Answer is thus..
Vista.sp 1 or 2 32bit.
, celery 3.3, 512 l2, @ 3.7 gig.
4 gig 800meg ( 3 useable, all seen somewhere)
@ faster than fsb/cpu ability.
Generic nvidia 7600gt score IS 4300 ish points!
backtrack o.s. to xp s.p.3,
same system same test 5800 ish points.
7 + fps visibly higher as test runs.
dont do it, dinosaur runners!
wait till an 88gt is 30 quid till u upgrade to 7. it scores the same ish as vista..
dx ten looks like 9.
dont give em the benefit!
save ya doh for 6 months.
if ya cpu is slower than 2x2.3, dont bother at all.
my socket 462 runs the same as this.
