Sgt. D. Pilla;4721896Exactly! 3600 USD = 5,000 - 6,000 AUD!! My System cost me like 3,000 - 4,000 AUD and it will perform close to simlar --EDIT-- My system seems more stable with no FSB voltage increase. Anyways, I got it to 4.25, 1.28v. And what I've always wanted...Vista score of 5.9, The highest! Boo Yeah!! *Makes hot erotic love to PC* 68483d1229126922-post-your-3dmark-vantage-1-0-1-score-vista-score-.jpg

WHAAAAT ?????????!!!!!!!! Dude, Australian (Ausie ? :eek:) Dollars ? ARE YOU KIDDIN' ME ?!!! I could've figured out if you told 3k+ USD, but..... NO !!!! Wait !!! Aren't you the one.... ? No, that's probly someone else... :lol: My system scores the same, btw. Is Sydney good for headbangers ? Just kidding. Dude, glad that it sorted out for me, now's your turn. And as for crapload of money for setup neither of us, you or me have to talk about it, when it comes down to real enthusiasts. :) jk. I'm talking about the vid on YouTube involving purchase liquid nitrogen tank for QX9770 or something like that, for 30k Marks in 3DMark 06. I definitely not falling into that category, if that's what you say. Good luck on achiving your 4.0GHZ+ clock on your CPU, as far as it goes - i will definitely congrat you if it will achive what you trying to achive with it right now. Hope to see your score on ORB & other similar sites/oc forums. I mean it whole-heartedly. P.S. How did you made that dump of Windows Expirience Index ? Care to tell ? :) P.P.S. Here's one of the sites that helped me in my current PC purchase : DriverMax - free driver updates Click the red labels titled "Highest performance CPUs" & "Highest performance video cards", type the name of my, your & say, Oblivious's CPUs for example & in GPUs GTX 280 & HD 4870 X2, see the scores & say what you think. Hope that i sorted things out for you with this link.

Mk, i don't understand any of your post but I'll try...

My system scores the same, btw.

How awesome is it having the highest Vista score...even if it does mean nothing lol

Is Sydney good for headbangers ?

Don't get it, but i'm down south, In Adelaide. I hate Sydney, Its to busy, and dirty, and the people are rude.

Good luck on achiving your 4.0GHZ+ clock on your CPU, as far as it goes

I had achieved 4GHz ages ago, I was trying to achieve higher, Highest I got with my current ram is 4.10GHz.

P.S. How did you made that dump of Windows Expirience Index ? Care to tell ? :)

Prt Scr button on your keyboard, and pasted it into Paint, then cropped and saved the image. DriverMax? Mk, im blind I can't see no red labels lol

8800GT faster? LOL! Maybe you need to look at some benchmarks. AnandTech: The Radeon HD 4850 & 4870: AMD Wins at $199 and $299

CPU difference isn't as much as you make it. Wait wait, heres the kicker. I paid $1/3 of the price for my cpu that you did. I also paid less than 1/2 for my motherboard than you did. And here, I paid less for my GPU than you did. Throw up some 3dmark 03 scores and lets see if your comp is indeed faster than mine. There also happens to be very little difference between the P45 chipset and the X48. Less than 1% difference since the 8x8 crossfire is pci-e 2.0 which is pretty close and will only bottleneck on a 4870X2 crossfire setup.

Actually, I didn't pay for my motherboard :) There was a fuck up when my EX38-DS4 went in for warranty. The 4850 is on the same level as the 8800GT, There is bearly a scrap of difference, Benchies I was looking at before had the 8800GT in front by a bit under 3D Mark 06 and 05, 03 it was behind. CPU difference is massive, Like, 1.1GHz difference. The X48 OCs better, runs cooler and cheaper and uses less power. Either way, I'd be more then happy to say I would smash your system

It shows i forgot basic things like there r keyboard shortcuts & general use in "Copy&Paste". :lol: Thanx m8. (yes i know m8=mate, for a long time actually. Also "dude" for american, "mate" for Irish/Australian/British, or something similar) Take care.

At 1280x1024, with no aa. Yes. At 1680x1050 with aa? 8800 gt will lose quite a bit.

The 8800GT is not on the same level as the 4850. Its on the same level as a 3870 but not a 4850. The 4850 competes with a 9800GTX+ which will kick a 8800GT's ass. The ATI card that competes with the 8800GT is the 4830 and that still beats the 8800GT also. Also, the X48 isn't better at overclocking than the P45 chipset. X48's are better at overclocking Dual cores, while P45s are better at overclocking quads. They are pretty much the same when it comes to everything else. Also, look at real game performance for the video cards, that matter more than 06 and 05 which are heavily CPU dependent. With that being said the only thing your comp would be better at is video encoding/ decoding with the cpu since ATI video cards can do that faster than Quad cores@ 4ghz. Also, 3.06 is my 24/7 clock. When I benchmark my chip can go to 3.4ghz but its not completely stable so I settle on a 100% stable frequency. Hardly a 1.1ghz difference in CPU speed.

Yeah, thats not true ey. Even the benchies Kow provided the 8800GT did better at 1680*1050. I get 70FPS in FarCry 2 at that res maxed out with the exception of shadows being on Very High (Rather then Ultra High).

Also, 3.06 is my 24/7 clock. When I benchmark my chip can go to 3.4ghz but its not completely stable so I settle on a 100% stable frequency.

Yea that doesn't mean anything. 4.10Ghz is my 24/7 clock speed, my 4GHz was aswell. So between our 24/7 clocks, I winrarz by 1.1GHz. And my GT is on the same level at 1680 res as your 4850, and for their price, Its a massive rip off 261$ for a 4850, Or 80$ for an 8800GT performing at less then 5% worse. I think I rather save my money, and buy an 8800GT and get not even 5% less performance, then pay 260$ and have to upgrade again in a few months time because it can no longer keep up.

Does yours run 4.5ghz? THAT would be a 1.1ghz difference. Just because I back it down to 3.06 doesn't mean it wont run 3.4. I just turn it down because I dont like the amount of heat it throws out and the amount of voltage I need to push into it to get that frequency. By the way, did you even READ the scores for each card? The 4850 is quite a bit faster in every test. The 4850 even manages to beat the 8800GT comparing 1680x1050 (4850) to 1280x1024(8800GT). Also, I wouldn't compare prices in your country to mine. I can get a 4850 for about $20 more than a 8800GT. Thats not even factoring in prices on used products if I wanted something already volt modded. And if you want to take frequency and overclocking into consideration I have my card overclocked quite a bit past the stock levels on a 4850.

Its an E8400, It'll run at whatever I throw at it basically. Currently, you running 3.06GHz, Vs me running 4.10GHz, Leaves me 1.1GHz ahead of you. The 8800GT does ANY game at 1650 res, so why the only reason they would lower it to 1280 res is simply to make the 4850 and other cards look better. The fact I can run Crysis (Can, not that I do) on Very High DX10, OQ on Medium and Shadows on High, at 30FPS, 2* AA and 1680 Res, just proves that any benchmarks that put it on a 1280 res is only doing it to be biased towards one or another card

The 4850 is quite a bit faster in every test

I know, a whole 4 FPS in one test, Wow, thats the difference between life and death. And for an extra 200 bucks, who wouldn't opt for another 4FPS rather then saving that money and OCing it.
