So, as my sig says, I just purchased an Opty 165 and an x1950PRO. Well, now I'm going to see just how well they will perform compared to my current rig.<br />
<br />
I will be running the latest Aquamark, 3dMark 05, 3DMark 06, and HL2 benchmark at various visual levels.<br />
<br />
Will report back with benchies soon. <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

My new card and CPU won't be here for a few days, but I will post both stock benchmarks and my initial overclocked benchies, as well.<br><br>
And to avoid confusion on my current rig, I have my CPU overclocked like it says in my profile, and no video card overclock.

Not making them?? They must be still making them as newegg is OOS and says availability by 10/27. Also when you OC them you OC both cores right ?? Like if I get a good stepping I could have 2 3ghz cores running??<br>
That would be so killer for my upgrade to not only be double the core but even run faster than what I have now. WOOOT!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

Benches for Current Rig (Check sig for specs):<br><br>
3DMark 05: 3628<br>
3DMark 06: 1009<br>
Half Life 2, 1600 x 1200, High Detail, no AA or AF, no HDR: 62 FPS<br>
Half Life 2, 1600 x 1200, High Detail, 4x AA, 4x AF, Full HDR: 42 FPS<br>
Half Life 2, 1600 x 1200, High Detail, 6x AA, 16x AF, Full HDR: 40 FPS<br><br>
I was surprised how little maxing out AA and AF had over only doing some of each. So, no the next step is to wait for the Opty and the x1950PRO and see how much they improve my scores.

</div>Not quite, AMD is still far from having 2 seperate cores under the ihs like intel, amd have one big die that is split in two so when oc'ing you do it as one as they both have to share the crossbar to the memory controller<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/4/4e/4ef47b76_vbattach33839.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616578/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

</div>Yes but it has to be said your CPU is of a better generation.

Well, my new 3DMark05, with only the new graphics card, same processor, is 8422. More than double the original score, and it runs better on Dual Core, from what I hear.

Well I have to go home in about an hour, so I won't be able to run anything other than that 3DMark05 until Sunday night. But still, more than double the original score is very encouraging <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />
