I have essentially the same system as you: i5-2500k (4.5ghz), Asus P8P67 PRO, Asus GTX 480, Corsair XMS3 4gb (1600mhz), only real difference is my PSU; Corsair TX850w.

I ran the Crysis 2 demo at full graphics, 1920x1080 res with 60+ fps. I'll have to wait till midnight tonight to test the retail game, but I guess it'll be much the same.

So I agree, most likely your PSU letting your system down.

Having this small of a load on your HX850 is resulting in it being less efficient. Here's why (as written by Phaedrus2129):

Yes, I understood that aspect of it. But I didn't want to upgrade for my 1090T and gtx 470 purchase later on, then upgrade again when I went to another gtx 470 /w phsyx still.

Phaedrus2129 is a great guy, but I don't have a lot of money to spend and I can't upgrade parts all the time because my girlfriend would kill me. I went with a 850 instead of getting a 500-600 watt psu, now I have a SB chip at 5GHz, a gtx 470 @ 900 core, a 9800GT at 820/1942 and I'm about to shut off my computer to add another gtx 470 into it.

Glad I went with overkill, at least in this situation

Even with two 470s and a 9800 GT for PhysX, the HX750 would still be enough.

Just sayin'.

Overclocked with all of it water cooled?

Would it be enough for tri sli gtx 470s (overclocked)?

Absolutely. Water cooling systems actually don't consume all that much power.

I was looking at it from the perspective of 607 core at sub 1mv vs 900+ core at 1037mv+ with the water cooling.

I'm not entirely sure how power consumption works with overclocking on these cards, but if it's anything like cpu overclocking then the power used goes up drastically the higher you go.


All three cards are in, gonna see how the 9800GT performs in Mafia II vs the sli 470's lol.


Edit: Not very well, haha
