How do i ensure optimal performance?

Hi

I have recently bought this computer. I have newst drivers and direct X - and Win 7 is upgraded.

How do i make sure that i press every drop out of this spec? is there a test program, a tool or something to compare a score or something like that. I'm afraid I have used a lot of money on this pc, and maybe only get 80% performance

Thanks

Hello Wiking,

This is the most commonly used benchmarking program - Futuremark - Benchmarks - 3DMark Vantage - Introduction

As for getting 'every drop', highly unlikley.

You would have to be running Video editing, high end games with all eye candy wacked to the max and porbably continuos Folding.

Sorry but there really is not a lot of programs/apps/software that can continuosly push you PC.

Maybe someone could re-phrase me but... thats about the truth of it.

Make sure your firmware and your drivers are up to date.
Don't install things you don't need.

I get a 3 dmark score around 3600- 3800 in the not regged version of the program.

What should I expect? I see many test of the card saying about 12-13.000 ?

Some of the newer nvidia drivers were crap so you may want to test a couple to get the best performance. Which ones are you running right now?

Its a good system. The only way to ramp up the Primary hard disk is through the use of an SSD.
