Benchmark Results: Metro 2033
Metro 2033 features tessellation in DirectX 11 mode, but the GeForce GT 240 doesn’t support this feature. So, we benchmarked it using the DirectX 10 code path.
The less-taxing workload doesn’t seem to help the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 as it struggles to keep ahead of the DDR3-equipped Radeon HD 5570. The rest of the cards perform as we might expect them to relative to one another.
also, a 5670 can be found on newegg for $73 before rebate.
960Mhz+ / 5000+Mhz for the memory. A 21% increase in games (tpu review).
just wondering why we used a 1200w psu when most systems use only 10% of its capacity... i believe the power draw graphs are skewed due to lower efficiency at that load.
Its just standard practise to overkill all other components to make sure they don't cause weird results. Besides the absolute draw isn't important its how the cards compare with each other.
