Windows 7: Help with my 480

Help with my 480

Right so i bought a 480 last week, i was useing a 4870 and i'm disapointed in the diffrence between them as i was expecting a lot more.

You think with such a massive upgrade i would notise the diffrence? well in the games i play on max setting's my FPS are about the same or less as the old 4870 and i can't really see any diffrence.

I'm useing upto date drivers: 258.96_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_international_whql(2)
and directX version 11

Also evey now and then while playing games my screen turns black for like 1-2 seconds changes to my desktop then back to the game, it only happens now and then some times i can play all day and night and it's fine, but when it happens it seems to do it like 2-3 times and then sorts it's self out, it's not over heating btw i have a Antec 902 and with fan's maxed i have never seen the card go over 85c full load..normaly idle's at between 45c and 50c.

Plus i built my wife a cheeper system and put my old 4870 in it and ran Heaven Benchmark and got these results:

I can't usderstand these results, also i run 64bit windows to her 34bit and my RAM is faster than her's mine is 1666MHz to her 1333MHz. How can she score so much more than me and have better Fps? it's the same in windows Experience my Graphics and gaming Graphics score 7.0 but her's score 7.4 can anyone make sence of this?
Btw nothing has been overclocked on these two rigs it's all standard.

The first question I ask, right after asking you to fill in your system specs, Is your PSU up to the addition power requirements?

My ASUS ENGtX460 doesn't run that hot max OC'ed.
No OC it runs 32C idle and 55-60C running AVP benchmark tool.


I agree with Ken it would help having video card info also. Brand and exact model number.
Screen size and resolution would also help.

The benchmark for the 4870 is running in DX10 mode with tessellation disabled. The GTX480 is running in DX11 with tessellation enabled, so the 480 is having to do a lot more work. Disable tessellation when you run the GTX480 and you'll see.

You're also running at a lot higher of a resolution on your PC compared to your wife's. Have you tried running WEI again? It's a pretty bad benchmark.

Windows Experience Index (score). You should be getting around a 7.6 with a 480.

I agree with Everylong, you can't compare a 1280x1024 score with a 1920x1080 score. It's not going to be close at those resolutions. Try changing monitors and see what your machine does at 1280x1024. And if you really want higher frame rates you need to overclock your i5 750 to around 4GHz.
