    Phenom II x4 955 @ 4.0......................85.9 fps..............58.3 fps......

    LOST PLANET 2 DX11.........................TEST A...............TEST B........

    Core 2 Duo 7400 @ 3.8.......................50.4 fps..............36.5 fps.......

    Phenom II x4 955 @ 4.0......................68.3 fps..............56.5 fps.......

    3DMARK 2011 - performance trial

    Core 2 Duo 7400 @ 3.8 = 3918 points

    Phenom II x4 955 @ 4.0 = 5115 points

    On Battlefield 3 i play now on 1920 x 1080 at ULTRA.... No fps drops, no stuttering and so on.... everything is now running smooth as silk! :banana:
