    Benny do you bench with those specs in sig? You should have around 21k...

    My score was only at 3ghz...

    yes, it's the damn VC. The VC mem can't go higher than 342, and also it's 5:4 instead of 1:1 mem divider, so they're holding it back. Well, i'm still saving some money to get a pair of the best mem and VC (i'm not sure 9800XT will give that much difference, but we'll see)....

    yea, but think about this. There must be the need to "achieve" something in every individual. Benchmark numbers are just one of the ways to prove it. Yes, I do think the same way you do, but I can really imagine if I had the time, the resource, and of course the talent, I'd be one of them.
    So, I think the bench compensates the achievement. There may be also some advantages business-wise, but I'm not capable enough to prove this... :)

    The 9800 will make a big difference.

    BTW mine is also 5:4, and only 3ghz. That means my RAM is at 200mhz...an extreme bottleneck for me. Since you have a 600mhz jump on me I would think you could hit 21k....22k with better memory, and 23k with a 9800.

    yeah, i suppose so. it's just that i dunno whether a jump from 9700 to 9800 will be worth the money. But then, we'll see if i can do it "behind my wife's back" (I mean spending $400 would be a little too obvious to hide, right? :laugh: :laugh: :p )

    and 21k? that's gonna take a Vmod on the card. i usually suck on those things but, i may try in the future.
    thanx for encouraging tho :thumb: :)

    I don't think it will require a vmod.....reason I say this is I am only 500 points behind you with 600mhz less....usually 600mhz gives me a 2000 point increase...I would be at 20.6k, even with my 3200 RAM and video card heat (78c) bottlenecking my system....

    Also spending that much to go from 9700 to 9800 is pretty much a waste, I would wait until next year when the new cards are out.

    Gee.... i am totally clueless about that. The PSU, perhaps... i dunno, haven't got the time to open the case and do that stuff again. I'd love to actually :shrug:

    yea, R420 loki is all over my mind right now. But damn it's 6 months away...

    Get some good cooling on that 9700 and vmod it and you'll probably come close to 450mhz core like mine. It will definitely last you until the R420 is out. HL2 runs fine on a stock 9800pro so a 9700 @ 450 is plenty, even with all the goodies. No reason to spend $300+ on a 9800pro right now.
