Your video card is quite old. While the 9800 was a beast, current cards wreck it.



What would you suggest i look to get?


It depends what your system and budget can handle. Depending on how strong your power supply is, you may have to replace that too when you upgrade your graphics card.

You'll have to do some research to figure that out, power supply calculators aren't that difficult to find (though some are more detailed than they need to be), just remember that whatever your power supply says it provides, count on about 80% of that and adjust your math accordingly.

As for graphics cards, I love my GTX 670, but that's a pricey card. A 660 or 660Ti would probably be perfectly acceptable.

And before someone says it, yeah I prefer nVidia cards. No there's no particularly good reason for that.


As someone that prefers Radeon cards for no particularly good reason, if the 660ti is a little too pricey you can get a 7870 for $50-$70 less. Doesn't perform quite as well as the 660ti but it's close. That being said, the 660ti is a great card, if you have the means pick one up.

Only thing I am concerned about is the power supply. Will that be good enough? I honestly have no idea. :) if it means i won't have to upgrade my computer for multiple years again to spend a little extra, I am OK with it.

I would say bump up the PSU to a 650 or higher. The 500 should be adequate for your components (just glanced through them quickly though) but a beefier PSU will give you more wiggle room if you plan on upgrading in the future. Also, if you go this route get an 80+ PSU from a good manufacturer. Believe it or not, the power supply is the most important part of your rig, so get a good one Smiley: grin

I found a good article that says the Corsair AX series is a really good brand. That should definitely help in my decision making. Thanks!

Seasonic makes the Corsair AX series IIRC. Seasonic makes a great PSU so that would be a good choice. Definitely do some research and put your rig together, you won't be sorry Smiley: smile

Yeah, I definitely feel like the last rig I built from a few years back, I didn't put enough research into it. It has helds it own the whole time I've had it, but I am sure that if I would have spent a little more time on it, I wouldn't have had to upgrade it as soon as I am right now.

If anyone is feeling generous enough, could I ask someone to build me a decent computer, in the $1000-1500 range? can either post it in here or just PM me a link to what you have for ideas. Thats one area I am not very fluent on is building computers and matching stuff together. Don't need any monitors.

Why not get a PS3 or a PS4 if you already have PS3?

Only 1 because he's running at 720p. If you're hitting 20k at 720p, depending on what your bottleneck is, you'll be sitting at 13-16k at 1080p quite comfortably. I'm very excited to see how our scores change with the dx11 patch. As long as my PC stays over 8k with the dx11 at Max, I'm pleased. Smiley: smile

While I could bump up to 1080p without too much of a problem I think this goes back to the debate of 1080p vs 720p on smaller screens. Is there a huge difference at cost of a performance hit? I guess its personal preference. Either way I know that whatever I run this game at I wont have an issue unlike when the original was released.

I'm sure my bottleneck at the moment is going to be my cpu speed at 3.4 ghz but I have done stress tests at 4.4 ghz with no problems.

Something kind of funny: as I posted before, I got 4100 on surround. Well I have a 4th accessory monitor. So I figured if I disable that then my score will go up.
So I disable the 4th screen and run the benchmark again.... 4050

Yeah, Seasonic is pretty much the top PSU brand out there. Apart from Corsair, they also make the high end XFX ones.

Seasonic, Corsair, and XFX are the only 3 brands that I'd personally use.

I've had my Corsair HX750 for almost 3 years now, and it's been rock solid. It has a few more years left in it, but not sure if I'll have to change it next year if I do indeed upgrade my GPU to SLI 860s like I'm thinking to do. Gotta see how much of a power hog they are.

Yeah I love my Seasonic M12II 620w. It was really between that the Corsair TX650, but the Seasonic is modular and was on sale.

So my computer isn't really much to brag about. I was buying a house at the time my old one passed, so I just bought a prebuilt at Best Buy (I know prebuilt *Shutter*) But with a lower resolution and running the settings on low I think I can still play pretty comfortably.

