Default 7600GT and F.E.A.R.

Just finished completely building my system (except for 2 gigs of ram, that will come this summer).
Specs:
Shuttle ST20G5
Opteron 144 @ 2.12 ghz
1 gig (2x512) ram
250 gig 16 mb cache 7200 RPM HD
eVGA 7600GT CO 256MB

Ran the F.E.A.R. built-in cinematic demo, resolution 1280x980 (or whatever that resolution is, cant remember exactly) and every single setting at maximum, and got these results:
FPS:
Minimum: 22 FPS
Average: 45 FPS
Maximum: 108 FPS

FPS Distribution:
3% below 25 FPS
53% between 25 and 40 FPS
44% above 40 FPS

The 7600GT never went above 57 C, and thats in a very cramped Shuttle XPC case as well.

Just for those of you considering tiny cases and/or 7600GT cards.

It would seem then, that FEAR puts a lot of strain on the CPU, cause if I do the same (with a better GFX card), I only get 19-33-59, distr 9%-71%-20%. What the ****!

You're also using AGP interface, PCIe x16 has a much greater bandwidth.
But I'm sure it's also very CPU intensive for all those physics that are going on.

It will be nice when physics cards become more widely implemented and used to take the strain off of all cpus.

Keep in mind that not even the X1900XTX or the 7900GTX uses the full 16x bandwidth. Look at nearly all SLI Mobos with the slots running 8x PCI-e bandwidth. Even though I have a AGP card, it should and propably will beat your card in all benchmarks if we had the same CPU. Read some reviews. I have a 7800GT GPU in an AGP card, with the full 20 pixel pipes, instead of the 16 on the normal 7800GS cards. Man, I wish I had money for a new CPU, or at least a better OCing Mobo!
