My GTX 260 finially came today and after a little shuffling around and a HD one slot lower Its up and running perfect. I did a little benchmarking in Farcry2, Crysis, Crysis:warhead. Now its not better then I would of exspected but keep it mind its all normal clock and im running it on a PCI exspress x16 1.0 slot. and only 1280 x 1024, it seems able to run higher resolutions but my screen cant fit it correctly.
pc x16 1.0 (for both cards)
Highest Graphics Settings
Geforce 7900 GTO
.Fps= ~8 (In Fire fight)
.Fps= 1** (Shooting my Gun)
Geforce GTX 260
.Fps= ~43 (in Fire fight)
.Fps= 24 (Shooting my Gun)
**My Geforce 7900 GTO Crashed after shooting my gun a couple seconds. Warhead-Crysis was much more graphicly demanding and I was only standing at the start of single player.
So like I said befor not as great as I exspected but a damn good upgrade. 3-5 times more fps.
Also to make sure my gtx 260 GPU is running Alright here are some Numbers I wrote down at heavy graphic load.
Lol yea we all are for somthing or another. Technology ages and dies just like us.
It was middle of last year i upgraded my Motherboard, ram, cpu, so my gpu was a little behind. Got the 7900 GTO back in 10/08/2006, for $50 dollars more then what I paid for my gtx 260 last weekend mind you.. lol
Realy? I should of overclocked mine, but Ive never realy messed with clocking (my dad always warned me long ago it will burn up my computer). But with the Precision program that comes with the GTX 260 its seems actualy realy easy.. And I think maybe by just installing it, it started defualt by overclocking it a bit.
Nevermind I figured it out.. I first thought Precision was just monitoring my current clock speed I didnt relize it was changing it. So i guess ill just set it to factory defualts and just monitor tempeture from time to time (I dont want to overclock).
Are you sure you didn't get an overclocked card ? I've read about it happening to quite a few people.
Precision reads my stock clocks ( 576/999 ) fine and doesn't change them unless I do it myself.
PS; The 7900 GTO is still a decent card, although not for todays games, mine is running in my game server.
Could it be overclocked by accident? I dont know of any way to check clock other then with the Precision program. Anyone else with gtx 260 and pricision that clocks factory on defualt when you isntall it?
I think it's kinda weird that you got lower FPS in Warhead than in Crysis, since they made improvements to the engine to be less demanding.
Yes the setting were different from crysis to crysis warhead I forgot to include that. Crysis wouldnt allow me to use Very High and would only stick to High, while crysis:warhead would allow me to use Enthusiastic (very high).
