    I had a ATI 5770 and a Dell crap psu 350w and I decided to upgrade to a Thermaltake TR2600w and a PNY 460 GTX 1gb. Which was my first real upgrade experience and seems fine, but I wasn't real impressed with fps gains from 5770 I am only getting about 5-8 more fps with 460. Anyway what can I do to get the most out of this card in the settings or any other info/tips! Thanks for any info/help! Yes I have latest drivers.

    Overclock? Turn down your settings?

    Same things you would do with ATI.

    Some of the GTX460's can OC to 850/2000 (gpu/mem - shader clock is linked to the gpu clock)....but, you'll need at least 1.012v to do it....mine took 1.025v to maintain smoothness and not crash 3DMark Vantage.

    your 460 would eat the 5770 for lunch and spit it out.


    Resolution of your monitor?? What kind of games you play?


    With your card, you should be playing games @ least, bare min of 1600X1200 resolution, maxed out af, 8-16Xaa mult-sampling(supersampling can be used with old games), and basically maxed out in game settings(depending on the game).

    Hey thanks for replies but I just ran 3d mark06 and my scores went from 16000 with 5770 to 18500 with 460 I guess thats about right. I tried to run Mafia benchmark but using physics I couldn't get decent fps 40-30 and thats one of the reasons I purchased. Also in my other post I still have a couple Ati drivers could that hurt performance I get this info from Autoruns. Thanks Again!

    The GTX460 is nothing spectacular anymore.....nVidia appears to have given up on the 400 series cards in favor of the GTX580 (I guess it's release was supposed to magically fix the driver related issues with the 400 series??).....4 months....3 buggy drivers.

    What are your CPU and GPU scores now?

    You won't get decent performance using PhysX in Mafia II without a dedicated card unless you remove the npc clothing physics, which is offloaded to the cpu for some strange reason.

    Here's how to do it: http://physxinfo.com/news/3628/mafia-ii-demo-tweaking-physx-performance/

    I just leave it enabled on Vito only and the game runs a constant v-synced 60fps, smooth as silk on max settings.

    When buying a new GPU the first thing I do is apply some ammonia to the back of the GPU and get a paint scraper and get rid of all those unsightly circuit joins that stick out, scrub it until the PCB loses it's colour and is smooth like marble and it should be running like never before.

    3dm06 is outdated. It no longer accurately represents cards of today. Try Vantage.

    Hmm, I see, glad I didn't try it then *Put away supplies sneaky style*

    I mean, after I learned that putting a video card into a oven can fix it, I'm willing to accept there are other incredibly unconventional things about computers, so you never know...

    I'm glad you didn't try too, god damn I would have felt bad if someone ruined their GPU on my account.
