Thanks a lot man!
I am working on some different benchies. I just did 4xAA with low shadows, low postprocessing which is the setting that I play at now. I will go down to 2xAA on HIGH, 0xAA on HIGH, as well as the setting you requested. I will edit the post as I get them finished.

BFG GTX 260 at 650/1427/1070. Driver version 177.41. These benchmarks are done, now it's time to PLAY Crysis!!!!

Idle Temperatures. Just wanted to throw this in here. I am in my air conditioned basement with all fans on high including GPU fan at 100%. GTX260 is running at 34C while my 8800GTS never got below 38C.


4xAA Low Post Processing/Low Shadows 26.995FPS


2xAA High this time with temp monitor running during bench. All fans at 100% 28.78FPS


0xAA Very High Texture/Medium Shadows 35.88FPS


0xAA All High Settings 34.38FPS

Thanks a bundle man! It's just another few benchmarks I won't have to do when the ups man drops off my 260.

I don't really play with AA cause at 1920x1200 it's not super necessary and the performance/eye candy ratio isn't worth it in crysis.
Ultra texture and medium shadows is totally playable! Awesome!!!!

Can't wait to see what the ice levels are gonna be like.

P.S- can you run ATITOOL? Does the 260 work with it?

It is driver 177.26. NOTHING else will work. 177.35 and 177.39 both give me errors when I try to use graphics programs. I can use Windows at my 1920x1200 resolution, but when I try to run Vantage it comes up telling me my graphics card does not support DX10, and when I try to run Crysis it comes up with an error and will not load telling me my video card is not supported. I have cleaned my drivers and reinstalled numerous times using the DC Driver cleaner software and the only thing that will work is the drivers from the disc. Real time game play in Crysis on HIGH looks amazing and that is why I wanted this card. It is much more playable than my 8800GTS 512MB (G92) no matter what the benchmarks say and it looks better as well.

Here is a GPUZ/HWMon/CPUZ shot


*EDIT* Crysis Benchmark High/DX10/64 Bit/1900x1200/No AA 32FPS Average


High/DX10/64 Bit/1280x1024/No AA 46.625 FPS Average




*EDIT* 3dMark Vantage Performance setting benchmark overall score: P9713
http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dmv=192285

3dMark Vantage Extreme Preset
. I am kind of disappointed with this one. X3962. My 8800GTS 512MB overclocked got 2629.


I went into Best Buy today and I was snooping around. They had a BFG GTX 260 OC edition on their shelf for $449. I bought it.

That's pretty good for a $400 card, but if you had paid another $30 and got a GX2 you would be seeing even better results.

Yes, I am a GX2 fanboi. Yes, I give suggestions when nobody asks. And yes, nVidia is my mommy and I am a mamma's boi.

I just played for about 3 hours on 1920x1200 High with 4xAA. No complaints from me. Max temp was 51C.

I'm going to fire up F@H and see how that goes.

*EDIT* I want to point out that I gained 2FPS when going form the drivers that came on the disc to driver 177.41.
