Me and a friend of mine just put together a rig.
AMD X4 955
1GB GTX 460
4GB Gskill RAM
870-a motherboard
500 GB HDD
850w PSU

Everything works great, except I've got no sound during the Benchmark, I've got sound during all other apps. I've tried sound coming out of the speakers, out of HDMI in a 40", and 19" TV, works during everything else but benchmark. I tried redownloading the benchmark a few different times from SE and Nvidia. I've updated my Motherboard drivers, GPU drivers, realtek drivers, windows updates, and everything else I can think of and still cant get in to work anyone got any ideas?



I scored 2512 on High and 4083 on low do those scores seem low for my rig or on target?

I've got a similar build except a 965 and the gtx 470...got 4285 on low and 3372 on high so that seems about right, low being cpu dependent and high more gpu dependent...

I got nothin' on the sound issue though...

Seems about par for the 460. You could try a software overclock on the video card (if included), and a bios overclock on your processor, but beyond that i'd say you're about right.

Go download Msi Afterburner http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm
Then proceed to up the fan speed and overclock the gpu. If it starts to artifact with pink squares or strange colors, pixels whatever that doesn't look normal then you have too high of an overclock. The only way to increase the speed really far is to push more voltage through it but if this is your first machine you might not want to do that. The sound issue the only thing I can think of past what you said is to maybe reinstall the Directx9.0c package from Microsoft. With a decent overclock on that cpu and the gpu you can hit 3000 high easy imo.

I would get that error message too. After closing the window the Run/Cancel box would still be up and when I hit cancel I'd get that error. Don't think that's related to your sound issue...

Are you in windows 7? If so open up the sound mixer by click the speaker icon in the bottom right task bar and click mixer. Make sure to enable sound on FFXIV Benchmark or you will not get any sound. I get that same error message BTW.


Also just a side note, core i5 750, GTX 465 and 4GB RAM got me low score of 6000 and high of 3300. I wonder why your 460 scored so much lower especially seeing as how both Processors are very similar.

Those scores seem about right for your setup. I have the 965 (OC to 3.6 on stock fan) and 470 (OC to 800/1600) and scored 4300 high 4900 low.

What speaker setup do you have? Are you running sound to pc speakers or through HDMI? Did you hook up the "HD AUDIO" tiny little cable into the slot on your motherboard? Did you go into Windows > Sound options and select the appropriate HD Audio device and test it?

Lastly, check your motherboards website for updated BIOS and other miscellaneous drivers. Asus had one under "Audio" to update.

Hope this helps!

OP's scores are about right. I have pretty much the exact same set up: Phenom II x4 955, GTX 460 1Gb, and 4Gb RAM.

My scores are:

Stock clock
4120
2895

Overclocked
4754
3281

I think it has to do with the benchmark, not the GPU. It's already known that the benchmark is FAR from optimized, so I'd put my money on the line that the problem is with the benchmark, not the video card.

In almost all other games/tests done by websites, GTX 465 and 460 should perform similarly. I'm betting in the actual game (FFXIV) itself, the performance will be similar.
