BTW I'm sick of people talking about penryn processors like its going to be 2x faster then the current quad processors. Thats BS, no one knows anything about their performance or even a definite release date.
I apologize I should be more clear with my statements. I BELIEVE that new quads will outdo current quad cores. I see no reason why they would put out a new inferior model. But you're right, I probably shouldn't have said it as if it was fact.
I am also running a GTS 320, not a GTX, and yes it's overclocked to the specs in my sig. When I ran 3d at stock everything (didn't even touch Bios) I was getting 10,096. When you overclock I would think you'll go up pretty high.
I can post the link to my 3dM test later on as I'm not home at the moment. I'm not sure what my cpu score was - I'm a noob to this. I know that I have an 8 multiplier on right now and 3d presumes it's at stock 9 so I'm sure that threw it off. I just learned this was an issue btw.
So with that in mind I need to re-run 3d. When I ran through the test the CPU part was only doing 1-2 fps. I thought that might be fishy. Everything else looked great though. Average frames were low 30's dipping occasionally to low and mid 20's while I ran it (at the hard parts).