So my computer isn't really much to brag about. I was buying a house at the time my old one passed, so I just bought a prebuilt at Best Buy (I know prebuilt *Shutter*) But with a lower resolution and running the settings on low I think I can still play pretty comfortably.


If you're looking to bump your performance you could get a big jump by just replacing that video card. You can get a 7770 for a $100 and it would boost your performance considerably.

You average 90 FPS and are rated to be able to max everything comfortably. Why are you looking to upgrade other than increasing e-peen benchmark numbers?

Some simple advice for general upgrades:

Look into lower latency RAM modules that run a higher clock speed.
Find a CPU with a higher clock speed as well as more cores (if possible).
Get a GPU with higher clock speed and more VRAM.
Look into better cooling options.
If you are comfortable with your cooling options and have good quality (by this I mean reliable and durable materials) components, consider overclocking.

I am running a quad-core CPU at 3.7GHz (4.1 when I overclock it). It is liquid cooled and even at full load runs well below temps that would start to be worry-some.
I run very low latency RAM however I am not overclocking it until I upgrade to an open-circuit liquid cooling option. I am also only running 4x 1GB modules atm. I will increase this to the maximum once I have secured a better cooling option to maximize the performance increase.
My GPU is an EVGA NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti FTW+ Edition. I could further over clock it, however once again I am waiting until I can liquid cool all the components with one system. At that time I will probably upgrade to a 7xx or 8xx series GPU (or whatever is current at the time) and get the liquid-cooling ready version at that time.

In the meantime, the only game I have found that can show me I can still use an upgrade is Civilization V, running max settings across 3 monitors on a Huge map once I hit mid-game.

My personal goal is to be able to do that and experience no-lag, and hopefully, less then 5 seconds between turns even once I hit the Future Era.

One big thing about upgrading though. Sometimes an upgrade wont be noticeable. All of the components of your machine work in tandem. If you have a powerful CPU that can handle a **** ton of calculations at amazing speed, you may not be able to see it shine unless your RAM can handle the load of sending and receiving information to and from the CPU. If your motherboards bus is slow it can also bottleneck your system. Maximizing the effect of an upgrade is more about balancing the system to handle everything at a relatively even pace. I once increased a PC's performance by underclocking a persons CPU. It's all very complicated but there is much online about really maximizing a PC's performance.

Still your score was excellent, even higher then mine. You really don't need anything at all for now.

FFXIV isn't RAM intensive. Unless you're encoding movies and rendering 3D images while you play it, you're going to get the smallest benefit from RAM. I do agree with the 2nd and 3rd statements.

The most important part of the equation is the CPU. Current generation GPUs are all bottlenecked by CPU performance. Just as a reference, my old GTX 480 was CPU bottlenecked up to the 4.1 overclock you mentioned.

Pretty much this. The only upgrade inside the case that you'll get obvious performance from is a CPU with a moderate overclock. Other than that your only options are outside the case. Mechanical keyboard, a better mouse, a better monitor... ect. ect.

That said, even if you do get a better CPU and overclock it you'll probably only see better benchmark scores. If the benchmark is accurate and translates to how well the game runs(which remains to be seen), you're not gonna notice if you improve your average FPS from 90 to 120.

I really do not understand this, If I go to settings in the benchmark program it lists my GeForce card, however, within the results text it list the integrated card. I think the program is running using the GeForce card, I just don't understand why this is listing the integrated one.

Any ideas?

You're probably right. It's probably just getting confused because of the dueling graphics chipsets. If you want to be sure, use device manager to disable the on-board graphics chipset and try it again.

Go to the Nvida software program and there should be a setting in there where it allows you to manually turn on the GPU for the benchmark. You should have the option to either use GeForce all the time or just for certain programs. Sorry I use AMD HDs so, I dont know exactly where you would find it.

Let me know if you need more help, ill hoop on my gf laptop and figure it out for ya

You're probably right. It's probably just getting confused because of the dueling graphics chipsets. If you want to be sure, use device manager to disable the on-board graphics chipset and try it again.

