Nvidia Control Panel, Manage 3D settings?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
First off thank you for helping me out with this noob question, I appreciate all the help I can get. I am trying to find what is best for my machine, as we all try continuously to do. Going into the control panel (nvidia's) and manage 3D settings there are alot of different possible combinations. I am trying to find one that will make make games run faster/better. More fps when I have everything turned up.

Anisotropic filtering:
Antialiasing-Gamma correction:
Antialiasing-Mode:
Antialiasing-Setting:
Antialiasing-Transparency:
Conformant texture clamp:
Error reporting:
Extension limit:
Force mipmaps:
Maximum pre-rendered frames:
Multi-display/mixed GPU acceleration:
SLI performance mode:
Texture filtering-Anisotrpic sample options:
Texture filtering-Negative LOD bias:
Texture filtering-Quality:
Texture filtering-Trilinear optimization:
Threaded optimization:
Triple buffering:
Vertical sync:

I will be playing with the settings and running tests over the next couple of hours (all night). But I would appreciate the guidance, thanks for you time.

Keep everything application controlled for the most part, then adjust in game settings, if it's not there resort to the nvidia control panel.

I have tried several ways, however I have heard: Force split frame rendering is good, also just looking at your setup I am jealous, why? because your 3dmark score is much higher than mine. 11,150 single ultra, sli:12,296. that's not much of a difference, and you are running 8800gt's 512mb in sli, you would think that my 8800 ultra's 768mb in sli would recieve a higher score. what am i doing wrong, I even installed the new beta drivers 175.80, which i have read is alot better than the 175.16 official release on Nvidia.com. help?

I would use the 177.26 from the guru3d site. As far as the settings, you just have to mess around with them. I keep most of the settings default and use the ingame settings unless there needs to be more eyecandy for the game I am playing. There is a good tweak site that explains alot of the settings in bot the ATI and Nvidia control panel. Good luck and have fun, please post your finding for all us to see.

Edit here is the actual nvidia control panel stuff

Okay just tried new settings, exactly like your drewfus, and I did increase but not like i wanted a mere smidgent. from 12,296 ---->12,561. and I would normally go and do something else instead of watch the test perform, but this time I sat and watched, and the on the second graphics test I get 0 fps, complete and total slide show, any one else having this happen?

okay getting off line for a sec, my brother thinks maybe one of my cards is not working properly, so I am going to pull them both and run one at a time, hopefully to knock that question of the board, here's to both cards working properly.

Okay both gpu's work fine, and did approx: 11,150--->11692 in 3dmark, by them selves. And I was wrong when I said the second graphics test =0fps. It's when it runs the cpu test's, 1 and 2 that I get ofps, anyone else with same or similar results, is my cpu holding my pc back and keeping my 3dmarks low?
I should still get higher scores in sli right, at least 19k???
