Nah, he is just taking screenshot at some camera angle where the FPS is actually playable. :roll:
Those screenshots really does not prove anything.
Oh right, so you do actually see thru the bull$hit. I realise that Crysis performs a lot better a lower resolutions......but not so much that u2konline could run it with his p.o.s system.

Yeah, I know very well that he has ran about looking at the sky more or less in order to get that benchmark, and then took the screenshot when he is kind of looking straight ahead, albeit with a lot of empty space in front of him. The lowest frame rate reading of 15 is very telling and much more like what he could expect when playing the game for real as an average, with it dipping down to as low as 5FPS and/or slideshow stuff when the action heats up.

I could run Crysis on my 7900GS 256mb x2 4600+ 1gb ram everything on high no AA or AF @1280x1024 and got 20-28fps but U2k is getting better then my x2 4850e@3ghz 2gb ram and voltmoded and overclocked 8800GT at the same res so i got to call bullshit

whoa, of course. You really think I beleive a 9500gt would pull 60fps?

let me tell you..

I came back to pc's about 4 months ago or so..

The last time I had a top end pc was when the 6800gt was new and exspenisve, FX-55's were $1000 and AMD 3500+ was the budget/performer chip to have.

When I came back I bought a 9400gt.. (totally got fooled into 1gb ram vs 128bit bus)

and bought crysis with it..

Lets just say $1000 later and several GTX's swapped around I still can't play crysis maxxed out.

yeah i believe you too,i think he should jump straight into a location where theres action and watch his magic FPS drop

I am buying my second pcie card this weekend, a 4550 and a 4650 is on my list, but before i go to best buy i am going somewhere else first, so i guess i will let you guys know what i get Sat Night. :) As for the PSU upgrade, really no need if i only buy video cards that are low power. I do have a backup PSU, 350 and i could pick up a second PSU maybe 500, but i have no plans to remove the PSU that shipped with this computer.

And to point out something, when i was using my P3, everyone said a 6200 and that 2400 and 8400gs will be too much on the 90watts PSU that is in the rig, and well everyone was wrong about that, that p3 is still working and it has the 8400gs in it, along with the same PSU that came with the computer back in 2000 and its going on 2010. So as long as i keep it low power cards only, i think i am safe and i never do any OC.


No, because i plan to have 2 rigs, the single core i bought only because i was in a rush to buy and replace a new system over the Pentium III. The single core is fine, however i want a dual core system as my secondary system. And for the main system , i am buying a Quad core. No point in buying a triple core when i can just get a Quad core, even tho around the time i buy a quad core, best buy may have better selections. I want a Quad core with 2.5 or more. 1.8 seems a bit stupid. So i am just going to skip that one from best buy and wait.


I will look around when i go shopping this weekend. I am a offine stopper btw, i support retail stores. :rockout:
I have been supporting retails stores for years, and help people get hired too. I really don't care about spending " that extra money " to buy something i want. I make sure my bills are paid, and well i am not in debt, so i am good!
I think someone needs to explain what he meant. You said why get a triple core when a quad core is better? Well, everyone tells you TO GET SOMETHING GOOD AND ALL YOU ****ING DO IS SETTLE FOR CRAP!!!!

Back in the day I had a Pentium D with a 7950GX2 all on a cheapo 400watt. Games played a little funny and one day the PSU caught fire and I had to blow on it to get the fire to go out. Nothing except the PSU died. :) My point is that sometimes when PSU's go out they don't take anything with them.

I have had 3 PSUs go and take almost the complete rig out. So sometimes you do get lucky and have nothing killed. BTW it seems that video cards are the first thing to get killed in my case

I have a question, i am looking for a fan to cool off my card a bit, which fan do you think is the best from this list:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...#0##1c~~ncabcat0507007##0##c&pagetype=listing

Your CPU is bottlenecking the card BTW.
LOL i highly doubt that, when i am getting a solid 40-80fps to 100fps in bioshock with ease at max settings at 1280x1024. Any game i play now with my 9500GT or 4670 runs perfect at max setting or near it, so i really doubt my 4670 or even my 9500gt is being bottleneck by my amazing single core processor. Every game runs superior dude.

is [not] being bottleneck by my amazing single core processor. Every game runs superior dude.
First of all, it runs superior because before the GPU wasn't good before.. now it is um... better than before, so everything runs better, but not to its full potential... That single core sucks dude... AND GIMME A BREAK... YOUR AMAZING SINGLE CORE OMG

Yeah, your games run way better now that you are using a modern video card, but like you not understanding the difference between PCI and PCI-e, you don't understand how your single core CPU is holding back your GPU performance. :confused:

I am in the same boat with my P4 and HD 3850 AGP. I know my GPU can do so much more but I can't see it because of my slow processor. (and my old slow Windows XP install with tons of ancient crap in the background) :ohwell:

Nevermind, my card only goes up to 60-70c when playing certain games, because i just played 2 games Sonic DX and Alpha prime and the card only went up to 53c.

