Should my rig be just as fast or faster than this Toms test

The only thing I see different is the memory and im only running one ATI 1900xtx card with all my bios settings at auto and the memory timing default to 2t

Here is the memory I have.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145491

Toms setup
CPU AMD Athlon 64 FX-60, 2.6 GHz
System Interface 1 GHz HT-Link
Motherboard Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe
Chipset Nvidia nForce4
Memory Mushkin 2x1024 MB PC3200, CL2.0-2-3-2
Hard Drive Western Digital Raptor WD1500, 150 GB, Serial ATA, 10,000 RPM
DVD Gigabyte GO-D1600C
LAN Marvell
Audio Realtek AC97
Power Supply Silverstone SST-ST56ZF, 560 W


Ive got my 4800 at 2.64 through the mobos 10% standard overclock

Heres my specs in sig
So am I close to this setup in terms of performance?

  1. You're close, but you'll have less memory speed due to the extra latency you have.

    Why don't you try to lower the command rate to 1T?
  3. Your raptor is a bit slower. This will make some difference, but I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference. Benchmarks will say one is faster, but you probably can't tell in games.
  4. gl. I don't think there's a way to do this. I c lots of people trying to replicate what THG does, but u gotta keep in mind that they have a lot of $ to work with and these tests are conducted in scientific labs. I want to say they're in Germany. They probably have exact controlled electricity and temp and humidity controlled rooms. U should also keep in mind that no 2 processors are alike. Even if they have the exact same model #.

    You will likely be behind THG's setup. Although you have a 40MHz advantage, and a 220 HTT, the 3-4-4- 8 RAM timings will hurt peformance..as well as the 2T command rate. Also, the 74GB Raptor will be ever-so-slighty slower. So, in conclusion, the RAM timings are what will hold you back..unless you can overclock some more to make up for the latency deficiency's.
