System Builder Marathon, Dec. 2011: $1200 Enthusiast PC

Benchmark Results: F1 2010 And Metro 2033

Due to an issue with F1 2010's configuration file, scripting this test yields better performance with two of the FX-6100's integer cores disabled. This isn't something you see during actual game play, fortunately.

Once again, the Intel system is obviously superior, except at the highest settings and 2560x1600, where the Radeon HD 6950s facilitate higher frame rates.

Metro 2033 is extremely graphics-intensive, and this is the only game that shows a quantifiable (albeit slim) win in favor of the FX-6100/Radeon HD 6950 CrossFire system at very high detail settings.
