i got my new gaming PC built yesterday. i ran 3DMark vantage for test after install all drivers. the result of physics test was so high that is 113.18 operations/s. i saw others got around 15-40. i dont know WTH is that.
now let focus on the topic. my CPU score is 31,376 but i just have 9,897 of Graphic score and total score 12023. what does the Graphic Score depend on? how can i get higher Graphic Score? and i wonder that how much does GTX260 SLI help the score jumps up?
CPU: AMD Phenom II 550 BE 3.1GHz OCed 3.7GHZ
Memory: 3G DDR2 800GHz
MOBO: GIGA GA-MA790X-UD49
Graphic card: GTX260 869 DDR3 little OC
OS: Vista 32-bit
Unless you really need better performance for certain games your system should run all games nicely. Depending on the game, SLI will give you between 0% and 80% improvement. I'm guessing the average of many newer games would be a 50% improvement (or same framerate but better graphics).
Remember to use VSync if you are going much above your refresh rate (60 for flatscreen).
oh sh!t! after off the phyX i just have 8657, losing 4000.
i bought the MOBO at Frys and the guy work there told me that this MOBO support SLI! i am wondering if this board support SLI cause its missing the little chip to connect two graphic card! thanks mindless728! i will check it out and if it doesnt support SLI i then the 2nd PICE slot makes no sense to me and i will return it.
