4850 poor score in 3d mark - Page 9

post #81 of 84
Thread Starter 
The E4500 isnt even pushing the 8800GT full speed.

Buy a new CPU. E4500 is a bad overclocker. Grab an E8400. 3Ghz stock, cheap, and it will hit 4Ghz with good cooling.

would my 650I mobo even run the E8400?

If you're not going to OC do not buy the Q6600. You ant over 3Ghz if you're a gamer. And when you play games, 2/4 of the cores in the Q6600 will sit and twiddle their thumbs. Do nothing.

You'd see a huge diff in games. I saw a HUGE diff going from 2.5Ghz to 3.2Ghz when I upgraded Athlons. E4500 is a rather uselss CPU, in fact it has been or is being discontinued.

Wanna go cheap? Buy an E2180 and a good cooler (read reviews like a man) and Overclock that to over 3ghz and that thing will blow away your E4500.

All intel CPU's we discussed are of the same socket so they'd fit in your board. <edited by chozart>
