Hello guys and gals i,am new to the forums would like to say hello:toast:

Have been reading your forums for six months timed to jump in and get some good feed back

So have just load my box up with with some new amd gear, was hoping to get close to 20k in 3dmarks.

well 13k is as close as got runing amd x3 720 at 3.5 and 4870x2 was thinking should do better then that? so what think 20k to high

Hello and welcome to TPU!!

First of all to break 20k you will need to OC that CPU. At least 3.6.-3.8Ghz will be needed to reach your goal. I dont think you'll need to OC your GPU at all.

If you look at the system in my specs.. I've never broken 20k (19350 is my highest) but since you have more cores it will be much easier.

Indeed, you will need a HEAVY overclock to accomplish numbers like that.

Give you an idea, my x3210 quad @ 3200 did 14k with my 4850 clocked 705/1050.

The 4870x2 is clocked not much faster and loses some over dual physical cards.

My quad will give me tons of points over your tri-core.

And low clocked CPUs. With my E6300 at stock 1.86GHz I would get around 8k in 3dm06. Now with 3.5GHz its almost double the score.

3dmark06 doesn't like ATI cards, mainly because it automatically counts physx points.

Techpowerup Image Upload is recommended, yes... no annoying ads and its faster than imageshack for example.

TPU uploader wil automaticly shrink it to display at the forums (you can click on the image then so it will be displayed in full size).

I myself use MS Paint for quick cropping.

Port forwarding is not necessary.
