System Upgrade - Check the Benchies
« on: April 09, 2006, 08:56:46 PM »
Thanks to a video editing project, I was able to afford a bit of an upgrade on our test machine.  Check out the benchmark scores!!!   :D

You can see that 3DMark01 is getting limited, but I included it because I remember the day when I would've killed for 6,000 points in that benchmark.

And a couple more . . . I apparently didn't take a screenshot of 3DMark06, but it scored 7,206.

Showoff...

So...are you showing off some new gear that you haven't told anyone about?  Or are you showing off your talents with your new Photoshop Elements? ;)

Must be running a conroe core he found on ebay.  And 4 7900 GTX's in SLI.

Or he's running his imagination, and PS Elements for a benchmark. ;)

 ;D  I had to leave you guys in suspense for a while, but there is no PhotoShop action going on at all.  The specs of the system are listed below.

AMD 3800+ X2 @ 2.5GHz (10x250 Stock Voltage on Air)
2 GB of Crucial PC4000 at DDR500 3-3-3-8 @ 2.6 Volts
DFI LP NF4 Ultra-D Modded To SLI
800GB of Western Digital RAID 0
2 EVGA 7800GT's in SLI @ 480/1140

I haven't begun to really tweak yet.  I've had this processor up to 2.6GHz and I think my cards will hit 500/1200.  I'm waiting on a better cooler for my second 7800GT.

My wife got a new rig with integrated video and I parted out a 6600GT from my test rig for her rig.  I got the second 7800GT for cheap and now have a major SLI upgrade.  I tell you what - gaming at 1680x1050 in FarCry, UT2K4 or TR:Legends looks pretty freakin' sweet.

You going to throw some Oblivion action at it?  Some of the screens are pretty amazing.
