    I have just received my BFG GTX 280 OC today and i thought i would let you know the results of a few test i have ran

    Q6600 @ 3.2 ghz (400*8)
    8 gig ram 4-4-4-12

    stock card 615/1350/1107

    3D mark 05 -19062
    3D mark 06 -15638

    crysis 1680*1050 X64 DX10

    min/max//average

    high 0AA -25/53//41
    high 2AA -23/45//35
    high 4AA -22/43//34
    very high 0AA -19/29//24
    very high 2AA -15/23//20
    very high 4AA -14/22//19



    over clocked 650/1426/1296

    3D mark 05 -19299
    3D mark 06 -16026

    crysis 1680*1050 X64 DX10

    min/max//average

    high 0AA -24/55//41
    high 2AA -26/47//38
    high 4AA -23/45//36
    very high 0AA -19/31//25
    very high 2AA -16/25//21
    very high 4AA -15/23//20


    would i be correct in thinking from these quick tests that the GTX 280 appears to very CPU limited even with a q6600 @ 3.2 ghz?

    any thoughts or ideas let me know, or any other tests you would like me to run also let me know and i will be happy to do what i can.

    *edit* speed step is ENABLED + the idle temps in pic below are not true idle + 4v in cpu-z is a bug i get sometimes...
    *edit X2* do you think i have tamed crysis on very high with X2aa with a average of 24fps ???? (pics takes after 3 runs of crsyis benchmark, initial scores taken after 1 run (i was in a hurry))

    yeah seems definely bottlnecked by the cpu but good stuff, I prefer these to the reviews of sites. homeusers have less reason to lie. brag perhaps, but theres no pressure from nvidia on the home user to give them agood review. lol
