My new EVGA 7800GT seems slow...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi, over christmas i got a new rig, and it gets 7075 3dmarks. It seems from other people's posts that a 7800gt should be getting around mid-7000s? I am just getting into overclocking and I would like to bring my score up around 8000 without spending any money on cooling or overclocking programs.

Also, in BF2 I am getting big lag spikes where my ping jumps up to around 2-400 for about 20 seconds, is this my computer or the server? I would like to solve this because i keep getting kicked from games for high ping

Any help would be appreciated

That is not bad. My GTX without sli got 8600 on my FX-57. Your score is fine, but I dont think your ping jumps are. I'm not so sure about overclocking on stock heatsink, but I wouldnt recommend it. If you want to overclock your gonna have to spend like 40$ on a better heatsink I bet (but thats coming from someone who has never OCed sucessfully )

that score isn't bad. my rig w/o being OC'd only gets 71xx 3dmarks. i get 74xx-75xx when I OC my cpu and RAM.

you should be able to give your gpu and cpy slight OC's w/o spending money on any extra cooling. have you tried coolbits? it will open up the ability to OC right in your standard nvidia graphics drivers? Also, the beta version of ATI tool works w/ nvidia cards. rivatuner can also do it.

OCing your cpu is relatively easy. I'm not sure what you can expect as far as an OC goes becaues each rig is different, and I'm not sure how the Evga board is for overclocking. You should be able to do 2.4-2.5Ghz w/o upgrading your cooling... but you'll have to see how your cpu does temp wise.

the places that will probably limit you as far as OC'ing are:
your RAM 1gb sticks don't tend to OC well... you'll probably want to run a dividor to keep your RAM at DDR400
your cooling... as you increase clocks and voltage temps rise...
your psu... Aspire psu's are good for medium lvl systems, but not anymore once you start overclocking...

as far as your ping... that is a combination bt/wn your internet connection and the server you are connected to. the lower the number the faster and better your connection is. to lower your ping make sure you aren't running any other programs in the back ground that would be trying to access the internet or upgrade your internet connection

OK. I will try out coolbits, should i get some 3rd party drivers? I looked around a bit on the internet and I found some from Guru3d called NGO, they are modified Forceware drivers. I am using Comcast high-speed with a Linksys WRT54GS, my whole wireless network is speedbooster..

BTW- how do you use coolbits? It is some file that you add to the registry? Also, what's a "dividor" for my RAM?

You most definitely can OC your cpu with the stock cooler if your case has decent airflow. I ran 2.86 with the stock heatsink/paste and my temps were 48.5 C on full load. As far as your 3D score, you'll need to OC your card to get much higher. My OC'd x850 scores 7122, so I don't see why you can't reach almost 8k with a little tweaking. Which drivers to use will take testing because everyone has different results. I've never seen a universal across the board winner when it comes to drivers. I personally use NGO on my Ati and Omega on my Nvidias.

Can Coolbits o/c my video card as well as my processor?
My case seems to have very good airflow, 2x120mm and 1x90mm fans

Only your 3d card, if you dont know your temps don't try to overclock. I would hate to see you fry your brand new comp. No offense, I think you should read more about overclocking before you try it. Get your idle/load temps.

If you try to overclock without knowing your exact temps your probably gonna break something.

yeah, coolbits is a registry tweak that opens up some additional features in the nvidia drivers. just do a google search for coolbits2. as far as 3rd party drivers goes... I just use the official nvidia ones. I tried some different 'tweaked' drivers and they actually brought my score down by about 300 points.

a memory dividor keeps your ram running slower than your cpu. the way AMD's operate is you have the htt (hyper transport) and the default value is 200 (so 200x your cpu multi gives you your cpu speed, 200x2 gives you your ddr speed and 200x5 (htt multi) gives you your true htt speed (1000Mhz)
in order to OC your cpu you increase the htt but this overclocks everything... so you'll want to lower your htt multiplier (keep the total at 1000 or lower) it will also OC your RAM as well... so what a memory dividor does is make your memory still run at 200Mhz (effective 400 or DDR400) you can play around w/ multiplier and such until you get the desiered speed.

as far as overclocking w/ stock hsf. you'll want to keep your cpu under 50 load. I don't like mine going over 40. w/ stock cooling I was able to raise my cpu 450Mhz... you'll have to see what you can do w/ yours.

Is there a program i can download to get my system temps? If not, can't you see them in BIOS? Is there any way tweaked drivers can hurt your system/card?

Anyone have advice on BF2 ping jumps?
