Hey guys, i currently have the nvidia gx2 card, while its a great card, i get REALLY low 3dmark 06 scores, usually around 3500-4000. I know some people who have the 7950gx2 skyrocket above this for marks. I heard their might be some issues with the motherboard i have and giving issues to the video card which can cause the low scores.<br><br>
Would it be worth getting an ati x1950xtx or pro, over the 7950gx2? I've read and seen the benchmarks online, there are neck n neck.<br><br>
I know the other factor my be my lower resolution im running. Im running 1280x720. Its the highest i can do on my 32" lcd.<br><br>
Any help would be great, since i only have a few more days to keep or return the 7950gx2 to new egg.<br><br>
Thanks,<br><br>

I'm pretty sure the GX2 is faster than a x1950xt<br><br>
I'd say the issue isn't the mobo, it's the low resolution. Have you OCed that E6600?

BenHagerty has a point, couldn't you just send it back for a refund and wait until the 8th of November for G80?

Return it your mobo probably can not see the internal PCI-E switch on the GX2 which is limiting your performance. I would get a G80 which will run all over a X1950XTX might even beat crossfire X1900XTX's when better drivers come out and when 3DMark 07 is out it will be infinitively better due to SM 4.0 support and DX10

</div>What you need to do is update the BIOS, early release BIOS were not optimized for these GX2 cards but with the 0711 they are.<br />
<br />
BTW, the website has the 0804 now, so update your BIOS a.s.a.p. and you'll see an improvement. I'd also advise on trading the Angarbagetec 500w for an OCZ 600W minimum.
