Post your scores in the new 3DMark05 from Futuremark. Make sure you post your full system specifications (including processor, motherboard, video card, RAM, video driver version, and operating system), along with the resolution and video settings you run the test on. Post the speeds, if overclocked, along with your RAM timings, if you know them. It's preferable that you run without AA or AF at a resolution of 1024x768, as most systems will be using that which means more accurate points of comparison.

See this thread (http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthread.php?t=18396) for more information regarding 3DMark05. Make sure you note the requirements before wasting your own time and downloading a huge program that you can't use.

I'll post mine as soon as it finishes downloading. :2gunsfiri

Specs:
Pentium 4 2.0A @ 2GHz
Intel D845GRG motherboard
768MB of RAM @ 133MHz, 2.5-3-3-6 timings (can't be changed)
Radeon 9800 Pro, overclocked to 405MHz Core, 380 MHz (760MHz DDR) Memory
Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 1
4.8 Catalysts
I ran the free version at 1024x768 with no custom OpenGL or Direct3D settings.

The CPU test was like a slideshow for me. It wasn't much better with 3DMark03, though. Now once I get enough money for an Athlon 64 setup... :ar15firin

Darthtanion, What are you seeing for CPU score?

Yawgm0th
10-08-2004, 09:25 AM
Upgrade your card; you're just wasting that poor Athlon 64. Hell, I'd sell the Raptor, get an 80GB Seagate SATA, sell the 9600XT, and with all the money you could almost get a GeForce 6800, which is pretty much the minimum I'd go with for that system. A GT or X800Pro would be much better,

CPU marks? Is that in the full version or something?

Darth, tweak that damn thing. Try a tRAS of 9-11; run through the usual tweaking guides; overclock it, of course. What a lucky ******* you are.

Jjd53887, it just occured to me that your tRAS is totally wrong. It should be at at least 7 (2.5+2+2=6.5, tRAS should be >= CAS+tRCD+2). It should probably be higher than 7, although I couldn't tell you what's best for P4s. That's assuming you can't just loosen them up a bit and overclock more, which would probably be best for that...

Updated a driver and the latest results are as follows:
3DMarks - 4764
CPU - 4662

Yawg, go into the details of the test to get the CPU rating. It does not show in the popup window that appears after finishing the tests. You have to have Excel 2000 or newer, however, to get this data. Alternatively, you can also go to the ORB and get the CPU results there.

Yawgm0th
10-08-2004, 09:51 AM
Or, I could just use OpenOffice, since it will open Excel files. :thumbsup: I may be getting some new RAM soon (to be used with my replacement system, but that's a big maybe), in which case I'll take the time to run the test again and check the CPU score. Either that, or I'll just get the new system and throw my PC2100 in there (an A64 2800 with PC2100 is still better than a 2.0A with PC2100) until I can afford better.

Yawgm0th
10-09-2004, 07:39 AM
No way. You've done something totally wrong, probably with driver installation. Even on a 128-bit card, you should be getting way more than that. That's what I think, anyway. Even 3DMark, being so GPU-intensive, shouldn't say my rig is that much better than yours, regardless of the superior video card and excessive amount of tweaking I've done. Either something's wrong with that motherboard (KT8V? I've heard of the K8V...), or you've done something wrong somewhere else, drivers being a good place to start. Install the latest drivers from nVidia, even if you already have. You sohuld also close all background programs, and the test sohuld be run at 1024x768 with no AA or AF (otherwise no one know if that's a good score). You should also look through the relevant guides at www.tweakguides.com.

For starters, either overclock your CPU and RAM or adjust the timings as I imagine your RAM doesn't have very good timings at stock.

On top of that, just run through the tweaking guides at www.tweakguides.com.

I'd actually suggest you reinstall Windows entirely, though. RAID 0 is a waste of your second hard drive. It means virtually no performance improvement, and it wastes the entire drive. You don't have 160GB, you have 80GB.

Hey Yawg

Sounds like my 9600XT is the bottle-neck alright. :bawling:
The problem with upgrading my card is the power supply. Being a shuttle, it has the 250 W power supply. I originally purchased the system, because my friend told me you could get a 450W from SilentX, but I have not had any luck finding it.

