That is the strange thing.....some games I can greatly tell a difference....some games I can barely tell a difference and some games I really can not tell any difference at all.

I guess that says that the games that are cpu dependent it helps...but games that are more GPU dependent, you can not tell as much.....however I am sure that it must help some...just not real noticeable.

I finally got the test to run....must have been a bad download....I downloaded again and everything is fine.

The results are posted in the proper thread

The results were very close to the same at 3.75 Ghz and 4.0 Ghz
