I upgraded py pc recently. i replaced my old am2/nforce 430 mobo with a brand new am3/amd 770 and got rid of my old asus hd3870 replacing it with a brand new his hd5850. i ve been testing the card with 3dmark06 and although my cpu mark is around 4400 (unlocked and perfectly stable phenom x3 720 running x4 @ 3,1 ghz) the overall stays around 18000, when everyone around is getting at least 22000. 4000 points is a big difference as far as i know. what am i doing wrong? everything is up2date concerning drivers,bios etc
My exact specs: amd phenom II X4 20 @3,1Ghz (100% stable, 46-57 celcius)
2x hdd (samsung f1 500g and wd raptor 150g)
Gigabyte ga-ma 770-ud3 (rev.2)
4 g kingston ddr2 hyperx
cooler master gx 650w
his hd5850 ( 48-75 celcius)
hmmm! thats interesting. i was talking yesterday with the owner of the pc-store and he was trying to convince me to ditch my psu,mobo and ram and get a 1000w psu with a ddr3 mobo and ram husttle ha? thanks u guys. you just saved me about 200 euros.
