Sorry I am at work right now and can't provide any screen caps but on Heaven my max was 57fps and min was 6fps, this was with the 9800GTX+ in as a PhysX card, but Heaven showed the 9800 as my GPU...All the settings were maxed out to the fullest...I will try Kombuster later and post back, don't have Vantage only 06 trial...

Now with BC2 I have my resolution @ 1920 X 1080 and all my settings are on low just so I can get the average of 70fps...Once I go to medium or high settings I dip to the 30fps average and I can notice input lag and lag in general. I am talking about with 3D on. In order to have a playable game on my display I need to stay at 60FPS, refresh rate, if not I notice a real choppy game with tones of input lag. If I turn off 3D the FPS does not really change and it was not like that with just my 9800GTX+...

Now the reason why I bought this card was to play all of my games in 3D, the ones that work and for 3D Blu-ray when it releases in June. Now IDK about anyone else but if you spend $550 on a card and it was hyped up to do this and that then why do I have to keep all of my game settings on low just to get playable FPS while in 3D? On top of that my GPU usage is no where near 50% most of the time when that other half of my GPU can be used to help better my FPS...

Also I have no idea why my PhysX GPU is not being used. Could it be cause I have all of my settings on low and there really isn't any PhysX going on cause of it? IDK...I am drawing blanks.

I have tried 3D from both ATI and Nvidia. I can honestly say Nvidia has a better driver for it in general but damn I have never gone from switching off 3D and not seeing my FPS double up its crazy, I will post some compairision screens later with Fraps to show my FPS with 3D on then off...

I will post screen caps later just to show my point...

Could I have the PhysX card installed wrong? I installed my 480 first then installed drivers shut down, put in 9800 turn on, Windows automatically installed the drivers for it and NvCP set the 9800 as the PhysX card automatically also...IDK what else to do, I got all my Window system settings to max performance and the same with the NvCP...

I am so

hmm seanicy for as far as i know bc2 doesnt use physx so that card wont be used for it

as for bad company 2 when i tested the game and how hot the 480 gtx got while playing it i noticed on msi afterburner that the gpu usage wasnt at all 100 % al the time it was rather a ping pong game going from 65% use to 99% constantly while playing no loading screens just pure action

so i think iether there is something wrong with nvidia's current drivers towards that game
ORRRR the engine bc2 is build on is a bit crapy * wich i believe is the case seeing as ati also having a ton of problems with this game*

so in future that should be fixed.................i hope.................damned ea

I'm interested in getting the GTX 470. I wanna know how well it scales against the HD5850 series?

Don't want any sli or anything, just a good single slot gpu card for casual gaming that has good price/performance ratio that will last me for quite a while. So.. the 470 is the way to go right? please say yes.... I'm a big Nvidia fan boy and despise all Ati cards

Yeah in BC 2 my GPU usage also does a little ping pong game, it never stays at a constant 99% usage. It goes crazy, all the way from 50% to 99% They did say that there were a few issues with DX 11 cards right now with that game. Also Seanicy, something is wrong man. Take out your 9800 GTX and just use your GTX 480. It should not be doing that, even in 3d. Plus, these GTX 470/480's run physx really really well, there is no need for a dedicated physx card, it barely helps.

I didn't even think about that...I assumed cause it was a 3D Vision ready title it had PhysX also


I will try out Batman later then and see what is up...Thanks for you help so far
+1 for you

I think the drivers are immature still and hopefully will get better down the road...

I would assume that if one is playing a game in 3D and the card is rendering everything twice the card should be under a larger load and not stay in the 50% load range...I could use the other 50% for some more FPS instead of dropping down quality settings...Does not make sense to me at all...Like I said earlier I will post some screen caps later when I get home so I can show you guys what I mean...Thanks for the help so far...

Seanicy, nvidia said that the 256 driver will be the one for 3d. So you have to wait for it.