Disabling your integrated graphics requires one of two things, both of which will void your warranty.

You can:

1) Modify your bios. This is not as simple as simply entering the bios and changing a setting. You need to flash a bios which is not supported and voids your warranty. Not only that, but you can turn your laptop into a glorified paperweight in the process if you don't know what you're doing. I don't recommend this.

2) Use modified GPU drivers. This is much less dangerous in terms of doing damage to your laptop, but depending on the manufacturer; will also void the warranty.

Your laptop is just switching back and forth between the integrated graphics in times of low graphical load and the discreet GPU when the graphics are more demanding. This is normal and your benchmark is likely being measured while using your GeForce. The results page isn't graphically demanding so you switch back to integrated graphics and that is likely why it's picking up that info in your benchmark result.

That said, nVIdia's Optimus technology(what I'm guessing you have) can cause issues with various programs. I personally had issues with it while trying to play FFXI. POL would crash the moment that my laptop tried to switch from the launcher to the game. I also ran into issues where Steam would tell me that my GPU wasn't capable of running certain games because only the integrated graphics were being recognized.

I'd start by updating your drivers to the most recent(non-beta) version. If that doesn't solve the problem then just compare your scores to other people using similar GPUs. If the benchmark is actually running on your GeForce card then there is really no issue. If it bothers you or if you find that it's not switching like it's supposed to then your safest option is #2 above.

You average 90 FPS and are rated to be able to max everything comfortably. Why are you looking to upgrade other than increasing e-peen benchmark numbers?



Sort of, he wasn't on the maximum preset.

I really hate the way their scoring system works.

7000+ = max the game easily, yet the score you get depends on the settings the benchmark runs at - which makes no sense.

Run the benchmark on low settings and it will give you a much higher score, it's rather misleading since their scoring table seems to imply that 7,000+ means playable eon max settings, when in reality it seems that your score dictates how well you can play on the CURRENT settings.

Example. Laptop got 6257 on Maximum @ 1080P.

It defaulted me to "High Laptop" though @ 720P which I scored 8362 on, which states I can play the game easily on the highest settings, whereas my 6257 score implies otherwise.

EDIT: Switched to the settings he used and my score dropped much lower than usual - got 5506.

I think it may be due to screen resolution he used, it's not the native 16:9 ratio that my monitor is,

EDIT: Maybe not, I changed it to 720P and got 50.887 fps - very strange since I averaged 50.182 at 1080P on maxed settings.
Not sure why lowering the graphic settings isn't raising my framerate any. Laptop is plugged in, and on "Samsung High Performance" preset, wouldn't expect it to throttle itself for what it deems a light load, but it seems to be doing so, that or Optimus is deeming low settings to be so undemanding that its using the integrated card, whereas on max it used discrete.

So I was just playing around a bit and decided to turn off all shadows, the result were incredible on my score.

i5 760 @ 2.8
Radeon HD 5850

No overclocking on either. Did three benchmarks on each setting.

On max setting, give or take 5850.

On max setting with shadows turned down to Normal instead of high, 6150 or so.

On max setting minus shadows for me and NPC's, right around 5950.

Obviously it puzzles me why no shadows scores lower than normal shadows?

Any insights maybe?

I am super pumped, as my old rig scored 3500 on it's best day.

Can I ask which GeForce you have? I want to get a laptop for my gf for 2.0 but I'm not sure if a GeForce x60M or x50M will do, from one post I have a feeling a 640M will be too slow, but a 650/660 might be good... Maybe even a 750M.

Anyone else have laptop scores to share?

Thanks!

I really do not understand this, If I go to settings in the benchmark program it lists my GeForce card, however, within the results text it list the integrated card. I think the program is running using the GeForce card, I just don't understand why this is listing the integrated one.

Any ideas?

Running the 2920xm stock at the moment and the 7970m with a slight bump of 920/1400. I'll post results for 4.4ghz and 1050/1500 when I stop being lazy.