So my question for you or anyone else here is:
What card will my rig support up to?

Yawgm0th
10-15-2004, 11:58 AM
Pretty much anything from ATI. ATI's cards are fairly low power consumption, and if you can get a 9600XT to work, you can probably get an X800 Pro. Even though it's only a 250W PSU, it's probably pretty high-quality, too. Check this (http://graphics.tomshardware.com/graphic/20040504/ati-x800-09.html) article out. Note that their system is probably a but more power hungry than yours.

OCZ and AandTech says to use that timing for P4's and just move the CAS to 3 for higher OC'in. If it was a AMD board, then you would be right i think.

The best timings for P4's is 2-2-2-5 so long as your memory can run them but where he got that lame formular from is anyone's guess.

What a load of crap there, Mushkin may have reasoin for this for their line of memory though it helps if you realise that there's a big difference between P4, K7 and K8 processors in how they handle timings to start with, but quite frankly it shows that you young teenages experience is in what you'se have read more than what you'se have had with hands on experience with, so who's a dumbass now?

*Back on topic*

I updated to the 4.10 Catalysts with Catalyst Control Center. After removing all of the unecessary crap that comes with it and tweaking the settings in it, I reran 3DMark05 using the same system as described on the first page (though my 9800 Pro was clocked at 274 this time, 4MHz higher than before) I scored 2299. That's nearly a 10% increase, and I doubt the higher memory clock did anything. Whether the 4.10s are just superior or it's the Catalyst AI (which I had on High), it sure did mean a huge improvement.

I'd highly recommend the 4.10 Cats with Catalyst Control Center. For more help getting rid of the extra performance-reducing processes that come with CCC, read the Catalyst Installation Guide (http://www.tweakguides.com/ATICAT_1.html) on www.tweakguides.com.

I'd suggest you run through the Windows XP Tweaking Guide on www.tweakguides.com or at least get your number of processes down. That's a pretty high number of processes to have for normal use, and you should be well under 20 during the test (probably 15 to 17 without any serious tweaking). Even though 3DMark is mostly dependant on the video card, it will mean an improvement. It will help a lot during games, too.

Hehe, told you so. If you didn't, follow the instructions on www.tweakguides.com for the Control Center because it installs a lot of extra, removable crap that will hurt performance a lot. It can take anywhere from 40MB to 100MB of memory, which is way too much for background applications.

11-03-2004, 12:13 PM
I hate it too, but you need it for Catalyst AI, or which is basically application-specific driver optimization. It makes a huge difference in many games and possibly even 3DMark05. It's easily worth the time it takes to remove the CCC's related startup entries for the improvement you'll get.

I like to think my image quality is 100%, I stayed away from geforce FX due to Nvidia's past optimisations (shader replacement etc). I always use FSAA and anisotropic filtering in games, and im tired of this 9600's "brilinear" filtering, which causes problems in a few games (visible mipmap transitions on surfaces). I like the fact Nvidia has sorted out their image quality with the geforce 6 series and the Directx 9.0c compliance is also nice. Catalyst A.I. doesnt suit my tastes at all.

Edit: The seperate Direct3D and OpenGL settings are useful to me, due to the games i play i find 4x FSAA + 8x aniso is good for OpenGL and 2x FSAA + 8x aniso is good for Direct3D games without killing the framerate.

He meant processes, not services. I have 11 or 10, depending on whether or not I close Explorer. But you need to understand that I turn off my antivirus, firewall, all applications, and disable a lot of functionality. You'll want to read through Windows XP Tweaking: Reformat to Relax" on www.tweakguides.com. You'll also want to read through the services guide on www.blackviper.com. But remember, you'll end up temporarily disabling functionality in many way every time you game to get so few (10-13) processes, and it won't be much worse at 15 or greater but your computer will still function without needing you to go into services.msc and starting services that you had stopped.

sr4470, if you check the tests using Catalyst AI, you'll find that they don't reduce image quality at all.

KoolDrew
11-05-2004, 07:09 PM
Yes I meant processes. Another good thing to do is create a bat file that will stop the services not required for gaming. To do this just create a new text document on your desktop called "netstop.bat". Now you cna go to start -> run _> "services.msc" then look at any of the services that are running that are not required for gaming. Now that you know what ones you want to disable just put a line like this in the .bat file

NET STOP "Automatic Updates"

Do that for every service you want disabled. and save the .bat file. NOw when you double click this all your services that you chose to stop will stop. This is really helpful for anti-virus and other stuff.

If you want to start these services back up later after gfaming then just do the same thing but name the file "netstart.bat" and for every service that is in the other change STOP to START so it will look like this.

NET START "Automatic Updates"

Yawgm0th
11-06-2004, 05:38 AM
I thought about doing that, but I'm usually to lazy to create batch files for this type of thing, even though it would be easier than regularly going into services.msc...

KoolDrew
11-06-2004, 06:07 AM
I find it very helpful as all I have to do is double click the netstop.bat file and it will quickly stop all of them listed. Then after gaming i just run netstart.bat so my other stuff works.

Yawgm0th
11-06-2004, 06:33 AM
Yeah, I went and set it up so it'll turn off (and on) my AV and printing services. I leave just about everything else disabled anyway since I'll be reformatting this thing soon (ie no need for the Windows Update crap).

12-04-2004, 10:14 AM
I'd actually suggest you reinstall Windows entirely, though. RAID 0 is a waste of your second hard drive. It means virtually no performance improvement, and it wastes the entire drive. You don't have 160GB, you have 80GB. YawgmOth, I think you may be mistaken, RAID-0(should be AID since there is no redundancy) is known for it's low cost and speed improvement. The size is determined by the size of the smallest drive X number of drives, so two 80 gigs would equal 160 gigs. The stripe size determines how efficient the space is used, with a trade for performance. So RAID-0 with 128k stripe would be among the fastest RAID setups going.




My '05 score with the free download has ranged from 2400 to 2800 with different system settings. It does vary, but mostly gives me 2550-2600 range

System is as follows:
P-4 2.6 512k OC to 3.0
Asus P4T-E I850 chipset
ATI AIW 9800 pro clocked to 430/360
1.5gig PC-800 (RDRAM, don't know timings)

The best results are using the latest ATI drivers, Omega drivers did not make any improvement as I tend to keep things pretty clean with my system. Also, the tweak guides may have been the cause of some sporadic behavior with my system, and did not make a noticeable improvement(again, I keep things clean anyway).

Yawgm0th
12-04-2004, 12:38 PM
I was thinking of RAID 1 in terms of size, but as for speed it simply isn't worth it most of the time. One drive failure will mean the loss of the entire array, which is hardly worth the speed unless you do something like video or image editting or anything that needs a lot of drive bandwidth. It means almost nothing for loading times in games and other applications.

The tweak guides shouldn't cause any misbehavior unless you follow the services.msc section. However, they will make little difference if you watch how many running processes you have and are GPU-limted anyway (which you are, for the most partm especially in 3DMark).

I'm sure you'll agree that the hard drive is by far the slowest of the major CPU sub-systems and any increase in performance is weighted more heavily since it is bottleneck that sees frequent use.

I suppose I am speaking from more of an enthusiasts perspective, but even with just 2 drives in RAID 0 I saw a night and day difference in just about everything I did. Windows loaded much faster, browsers popped up as soon as I hit the quick launch. I don't know of an application that does not load 1/3 to 1/2 times faster(photoshop, 3D MAX, premire, etc..) I noticed a larger improvement going to the 2 74gig raptors(from U2W SCSI) than I did when I upgraded my CPU from 1.8(2.0) to the 2.6(3.0).

No, the PCI bus itself is the largest bottleneck, but that should be next to completely fixed within the next few years, and the alternative's already available.

It's true that a faster hardrive will mean improved boot times and even some loading times (hell, just search around for people who have installed Windows XP on flash memory cards and booted in just a few seconds), but they don't do much for most gaming. Load times of games are much more dependant on the amount and speed of RAM, the amount of the paging file (though the added speed helps here a litte), and the amount of video memory. For example, a system with a 768MB of RAM, a 7200RPM HDD, and a 256MB card will load "High-quality" Doom 3 levels a hell of a lot faster than a system with 512MB of RAM, a 128MB card, and as many high-speed RAID 0 drives as you can imagine, even if they're SATA (ie 10000RPM Raptors) or even SCSI.

But this is all irrelevant, since it has abosolutely nothing to do with 3DMark05. I'm sure we'll all agree that hard drive has no impact and 3DMark scores (unless maybe you're using a 8GB drive with a small paging file, which might drop an average score by 100 points).

The RAM will do little to nothing for 3DMark (though actual games will have much faster loading times), and I can't see why you would ever get that card unless either a very good deal is available to you or you already own it. IF you're talking about spending fmoney to buy a new card, look for something else. But yes, that card would increase the score.

Grunty313
12-10-2004, 02:59 AM
The reason im getting the card is i dont want to get one off the net and my dad is getting it from his shop and there arent any better ones they sell apart from the 6800 ultra wich is over 320 and that is a bit much to have for an xmas present along with all the other stuff so realy the fx5900xt give a lot better performance than my fx5700 at a reasonable price pluss along with the current system and extra ram it shuld be able to run almost every game with pretty high fps i reckon. Besides its not bad to have built your own system like that from scratch at only 15 years of age is it :smilies13 so with the extra ram and the fx5900xt graphics card id be dead chuffed lol.

12-11-2004, 02:44 PM
I'd try to order it online as hard as possible, but I'm suprised they don't have something better than that other than a 6800 Ultra. There are about a dozen or so cards out now that will outperform that thing, more than half of which shouldn't cost more. But if that's your only option, go for it, because it will help a lot.

Grunty313
12-11-2004, 10:11 PM
Well they do have a better card in that costs just 2 more but it comes in the form of a saphire radeon 9800pro 128mb i mean ye ive heard its a good card its just ive allways bin an nvidia person the thing that puts me off about radeons is driver problems and game compatibility etc i dont know if these problems have been fixed now or not but i am into nvidia more just due to the limited amount of hassle needed and fully compatable with everygame realy.

Compatability and driver issues have not been a problem for the ATI line for a few years. That is ancient history.

Grunty313
12-12-2004, 09:24 AM
So exactly how much of an advantage over the fx5900xt will a get with the 9800pro

note:the gainward fxpower pack fx5900xt golden sample runs a lot faster than any of the other 5900xt on the market is it is an overclocked card when purchased that is the reason for the heat spreaders on the memory and the large fan and heatsink for the core.

Yawgm0th
12-12-2004, 01:05 PM
We can't really tell you how much better you'll get in 3DMark05, but you can look for people using the FX5900XT and the 9800 Pro and compare scores.

Anyway, the Sapphire, if it's at all like mine, will overclock just short of 9800XT speeds with no case airflow and stock cooling, while a cheap aftermarket cooler and a single exhaust case fan bring it past XT speeds. At those speed, I'd take it over the FX5900XT any day. Nvidia's line at that level back when the 5900s were still fairly new was far worse than ATI's (meaning it still is). Nvidia is already replacing it with newer cards. Speaking of which...

If you're going to stick with nVidia, go for a 6600GT, which is a bit more than an Fx5900, but noticably better than it and the 9800 Pro. Anything below that, stick with ATI. Up until the 6800 series, ATI was the leader for quite some time.

That's about right for that card, I'd say. We're talking about 3DMark 05 here; your card is one of the weakest cards that can even run it. What's it doing in a [email protected] machine? It may not be an Athlon 64, but it's not exactly a weak gaming CPU.

That said, there are things you can do to help. Changing those latencies, if your RAM and board will do it stabiliy/at all, would be smart. See if it'll run 2.5-3-3-5, or even 2-3-3-5. You could also run it a bit faster, though you'd likely have to either increase or decrease your CPU overclock, preferably increase (not that it'll make any noticable difference in any gaming or gaming benchmark either way).

