It will play games fine, no one is denying that. But it will always have a lower minimum fps in any game that stresses the cpu and the fact of the matter is minimum fps is what you will notice far more than the average and max.

Still better then yours
Run gpu-z while you are running that and watch your gpu usage fall in any of the cpu intensive parts.

No, It's called as a GAMING machine, which is what my PC was BUILT for...... I flat out hammer your pathetic GTX470, regardless of my lowly Phenom 2 x6

uh, or may be those are the parts where its not gpu intensive.


its not like anytime a gpu load drops, that means you're cpu bound.

you're stupid if you think that unless your gpu load is always 100% then you're being cpu bound

Have fun getting lower minimum fps in any game that stresses the cpu and doesn't take advantage of more than 2-3 threads. Your lower minimums will be far more noticeable than his lower average that will still be 60+.

I know you're upset with your results, but please take it out on your cpu and not me.



Don't be mad my single gtx 470 is able to come within a few fps of your more expensive crossfire setup

In the vast majority of games if your gpu can run maxed out it will stay at 100%. Even if its not a gpu intensive part it will just run at much higher fps and still stay around 100%.

2x5850 > 1x470gtx

i know cause i have owned a 5850 and am using a 470.
