My FPS results and some Questions, pics included*

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My computer is not even a month old, but I finally deiced to test what its capable of.

My computer has the following parts:
GTX660TI gigabyte sc
Kingston hyper x 120gb SSD for operation system and programs
2TB WD GREEN for storage
Intel 17 3770k with normal fan
Thermaltake overseer case - 3 fans
and a thermaltake 800 watt psu
some gigabyte z77-udh4???? cant remember exactly
LG dvdv drive
and Kingston 8gb 16000mhz ram....I think thats it

The build cost was ~$1,500 AUS with Microsoft home 64-bit

I researched the net and donwloaded the FRAPS program. I am new at this so I just got what I could find.

I loaded up The Walking Dead game and got a solid 60. And in GTA SA I got a solid 25.

After clicking about with things I configured the NVIDA settings and turned the V-sync option off.

And the frame limiter off in GTA SA .

My results were something like 270-440 FPS on The Walking Dead game.
And from memory GTA SA got 125, but stayed at 100 then to 75-85 FPS.


My questions are:

What is the normal High temperature of the Gigabyte GTX660ti 2GB SC when graphics are set to highest possible in game and the NVIDA program?
I got 50-60'C. Also any other info or advice on temps would be nice - with anything.

Whats a decent amount of FPS, like avg good for most games?

Oh yea need for speed underground got 60FPS. and I can't make it anyway higher. Does this mean its "maxed out"?

I play on my 22" samsung tv via HDMI and the native resolution is 1680 x 1050. I should set all my games to that exact same resolution correct?










Hope the pics where good enough.

Yes you should always set it to that resolution. Is it a 3d monitor? If so you should make sure that 120HZ is enabled. If not there isn't much of a point in going over 60FPS. IMO I would enable the adaptive vsync in the nvidia control panel. This will limit the games to 60FPS and will make sure that the 40, 30, and 15 FPS limiters that normally happen in v-sync never happen. So it is like the best of both worlds and will cut down on screen tearing a lot.

You could also use lucid mvp and run virtual v-sync if you want higher frame rates without any screen tear.

If you have a 3770k you should throw a decent cooler on it and OC it. You can get this water cooling kit for $30 after a $10 MIR.

Probably get you to 4.4GHz

Anyways a decent frame rate is anything above 30FPS IMO but on that monitor I doubt you will have any problems hit 60 on just about any game you play.

As for your temps... My card is water cooled and gets to 48c so if you are only seeing 50-60 then that is great and you will probably be in boost at all times.

I would download evga precision x and turn your fan speed up since that fan is pretty silent. That will ensure you stay in boost more often. I wouldn't OC it though until you get a new monitor. Just no point in that resolution because you can probably play crysis 3 full out with a decent frame rate at that res.

Thanks for the reply!
It's not a monitor, its my TV. And if the native resolution is 1680 x 1050, Im not getting full 1080p. So yes, a new monitor would be good but there's a samsung one that's got everything ut a bit expensive:
http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/lt27a950aaxy-samsung-t27a950-black-with-tuner-p-53356.html?sort=2a

I don't think I've had any screen tear so far.....
I don't know about Overclocking as i am very unfamiliar with the process and steps and all....
Al;so I think my ram is just 1600mhz....and I was told u only need high ram MHZ for overclocking.....so I'm not sure.

And water cooling is another thing I might look at when my compute becomes out-dated and will just give to my parents for their room. I'm 17 btw, 18 in May.
My case has the option for watercolling, i just don't know much about it and well it works fine.....

Temps do rise when playing games on high fps.

Next upgrade is a new monitor screen. I like the screens on Mac laptops liek my I.T. Teachers one. Those screens are great smile.gif
Defiantly would buy one for my desktop if I could.

Thanks again.

That water cooling system I posted isn't like water cooling with a custom loop. There is nothing special you have to do to install it. Your chip can probably OC to 3.9-4.2GHz without increasing the vcore. If you enable LLC you may even be able to get up to 4.4 without changing any vcore settings.

You should look at the Sony PS3 Monitor. You can get for $250 it is 240HZ (so it can handle up to 240FPS) it is 1080p I believe it comes with 1 pair of glasses.

If you have a PS3 it has an amazing function where you can play 2 player games and each player wears glasses and you get to use the entire screen and you only see your screen and the other player only sees his screen. So full screen 2 player and each person sees something totally different on the screen AMAZING!!!.

Otherwise at $500 you may want to think about getting a 2560x1440 display. You can buy a Nixeus for that much and a lot of people are very happy with that monitor. That monitor will definitely put that card to work.

The Nixeus uses the same panel as the Apple Cinema Display... Just FYI. So if you want super high resolution the Nixeus is baller.

Also you bought a K series processor so use it. smile.gif

You sound liek you really know your stuff.
Well I spent $1,500 and my aim was it to be fast and its fast so far and quiter than my laptop.

So HZ means FPS but for the Screen itself?
I do own a PS3, and a Xbox 360. Haven't Turned them because I cbf put the hdmi cable into them lol

I've herd of the glasses that make you see your screen while playing split screen.
Could you link me on those screens or any other screens?

If Nixeus uses the same Panel type as Apple Cinerama which I've herd of are pretty good, and they don't do that shadow effect when u look at the screen from different angles, I must say I'm interested in saving up for one.

Yes I bought a K series processor. but with a hyper 212 fan, surely I could hit 4.2ghz with good temps anyway.
And even though I'm on a overclocking forum, I got close to no idea with what Im dealing with to overclock safely.