You can also run through some of the relevant guides at www.tweakguides.com, particularly the XP and ATI ones.

BTW, it'd be great if you could resize that image for our members using dual-up and for those of us at 1024x768 or less resolution (which is more than 99% of everyone). It'd also be smart to get the BF Vietnam key changer out of there so Darthtanion doesn't remove it entirely.

Did you have to loosen memory timings as you were overclocking? That would explain it. But it could just be bad luck. The score can vary as much as 200 points and with the CPU having almost no effect, A drop of less than a hundred points shouldn't be that unusual.

Unless you have automatic updates turned on (bad call in my humble little opinion), you should have an option under the TOOLS menu of IE that will take you to the Windows Update site.

ok cool, i got that all set up. i was just wondering, i was playing bf2 for a while, and when i got out i check to see my temps. and i was upset when i saw my chipset temp was at 55! everything else was 30s-low 40s
i have a zalman cooler, isn't that supposed to help cut down. or is it ok for my chipset ot be running that hot.

How well does that power supply work in your system? My 520W Modstream is overwhelmed by the GTXs and I need to upgrade it. I love OCZ and to me they are pretty much the only choice. I also plan on upgrading my ram to a 2GB kit as well, but I plan on going with the OCZ Platinum EB PC4000 2X1GB kit.

Oh yeah, sweet score! I am around 10K stock right now in 05, 11.5K with a small CPU overclock.

speedDMN
01-01-2006, 01:32 AM
actually I have had no power supply problems that I know of. had some other disasters getting this rig running like a water cooling leak in one of my vga blocks that leaked on the card below ruining the $700 card not to mention the dfi lanparty ut nf4 sli dr mobo. Fortunately BFG is very good about replacements so I had a new one in about a week from the time I sent it back. I will never buy another brand now! I didn't replace the mobo with another dfi since I had major bios issues with it. Had to hold my breath everytime I had to reboot wondering if it would post to cmos. screw that. From what I read it is a common problem with DFI boards. I have had no problems with the asus that way though it has it own quirks. The DFI was laid out much better for example. Asus has the floppy and mobo molex righ under the bottom pci slot. what the hell were they thinking? Works but tighter than I would like to see it. I would like to see just one board out there that doesn't have the chipset cooler obscured by the Vcards. Oh well. burn baby burn : ) Also the memory sticks are right next to eachother in dual channel. pretty stupid too for heat reasons. how many people have 4 sticks in thier board? I didn't want to go with over spec speed memory as just about all sli boards call for 400mhz. just less problems with stability. not that it can't give you some small gain but with overall benchmarks memory plays a fairly small role. I know people will disagree with that but the main thing is processor big time. I got a score of 13567 with the same settting but with the core oc'ed to 3024. I could probably get 15000 if I really tried but why burn up my stuff to see numbers... well it is kinda fun lol but I would rather burn it on games. F.E.A.R. totally rules in sli! Do you have two different brands in sli? Don't see why it wouldn't work just they always say you need 2 identical cards same brand etc. At least you paid some attention to sound. Seems a lot of people overlook good quality sound like me in my sig whoops. I have a creative xfi with an altec lansing 400w 4.1. had the speakers for almost 4 years now and have no plans to replace them. awesome for games and just jamming out. I don't need a seperate stereo. You know amd is changing their fx/55 to the san diego core so with a little oc it is about the same as the 57 but for about $300 less. If you want to really increase your sys that is where to go. It might be that your 2 cards are overwhelming your chip since 2.2g is a little light for your specs. I'm assuming it's 939. anyway I think I have to do some work or something. Peace!

casecutter
01-01-2006, 03:42 AM
Without a doubt the cards are too much for my CPU. I still get incredible framerates in games so that is all that really matters to me. I know I need a better PSU as I have some stability issues, especially when overclocking. I don't want to overclock some crazy amount, just enough to help ease the CPU bottleneck. And yes, sound quality is very very important to me.

