SCROLL DOWN A TAD TO SEE THE NEW POST BELOW : I PUSHED IT FURTHER. THANKS~
Well, I decided to play around with my AMD64 3800+ today. Managed to push it to 2.52Ghz without any issue.( 210 FSB ) Just had to bump up the voltage by .025 to maintain stability and change around the DRAM timing a tad. As far as the 7600GT I ran the tests with ( 585 core 775 mem ) ( 1550Mhz respectively). This is what I managed to pull off >
3Dmark03 - 13556 marks // 1122 cpu marks
3Dmark05 - 6389 marks // 5429 cpu marks
3Dmark06 - 3226 marks // 994 cpu marks
Here are the comparison links.
So Im thinking the card is more so bottle necking my system then my system bottle necking my card. This is since I didnt see much difference from the hardware accelerated scores, more so then CPU scores ( by raising the FSB ). But all in all, hows this platform perform for a 7600GT setup?
Thoughts, comments ?? Thanks! Appreciate any advice.
