How much is my EAX1950XTX bottlenecked? - Page 2

post #11 of 28
I'd say take an Opteron 175 or higher. $145 for one of the best Socket 939 chips.

A 3500+ or even an x1950 series card probably won't cut it for Crysis. It may but not at a decent FPS or desirable graphics quality. But it is all speculation until the game comes out. Just wait, 120fps is great in CSS. Just wait until the games you want to play come out and see what cards perform the best in them. And by then, trust me, cards will be even cheaper.

Of course an EAX1950XTX will perform well for Crysis. Crysis supports DX9 no? And an x1950XTX is the best dx9 series card you can buy.
Now all I need is a good CPU to match it, because I agree, a 3500+ will not cut it, at all.

if you wish to play crysis, i would seriously recomend going dual core or even quad core if you have money to blow. your video card is good but the processor is single core and not a good match with your 1950.

I agree with with the previous suggestions of a 6000+ or e6600

Just remember to make sure you have a good supporting motherboard for your new processor if you buy one. =]

Say you get the E6550 that's coming out tomorrow, your score would probably jump from 120 to around 170-220 in the stress test stock.

Well if you're going to go ahead and upgrade the CPU, motherboard, and memory (you will have to do all three) then I'd say grab an E6600 and my motherboard. The performance is awesome, and you'll notice quite a difference.
I would go ahead and get 4Gb of RAM, as it's so cheap right now. With Crysis, the textures will probably require a lot of RAM.
However it's silly to say that an X1950XTX won't be able to handle Crysis....the system requirements are something like a 7600GT........YES it can run it, probably close to max with DX9 shaders.

i had my X1900XTX in my old computer with a Pentium 4 @ 3.0 in it. bringing the same old video card into my new Conroe setup gave me literally 2-3 times as many frames per second in games. CS:S is not a good game to judge your video card on because it is so CPU dependent though. however, you wanted numbers, so:

CSS - i used to average probably 60-70 fps in crowded servers with the old system, now i average 150-170 outside. HDR maps probably lower it a bit - i'm always in a trance while playing that game so i don't pay too much attention.

CoD2 - i had to lock my frames at 75 to keep them steady with the old system - now i can peg it at 333 fps with competition settings and probably like ~150-200 with settings turned up. again, i don't pay attention. more than i need.

anyway, you get the point. your CPU is holding your card back quite a bit - no doubt about it.

EDIT: all the above numbers were with a single video card. the CrossFire in my sig is something i just set up this week.

Awesome! So, what do you reccomend, an E6600, or a 6000? Which would give me more of an FPS boost?
post #19 of 28
I would actualy go for the e6600 instead of the 6000+

And i have a 6000+

Oh and by the way, dont forget you will need to buy ddr2 ram with the new cpu and motherboard

I would say getting dual core Opteron and OCing it should do well to eliminate that bottle neck in some regard. If you can find one, and Opteron 170 or 165 would be great for you. If not that, then a complete rig overhauld (Mobo, RAM, and CPU) with a Brisbane and some G Skill HZs would would be a cheap, future proof, effective method of upgrading your rig to modern day specs.