These two different cards run very well together. The new driverset allows you to run any manufacturer's card with each other as long as they have the same core. One of these days I am gonna flash the EVGA card into a BFG OC anyways. I like the idea of 1300MHz memory stock, and the EVGA does that no sweat.

speedDMN
01-01-2006, 04:17 AM
I don't know man I have about if not the same PSU and I have no probs. I had a ultra xfinity 600w and for real didn't have any probs with it either but I got tired of everybody ripping on it so I got the ocz which in the DFI forums was the one to get. I found out that wattage doesn't mean a whole lot if you have low amperage. Nvidia has been signing off on SLi for PSU's with 30A or better on the 12v rail. A lot of those guys in the forum actually know what they were talking about, unlike me a lot of the time lol. If you get stability problems when you overclock (who doesn't) it probably has to do with voltage settings etc. Nice thing about the abit mobo is it has an OC utility that actually works. It adjust the voltages, bus speed etc. automatically. No substitute for the real enthusiast of course but works for my limited knowledge. Besides, overclocking my rig is like suping up a farrari, just don't really need it. If you are getting a 10k+ score in 3dmark not much benefit to you either. If I were you I would keeps the PSU unless you know for sure that what's wrong and think about a faster chip. the dual cores are nice for some things. The slowest of which will run circles around my fx/57 in multithread apps but I like the raw power of my single core monster. I go to open something and my 10k raptors are like "alright alright we're moving as fast as we can!" loud suckers but I kinda like to hear them work. Oh also the memory you have is one of the most popular choices for the hard core overclockers. The sticks I have are not too good to overclock but you can't kill them, really are made for server applications and again some guys who know a lot more than me say forget memory (to a point) it's all about CPU. oh and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

casecutter
01-01-2006, 07:12 AM
Happy New Year to you as well!

Well, my power supply is not nearly as strong as your Powerstream. You have about 34-36A on the 12V+ rail and I have only 28A. Plus, the Powerstream is much more stable and has more grunt. The main reason I am changing my memory is I want a 2 GB kit and I am moving away from hardcore overclocking. I do have a 3800+ X2 CPU coming next week, so I have already jumped on the dual core bandwagon. I plan on giving it a mild overclock to somewhere around 2.4GHz and I will be in **** heaven. And I will say one thing, be very happy you ditched that Ultra power supply, they are garbage.

I actually had to pull one card out today due to the instabilities my system has. Now it is OK, but I miss that other card when gaming. I knew my PSU was not strong enough, I was just hoping to get a few more weeks before upgrading.

speedDMN
01-01-2006, 09:07 AM
huh funny because I noticed no problems associated with PSU even with the 600w ultra. course it is a second generation so vast improvements over the last ones and is actually SLi certified by nvidia which I think only 10 or so are but I heard so much negative stuff about it I figured I would just take that out of the equation. Don't blame you for upgrading mem if only 1g total. wow you know I remember when having 32mb of ram was good lol. I said I wasn't going to fool with stock settings too much but I just have to have a stable 3g. I changed the multiplier from 14x to 15x and upped the voltage from 1.4 to 1.5 no crashes sofar seems stable. I think I have done enough burn in for a while so I will just see how it goes. Well have a good one. I am heading to the bar to work on a hangover for tomorrow : )

I agree. You will not get much more because 3D Mark 05 is heavily dependant on the video card for the score. You may hit the high 5K range, but I would be shocked ot see more. Besides, any PC that can score 5K+ in 05 is quite ready to play any game out right now, most on high settings as well.

casecutter
04-20-2006, 08:02 AM
It may help alittle, but as I said, 3D Mark 05 is very much video card dependant. Don't put alot of faith in benchmarks. They are not totally realistic on real worl performance anyways. You will have quite an impressive system once it is together. Your current rig was not bad at all considering it's performance. Use 3D Mark 03 if you want a better feel of overall performance gains. It is more of a 50/50 mix of CPU and video card testing. 3D Mark 01 SE is heavily dependant on the CPU so that is good for testing that aspect. 3D Mark 06 is a joke and is not reliable at all.

