Wondering what performance to expect...

Hello. I am currently on my first build and was wondering what kind of performance to expect with these components:

9950 be @ 3.2 ghz
4 gigs of 1066 Corsair Dominator RAM
ASRock WiFi NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
(2) nVidia EVGA GTX 260 w/ 216 processors OC to 627 mhz

Just wanted to know how many fps for Crysis at 1920 x 1200 resolution with 4xAA.

Also wanted to know if this was a good monitor for gaming.

Thanks in advance.

For some idea you can check out these benchmarks from toms...

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/Intel-Core-i7-Nehal...

Those results are with a GTX280, rather than your SLI 260s, and at 1680*1050.

However you will see that your cpu is really the limiting factor in your results.

You will get respectable performance (over 60fps), plus you will be running in 64-bit DX10 on Vista I presume, which will help.

Thank you very much.
I know my cpu probably isn't the best but it was on sale and I had to take it because I'm short on cash.
I'm excited that this will give me that good of performance. Thank you MrSiko.

I know you won't want to here this but I was reading the Core i7 reviews this morning and at 1680x1050 an O/C Core i7 was 110% faster then the fastest AMD CPU. The best thing you can do is try playing a t 1900 x 1200 and see if you get a smooth frame rate, if not try bring the resolution down a bit. It's going to be a case of trial and error.

Thanks for your reply.
Yeah I probably don't have enough money for the i7 considering it is about $300 more than I want to spend.
But do you think I will get a significant performance boost if I were to, say, switch to one of the Intel Quad Q series, maybe a 2.6ghz? Its around $275 but if I get a 30% performance boost, I think it would be well worth the money.
Thanks

To be honest I would keep with what you have.

Alright thanks.
I'll take these suggestions into consideration.
