Hi I just installed the PNY 6800 I bought yesterday...My first thoughts are that it's not that much faster or better than my crappy ATI Radeon 9600. Much of the lag is gone from games, but I am still not sure if it's as fast as it's supposed to be. Like in NFS:U 2 - at 1024 x 768, full detail, one before highest AA, there is lag when smoke is there and just at random times....(according to fraps FPS thing, i average around 25-40 FPS. and sometimes as high as 50 or low as 17)
I did some benchmark, but I don't know what they mean so could someone see if they're good or bad?
I have a P4 2.8ghz, 1gb ram and everything else is in the links.
3DMark05 - score 3146
3DMark03 - Score 8690
3DMark2001 SE - Score 15862
AquaMark v3.0: 7002(GFX) + 8060(CPU) = 48, 827
Also, I think my temperature is too high. The GPU core temperature is 67-68 degrees celsius at idle and around 74 when playing NFSU2. I read people had around 50-60 celsius max...
I was hoping to overclock this card, but I dunno with this temp
I'd appreciate any suggestions/help. Thank you