The biggest thing I can emphasize is that once you have your new system built, the last piece you "need" is a 2GB ram kit and you are ready for anything. And remember this, the best part about AMD64 CPU's is that you can use a divider on the memory if overclocking and not suffer any performance loss unlike Intel stuff. Once you are ready, I bet that 3700+ will easily do 2.5-2.6GHz on the stock cooler. Enjoy it.

oh and if i get a 2gb kit will it oc fine thanks casecutter

It really depends on which 2GB kit you get. The more you spend the better, that's for sure. My ram will OC very very well, but it is one of the more expensive kits. Plus it likes voltage too.

Post your scores in the new 3DMark05 from Futuremark. Make sure you post your full system specifications (including processor, motherboard, video card, RAM, video driver version, and operating system), along with the resolution and video settings you run the test on. Post the speeds, if overclocked, along with your RAM timings, if you know them. It's preferable that you run without AA or AF at a resolution of 1024x768, as most systems will be using that which means more accurate points of comparison.

See this thread (http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthread.php?t=18396) for more information regarding 3DMark05. Make sure you note the requirements before wasting your own time and downloading a huge program that you can't use.

I'll post mine as soon as it finishes downloading. :2gunsfiri

I've tried something new.How much can i score low using my PC because i've very low end machine & believe it i've scored just 11 in the 3D Mark 2005 benchie.

I'm using a A64 Mobile 3000+ CPU running at 1800 Mhz with GF 5200 FX
GPU.

FX 5200 is four generations old and predates 3D Mark 2005. It will not run most modern games, and is the bare minimum for those that it does.

05-01-2007, 02:41 PM
Are you making fun of my system? I've got a Fx 5200, but an 8800 is in the works.

As for games, it will play almost everything with every setting as low as possible and everything turned off!

Yes.

It makes FEAR look like the original Half-Life. It makes Half-Life 2 look like the original Half-Life. It is literally the slowest card that can be made to work with FEAR and Battlefield 2. It will not run Oblivion, Neverwinter Nights 2, Supreme Commander, STALKER, or Command and Conquer 3 playably or at all (in some cases).

An FX5200 is the weakest Direct X 9 card out there not including integrated chipsets, and it is simply not suitable for modern gaming. Sorry, but 640x480 or 800x600 with all settings at lowest only works for some games, and virtually no game is worth playing like that.

Well, I got a 5401 for 3DMark06. I knew it would be kind of low considering the GPU I got. I think I will try some OC settings and see what happens.

You should be able to over clock the crap out of it. At least up to 3 GHZ if not a little bit over..

Well, i just installed the ForceWare drivers 196.04, and on 3DMark06 my score jumped from 5401 to 5716. I'm going to OC a bit tonight and see what happens. I'm also thinking about installing the drivers 196.09 and see if that helps too.

Crazy what new drivers will do.

So after seeing my poor scores on 3dmark 05 and 06, I decided that I should try to tweak my system a little bit. I went into the bios and changed the cpu clock ratio to 8x and the cpu host frequency to 375 making for what I think is supposed to be 3.0ghz. I save and reboot and everything is ok. Then I restart and change the system memory multiplier to 2.
Next time it reboots it gives me the "boot from cd" screen and then says that it failed to boot. I have to restart again and set the 2x multiplier back to 'auto' in order to get back to windows.

Anyone have any ideas?

Kinda off-topic, so sorry for that.

You probably already know this but just in case..
Try changing the FSB first and memory timings. Go up bit at a time and test it. If it runs stable bump up the FSB more each time. Until it crashes out of 3dmark, then lower it back down to the last stable settings. If you want more out of it increase the CPU voltage. Just 1 at at time. don't over do it or you might fry it. then increase the FSB again. Keep an eye on the cpu temps.

I noticed my BIOS settings dident have PCIE enabled so all this time I was running sli in pci mode. no wonder my scores were low. lol

not exactly sure what I did, or whether or not it's any good to keep my system running like this, but at least my scores went up a little.. :P

Yes I know the memory timings are retarded.