But not to its full potentia
Wait what? Full potential?
Every game i have tested so far, 1280x1024 Max settings or Near it meaning AAX2 or AAX4 runs between 30-60 frames and more, thats more then enough potential for me. Bioshock for example at max settings 1280x1024 40-115fps. Avg around 40-80.

Ok dude... post a screenshot of your game settings so I can replicate it... please, and thank you.

I play Crysis Warhead @ 1440x900 @ "Gamer" on my HD4850 (see specs) and it would barely muster 30 FPS... however, I will wait for the screens to issue my "stamp".

80-100 FPS in Bioshock on extra high 1280x1024 on your single core/9500GT my ass.

Fuck this guy is so full of shit. I ignored all your other "claims" in Crysis but common. No one is ever going to believe anything you ever say again. You know that right? Your single core is like one of the LOWEST CPU's AMD makes. Its only "superior" to like an old P4 chip!

You keep saying "every game I play on my single core 9500GT runs on extra high" well you clearly aren't playing games like RE5, Crysis, Far Cry 2 etc. That or once again your full of shit and consider 15 FPS to be awesome.

The only way you get 80FPS in Bioshock at extra high is if you're looking at the floor and in Crysis when your looking straight up into the sky lol. Seriously what are you using to measure your frame rate?

Maybe buy a prebuilt computer, add a video card and stop OC(keep everything at stock). Just a thought. :laugh:


I like things simple ok, buy a computer, add a card, boom slam jam wham i am gaming. :laugh::laugh:


Nevermind, my card only goes up to 60-70c when playing certain games, because i just played 2 games Sonic DX and Alpha prime and the card only went up to 53c.


Wait what? Full potential?
Every game i have tested so far, 1280x1024 Max settings or Near it meaning AAX2 or AAX4 runs between 30-60 frames and more, thats more then enough potential for me. Bioshock for example at max settings 1280x1024 40-115fps. Avg around 40-80.
That sounds like BS to me. I have a 17" CRT Monitor and Game at 1280x1024, and my computer is pretty close to yours (A little worse) but there is no way that you could ever run Bioshock at 115 fps with AA and Max Settings. Not with that computer. Resolution makes a difference, but it doesn't make that big a difference.

Edit: Heres the system requirements for Bioshock, decide for yourself if he can run this at full...

Recommended Requirements
CPU – Intel Core 2 Duo processor
System RAM – 2GB
Video card – DX9 – Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 512MB RAM (NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT or better) / DX10 – NVIDIA GeForce 8600 or better
Sound Card – Sound Blaster X-Fi series (Optimized for use with Creative Labs EAX ADVANCED HD 4.0 or EAX ADVANCED HD 5.0 compatible sound cards)

Ok dude... post a screenshot of your game settings so I can replicate itplease, and thank you.
80-100 FPS in Bioshock on extra high 1280x1024 on your single core/9500GT my ass.
You keep saying "every game I play on my single core 9500GT runs on extra high"
Well i am not using my 9500GT right now, i was, but i just bought a new card like last night and i am using my 4670 to run these latest benchmarks:

My Galaxy 9500GT can run Bioshock at the same settings 30-65.

I play Crysis Warhead @ 1440x900 @ "Gamer" on my HD4850 (see specs) and it would barely muster 30 FPS... however, I will wait for the screens to issue my "stamp".
Well i only game at 1280x1024 and i will do some benchmarks with Warhead with my 4670 later at all gamer settings and see how it goes. Play at 1280x1024 please to make it even alright.

Well you clearly aren't playing games like RE5, Crysis, Far Cry 2 etc. That or once again your full of shit and consider 15 FPS to be awesome.
I don't have RE5 and Far cry 2 sorry. And for the last time i am not using my 9500GT right now.

The only way you get 80FPS in Bioshock at extra high
Extra High? Well i am playing the demo, all i see is high settings and every visual option is on which i can set on on DX9. And no i do not get 80fps looking at the floor, i get around 115 just walking around in one of the levels right after the girl gets hit and her buddy comes in to help. That whole scene stays around 50btw.
