Meh.  A lot worse than I'd thought it would be.    :(

Still, it runs MWLL at 5212 x 1050 beautifully.   ;D

Same CPU as me, that's why the score's so low.  It'll rate a X6 1090T at around 20k, even though it's effectively just as fast as our X2 550s in terms of Crysis (Wars)/MWLL.

I'm not really sure.   I installed CCC v3 (graphics mod for Warhead) so all my options say "Custom".

What level did you run in CCC. I cannot run it properly with 4 times the spec of your PC on very high properly on a slightly higher res. So if your running anything higher than Low, then it must be almost in single digits. If not, then seriously wtf, I want some of that magic.

30fps average is not running Beautifully, nor does medium settings look beautifull (But you can argue that's an opinion if you want.)

Either level 3 or 4 (most likely 3).  No AA in game. 

But you might be right on the second point.   Lower fps doesn't bother me as much.   But it certainly is above single digits, I can't tolerate below 25ish.  Becomes a slideshow at that framerate.

I'll have to run a benchmark the next time I play to see what my average fps is.   

Edit: Also looking at your sig you have a massively larger number of pixels and are running 8x AA.   That's a pretty huge performance hit.

5212 x 1050 against 5760x1200. Sure it's a bit more, but it's still three screens. And 8xAA does nothing. NOTHING to my FPS. Sure if I go higher it does effect FPS, only really starts getting retarded when I turn on the mega high settings on and they all do bugger all to the look of the game (well doesn't make it look better for me) But I could, and have tried maxing every single thing in Nvidia panel, and tbh, MWLL still ran just as well/badly as it did without the 64xAA and supersampling etc

Of course you won't be able to do that, I am wondering how it even runs playable >.< That poor graphic card must hate you rofl!

Just use:
r_displayinfo=1

In console of CFG. You can use Fraps (I think it is) to take an average FPS over a period of time if you wish.


*Edit*

Same CPU as me, that's why the score's so low.  It'll rate a X6 1090T at around 20k, even though it's effectively just as fast as our X2 550s in terms of Crysis (Wars)/MWLL.

And no. Just no. X6 1090T is an excellent CPU, AMD wise. Far better. That's like comparing a Intel Core Duo to first gen i7.

Even in MWLL it will matter. Clock to clock it's slower. Then factor in it's only two cores, MWLL/Crysis can use three cores if you set physics to another core. Not to mention maxing two cores when windows wants to use some processing power = no good. While all cores on the X6 aren't getting used in MWLL, the CPU itself is faster and better.

It's the same with Second and first gen i7. They are both quad cores, both have HT, but sandy beats the crap out of first gen i7 for playing MWLL.

My GC get bottlenecked in MWLL on one screen even with only ONE graphic card, and I have sandy! MWLL needs as much CPU power as you can throw at it.

Ha, just goes to show the Phenom 2 is a trooper.   :P

6850 is also a nice improvement over my old 4870.  It's not getting real hot either, even overclocked.  *shrug*  I'm not going to question it.   ;D

If we bothered with stock clocks around here, then sure, it's a whole 100 mHz faster. ::)

The 550/555/560/565 are all Deneb X4 cores with two disabled through binning.  The only thing the Thuban architecture (which is exactly the same as Opteron Instanbul with a different name for the desktop market) has over the Deneb is it's "T" (Turbo) designation, which is the same as Turbo Boost on Intel i7; an effective clock increase when only one or two cores are under load.  I'm not saying a dinky X2 is as good as an X6, just that in Crysis, you will not notice a difference, regardless of which core you assign the physics thread.  I've run benchmarks in MWLL on a 550 X2 and the same X2 unlocked to a X4, both on stock clocks and at 3.8 GHz (2200 HyperTransport), and there is literally no difference

Strictly speaking, the Deneb X4 will beat a 1090T in Crysis with either a single GPU or CF/SLI setup, either because they both share the same 6MB L3 cache across all cores, or because the 1090T actually has a lower stock clock speed, take your pick...there's a Tom's Hardware article on it somewhere, but I'm too lazy to find it.  An X4 Zosma (quad-core version of Thuban/Instanbul) will likely outperform it as well.

Oh it's a fairly good card for midrange. But triplescreen Oo, hardly :P Try playing something else triplescreen and it would die horribly, not that your PC is made for gaming :P I still want to know what FPS your getting, just intresting to know how much easier the settings are to run.
