I just built a new system its has a Phenom X2 555BE overclocked to 3.6ghz and 4gbs of ram and a 23inch 1920X1080 monitor. At first I installed a EVGA 250 GTS 512mb video card http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite.... It performed ok and got around 38fps average on company of heroes with most of the settings maxed out. I decided that I wanted a little more performance so I decided to go to an XFX HD 5770 1gb video card. After installing it and updated to new drivers I ran a performance test in COH again with the 5770 and now on the same settings Im only getting around 33FPS with the 5770 anyone have any Idea why?

I also ran this test http://www.majorgeeks.com/Video_Card_Stability_Test_d54... the 250gts was getting around 600FPS the 5770 is getting around 300FPS I dont understand why the 250 gts is scoring higher.

1. Did you uninstall the Nvidia drivers?
2. Did you download drive sweeper to get rid of the Nvidia drivers hidden in your registry?
3. Use another benchmarking tool such as 3DVantage or Passmark

That's probably why. Drivers tend to linger around; you need to completely and fully erase them/

Your uncovering the uncomfortable secret, the 5770 performance is in the middle of the gts250- gtx 260. So in some games it does 'beat' it. :)

It's that 128-bit bus cuz.
You can't be too fast on a slow bitpath
if they only would've done the right thing and double it to 256-bit then well, the GTS 250 would've been left on the roadside in a pile of dust..
but that just ain't the case.
It's really a letdown for me sort of because I was interested in the 5770 until I found that small limitation in its Vegas show of trump cards.

some games simply prefer Nvidia

Crysis was one if I recall correctly

Wrong. Know the difference between GDDR3 and GDDR5.

Yep. It was a driver issue after all. =)

Oh I'm convinced alright.
I have opened my eyes to the light that is GDDR5
What a good read will do.
Thanks to the various boardmembers who have guided me in the right direction.
