Alright thanks, I wonder how much it will increase once I overclock the 260...

Well there's only one way to find out...

All about the score? But yes you are correct.

Wow, thanks for the quick replies guys, I took the trash out, came back and had 3 replies lol. Yeah, I think it's currently being held back by the RAM I have. I've tried going above 3.2 but it seems that no matter how much more voltage I give, it's unstable. I haven't really worked with it too much. I'm sure if I fiddled with it I could get it stable. Thanks guys!

Well you don't need it 24/7 stable to run 3dmark a couple times.


I know my benching clocks aren't prime stable, but they get through the benches, and that's all that matters!

I'm going to try the [email protected] Edition speeds.(666/1436/1150(2300 effective)

You don't need your RAM that high. Core and Shader is what is important.

In 3dMark06, Canyon Flight (test 3) is really the only test you'll find to be nearly 100% GPU-bound (i.e. mostly affected by the GPU clock, and it goes strongly upward when using SLI).

The first two GPU tests, when you're using a GPU as nice as a GTX260 (while they'll react slightly to SLI or GPU OC's) are more strongly influenced by your CPU's Clock Speed (not by the # of cores, though). They are, as we say, CPU-bottlenecked tests ... at least, when run at the 'stock' benching settings, with a nice video card, they tend to be...

The CPU test scores, of course, are influenced by # of CPU cores, the clock speeds, the IPC (efficiency) of the processor, and to a small extent, your rig's memory bandwidth.

The fourth test is a bit of a mixed bag, typically you can increase your score slightly by increasing your gpu or your cpu clocks, it reacts to each about the same way ...

Yeah, overclocking my processor got me a huge gain... When I overclocked my graphics card it was a so-so.

Yeah OCing the CPU always gives a big gain in 3dmark06 points. Try 3dmark vantage or GPU limited games to see the results of a GPU OC.

That's about the same score that my sig rig got.


I wonder what 2 gtx260's will do.
