Have yall' seen this? Tells you what your benchmark score would be with other graphics cards... based on your machine. Pretty cool. http://www.gpubench.com/gpubench/index.cfm/graphics-and-video-card-tools/

EDIT: Oh nevermind just saw the link when I scrolled down on that page.

That is really cool.. *.* too bad I don't have my Gaming Rig in yet for it to be too useful.

Does it really read the rest of your system? Is it slightly over estimating my current card's performance at 3.8 when I scored 2500 on the low bench? (I noticed the graph goes no lower than 3.5 though so maybe that = 1500/2000?...)

if it does I can double my performance with a $200 card... Definitely worth thinking about.

Because I am lazy and broke atm, I have yet to purchase a new card for my new rig. I am waiting till mid Sept to get it. Apparently though, according to that graph, I could squat down, drop my pants, **** into a plastic baggy, zip it closed, and then proceed to tape it into my PC tower, and it would boast better performance than my current HD4650

I think if you zipped it up, you wouldn't get as much airflow which wouldn't be much of an upgrade imo. You'll want to use some flush-based water cooling to really optimize it. That way every time it heats up, you just flush it.

Make sure you set all your case fans as exhaust. You really, really want to ventilate all that heat out of your case and into your room.

It doesn't read anything. You pick your card and you tell it what you got on the benchmark, then it calculates other cards' performance as a percentage and compares them to yours, so it tells you "Since you got X score with A card, you would likely get Y score with B card and Z score with C card, etc..."

You have to tell it what your score was with your card first.

Lol the **** thing is too funny. Sounds like what I should do with my 9800GT if I try to run it in 1080i.

The calculator over estimates the GTX295 a bit because of current issues with NVIDIA drivers on that game, or so I've read in various places. Personally, I think NVIDIA nerfed the drivers to kill GTX295 performance so they could market the 480 at the same price. But then, I'm no conspiracy theorist. :)

Was visiting this site recently and saw they added a thing that lets you compare graphics cards side by side... pretty cool. The final fantasy 14 benchmark calculator is still there though.

Their calculator is nonsense. I have 1 machine running a Core 2 Quad Q6600 w/ 4G RAM and a GeForce 9600GT that scored a 2200. It said if I upgrade to an HD5870 I'll get a 9k score. Well, I happen to have another machine running a Core i7 w/ 6GB RAM and with 2 HD5870's in CrossFire. That machine scored a 4.5k on the benchmark.

I think the benchmark utility itself is busted. Running in windowed mode has to ***** stuff up (it shows up hanging into my second monitor) and I don't think any of the scores coming from it can really be trusted.

Also, they give no indication as to what "high performance" or "low performance" entails. There are some people out there that think if they're running at 60fps, they're getting low performance -- they're unhappy with anything below fps. But this is not Crysis... this is an MMO. You can comfortably and happily play an MMO at 25-30fps. So if "High performance" is 100fps, and "low performance" is 30fps... then I don't care if I'm classified as low, because 30fps is fine in my book.

They probably did all their testing with an i7 or some other modern CPU which throws off the results if you use an obsolete CPU.


Also it looks like your Crossfire isn't working on the benchmark otherwise you'd get scores over 8000. (you need to hacked d3d9.dll that forces full screen and .exe renaming to get it to work with crossfire or SLI)

The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.


I thought of it first:
