth it, Though for the most part that CPU should work pretty well for you. I have mine in my HTPC and it screams and a HTPC gaming rig.

ok vsync turned of and then i have 60-80fps with gpu at 80-99% and cpu around 75% usage. tough only when running and in action, otherwise usage goes down and fps too to cca 50-60 as previously
I have E0 revision on cpu but i also have q8200 cooler which i got from the seller. temperatures are 45-50C when desktoping, first core 70-74C top when seriously playing bf3, other cores 64-69 Celsius

only thing regarding my card (evga gtx 660 ftw signature 2), why does msi afterburner shows it running tops 1176mhz, it should actually top at 1137 ...

thank you

Get a better cooler and overclock it. And also try to set your Nvidia 3d settings in control panel to Prefer Maximum Performance to see if that helps with the gpu's low usage.
