hi i have a brand new system and right now my scores are only ok and i dont know if its just because of my hardware, or if its because of my operating system. i have a q9450, foxconn p45a-s motherboard, ocz 1066 4gb, gtx 260 core 216 superclocked, 150gb raptor and 650 watt power supply. im getting 11539 on performance setting on 3dmark vantage (cpu score 38543, gpu score 9354) which is ok. right now im running a stripped version of vista 32 without sp1. my question is if i upgrade to windows ultimate 64 bit with sp1 will i get more performance/fps? cause right now im maxed out on cod4 at 1680 resolution and i am still only getting about 35 fps on the scoutsniper map which is the most intensive map. let me know if my performance will increase with a better os. thanks a million
Vista 64 might help. But by how much, I don't know. Honestly with the 32 bit you may be unable to use all of your ram. Because a 32 bit system can only read like 3 gb worth of ram. However, not sure I'd pay the price for ultimate. I think home premium would be plenty. But really the less things running in the background the better the system should do. At least in general use, maybe not benchies though.
