Thread Starter 
Ok so i've upgraded my system and decided to do a small compilation of benchmarks pitting my old system against my new system.

Old System; cpu overclocked:
Q9450 @ 3.6Ghz
DDR2 4GB Corsair Dominator
GTX 295 @ Stock
Asus Rampage Formula X48

New System all settings at stock:
i7-2600K @ Stock
GA-P67A-UD7
GTX 580 @ Stock
DDR3 Corsair Vengence 8GB 8-8-8-24 1600Mhz

Aida 64 - CPU and Memory benchmarks

Q9450 @ 3.6Ghz

VS

i7-2600K (All Stock)




3DMark Vantage

Q9450 @ 3.6Ghz and GTX 295 Stock - No PhysX
3D Mark vantage 1.0.2
3DMark Score Performance: 17071
GPU Sore: 18169
CPU Score: 14453

Core i7-2600 @ Stock with GTX 580 Stock - No PhysX
3D Mark vantage 1.0.2
3DMark Score Performance: 24724

So far i'm super happy and it looks like the upgrade was a succses. I have to work tomorrow so i've only had 2 hours to play with the system so i'll have to benchmark more tomorrow biggrin.gif

To get a closer comparison. You should use the GTX580 on both systems. Using different video cards won't really be an apples to apples comparison.

I know, but i don't have that system anymore it's sold, all the benchmarks were taken a week ago before i sold it off smile.gif. The Aida64 benchmarks are purely focussed on the CPU and RAM so it gives a decent indication of the CPU vs CPU performance win/loss.

Yes if you really want your data to be valid then use same GPU..

I was wondering why GPU score was so much better on Ci7 and then I realised that you`ve used GTX295 for C2Q and GTX580 for SB rig..

CHEERS..
