Vista itself does not use 4 GB. It probably used 500MB (at the most) more memory than XP (which uses about 150-200MB on its own, with nothing else running). It just pre-loads programs it thinks you'll use into the memory, to speed up loading times. That's what uses the rest of the memory.

You are going to have to overclock some if you want good SLI results. Instead of getting another 2GB ram i'd recommend a high end air cooler.
i have liquid cooling to be installed pending the arrival of 2 parts.

but i fail to see how a QUAD core processor creates a bottleneck. i mean, im not saying what you said is wrong, but i would of never thought something like that would pinch these 8800's

lol youre gonna have to tell me what that is, because im not nearly as computer saavy as your overclock regular user.

You didn't say you have a Quad in your specs So I guess people assumed it's a dualy.

However, there obviously is only one Core 2 Extreme running at 2.66GHz, and that's the QX6700.

Your score is low indeed. But then again, you're running stock.

See how much overclocking helps you.

For a QUAD core processor to be any better than a dual core processor, the programmer must write the code to operate on 4 cores. If a lot of the work can only be done on one core, then a multiple core processor is only going to be a bit better than a single core.

I have a quad as well, and I said at 2.66GHz I gain 2-4FPS enabling SLI.

Once again, you WILL have to overclock to see a good performance increase with SLI.

The only tests in 3dmark06 that use quad cores are the CPU tests, the HDR3 and game tests do not.

2x 8800GTX need atleast 3.0Ghz to get a good score increase, dual core and quad core.

Not trying to be rude, just trying to get the point across we have basically the same system, and that was the case for me.

i understood you fine the first time. obviously the quad causes a bottleneck.

but what i was asking was what the dynamics of that were. why, in fact, a QUAD CORE would cause that. i just thought that it would be enough not to bottleneck anything for a while.
