Shataan, your score's pretty abnormally low. I'm running an Athlon XP 2800+ (no OC), 1GB DDR (dual stick, single channel) and a R9700 Pro, and scored a bit over 2800. If the shader performance in the GFFX series of cards really makes that big of a difference...wow, I'm glad I went ATi 18 months ago

And, ehh, yeah...with the system configuration above, I'm just starting to see games that are pushing my vidcard towards retirement to a non-gaming PC. Oddly enough, it's been an RTS, WH40k: Dawn of War, that's made me realize it. With the huge number of units and effects that you'll often see and all the geometry that's pushing, it's stretching my card a bit past its limits. Doom 3 didn't bug me because, at 1024x768 med. detail, you're not missing out on much, and I rarely dropped below 40fps. Far Cry always ran perfectly. Hopefully, I can get a new Athlon FX/shiny new generation PEG card/dual-channel DDR2 setup around Christmas, so my system won't get the crap kicked out of it by some of the upcoming games (Unreal 3, TESIV, I'm looking at you). I'm personally surprised it's lasted this long...shows how great the Radeon 9700s really were.
