How Much FPS?

Hey I'm building a new Gaming Computer and have a few questions but first here is the build:

Corsair Carbide Series 500R White Steel

Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 600W

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3

CORSAIR Vengeance 4GB DDR3

Intel Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz

EVGA GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked 1GB

I'm not overclocking anything and my resolution is 1280 x 1024

Does anyone know a good estimate of FPS or how well these games would run?
1. Red Orchestra 2
2. Crysis
3. DoW II
4. BiA Hells Highway

  1. no clue, but here's a review on your GPU if that helps.
    I know the processor is different but is your's better or worse? Might help in comparison.
    page 7 has the fps benchmarks they did

    most newegg people say it's really good too lol
  2. yeah man from what I gathered its a great card for the money. I checked out some videos on youtube also with nearly the same setup as mine and it seems it can run Crysis no problem. Hopefully I won't have to upgrade for Max Payne 3 :)
  3. I just looked it up and was surprised when it said the trailer was made from entirely in-game footage.
    Dang it looks good. Nice avatar btw
  4. I cannot pull exact numbers at the top of my head, but they should be playable if not great. At that resolution, you will do fine in most if not all games.
  5. Thanks man! Gonna be per-ordering it, the first 2 were amazing!
  6. you need a bigger screen. 1680/1050 minimum as your wasting your cards performance at that screen size. running your games at such a low rez will cause bottlenecking in less demanding games like cod 4, or games of a similar or lesser quality... you will pump out around 400fps on brothers in arms. this will cause the cpu to bottleneck and degrade system performance.
  7. Ah good to know. My monitor is only like 22" though so what would be a reasonable res?
  8. You have a 22" monitor and the native resolution is 1280x1024? Are you sure about that?
  9. Im pretty sure lol

    On all my source games and some others it says that in the video settings. 1280 x 1024 (native)

    But that could be just because my res for the desktop is that. I don't know I'll try figuring something out.
  10. That's a bit low resolution for the gpu and a cpu that can't OC much. Why not go for the 6670 or maybe 6770?
    Otherwise there's 19 inch 1080p monitors going at newegg for 105 usd.
    You can save more by getting the Corsair 430w psu.
  11. although there are a few low dpi monitors out there in big cases. its more likley you have a 16/9 or 16/10 monitor. its just not set correctly... go into your display properties and check out the screen rez options... also if its a square monitor it could be 12/10, but if its widescreen shaped you have it setup wrong.
    better still whats the make and model.
  12. It's a ACER model #: p223w a

    BTW do not buy this monitor, or anything from acer. I've had nothing but problems with it including that "No Signal" error with two of them. And I've heard many people have also had this problem. Even my acer laptop sucks.
  13. odd. My acer 22" 1680x1050 has been going strong for 4 years now.
  14. I think it must just be the luck of the draw :(

    When it works its a good monitor though
  15. ACER model #: p223w

    DisplaySize: 22" Wide, Display area:473 x 296mm
    5ms Response Time
    1680x1050 Resolution
    2500:1 Contrast Ratio
    View Angle:170x160
    Brightness: 300cd/m2
    Analog Input Signal
    Internal Power Adaptor
    Kensington Lock Supported
    Power Consumption 45W
    Power Saving Off:1W, Standby:2W
    Wall Mountable
    16.7M Colour
    0.282mm Pixel Pitch.

    so, click on the desktop, click screen rezolution and set it to 1080/1050 this is the nativ rez of your monitor... when you play a game go into the video settings and select 1680/1050 to play games at native rez

    your native rez is 1680/1050 and you should always try to run an lcd monitor at its default screen size. your gfx card can easily handle this display and you will be able to run every game oh either high or very high settings.

    so there you have it, you have a bigger screen than you thought you had.. :D

    the reason your screen my not be auto detecting properly is windows may need a driver for it... best to check on the acer site to see if you need 1.
  16. Thanks man but I have not purchased the computer yet and right now I'm using the monitor on my old computer. But I will take your advice once it is built :)
