My rig at 2.8GHz scored 10582 on 3DMark06. All clocks stock on the GPU, for the record.

So, it's official. Vista/7 + 2.4/2.5GHz X2 + CS:S = fail. Desert helped me out even though we run different setups, but our CPU is nearly the same and we've determined that CPU speed is king in CS:S for Vista/7. *sigh* AM2+, here I come.

I honestly truly think our rigs are just to slow for these cards. I didn't see one bit of a difference between both my 3850 and 4850.

Good luck
thanks thinker that is what I thought when I posted this

Technically my GSO's are PCIe2.0, aside from that the difference is pretty negligable when comparing the 2 I've read some benchmarks where it was less than 5-6% difference.

Im actually looking for a single card solution, and I can still return it and I was just looking and I can get a GTX285 +farcry2 and COD5 for $344 shipped, also XFX. So if you consider the games cost $49.99 each the card is actually only $244.

OK so heres some comparisons. Rig1: DFI lanparty 3500+ @ 2.6ghz, 1 9600GSO stock clocks, 2gb corsair. CSS: 16:10 Everything maxed 16xAA/AF :129.05 FPS, Crysis:16:10 no AA everything set to high 15.86fps (and you guys know I can get 25fps), 3dm03- 19608, 3dmark06-4988. With my opty 180 + 1 GSO its right around 9500. In SLI its closer to 11k
Rig 2: Asus A8n32SLIdeluxe, opty 165 @ 2,3ghz, 4870 1gb (btw this is the OC'd XXX version), 2gb hyperx. CSS:16:10 everything max 8xMSAA, 16xAF-137.13fps. Crysis: 16:10 everything set to high 16xQAA - 26.20 fps. And the difference between AA and no AA using the crysis benchmark was a 1-2 fps increase. 3Dm03-18497, 3dm06-9021.

So as you see the results are less than stellar. Considering that the bandwidth is double and it has more ram I was expecting it to do considerably better. Close to on par with my GSO's in SLI. According to the benchmarks it should be right around that. Ill set my opty 180 up on the DFI NF4 board with the corsair RAM so that way I can do a more accurate benchmark where the only difference will be the video card and HDD.

Joe, is your 4870 512? I dont recall seeing a Visiontek 1gb version.

BlackOmega, yes, the HD4870 is 512MB. Silly me got it within a few days of release.

Games are a not the way I prefer to save on vid cards. the lowest price usually works for me

I'd like to see your dfi results

*sigh*, I was hoping I could get you into the SLI trap again . I'm happy with my cards, just hopefully this opty 170 will help a great deal.
