With a single GTS (vmodded) and a Q6600 I'm only 300 points away from dual GTX's and a Q6850

the only thing holding me back is a crippled B3 stepping Q6600. If I can make a run with 4.0GHz I'd definitely be over 18K for sure

Yeah....on 1280x1024.

Lets see his GTS give him a 15,000+ score at 1600x1200 or 1900x1200. I'm not having a go, I'm saying its a bit harsh to say he has a better system just because he can run a low-res benchmark with a better score. :happy:

Up alot more. The Dell BIOS allows my QX6850 to be clocked up to 4.66 before it wont boot for thermal reasons. At 4.66GHz, its still unstable though, can run the first scene of 3Dmark but it crashes. I can get around 10,000 in the first Graphics test though.



Remember its TEC Liquid cooling. Very effective. At stock...I can keep the QX6850 below 20c. (3GHz)

I still have a lot of trouble believing that. I'll believe it if you can show me a CPU-Z screenshot.

The reason i hate on dell machines is that i had to deal with them on a daily basis for over 3 years. After replacing literally 100s of hard drives and a minimum of 150 motherboards over a 3 year span, i cant stand dell for the crappy components that they use. And even at 1920x1200 SLI GTS512's are very comparable to the GTX at half the price.

If yall really like, i can crank back up to 4ghz and 775/1100 and run a 1920x1200 3dmark run when i go home for lunch.

My reasoning behind building rather than buying is that for less than half the cost i get 95% of the performance.
