    I think he was expecting more of a jump in performance between his old card and new card.

    Also worth noting that 3D06 is a DX9 benchmark, if a graphics card company already have enough performance in an old API then they are more likely to concentrate their efforts in improving the newer ones. Try some DX10/11 benchmarks/games.

    I havent asked why my score is a single number slower than heavily overclocked systems, OMG

    Telling me to chill out and stop panicking when I was doing nothing of the sort, I find that a little rude.

    I'm not gonna carry on this pissing contest, feel free to if you wish.

    He wasn't saying you were rude, but at the same time I can't see how any rude comments were directed at you (Dragonov)

    At the same time although Phazed's comments do have a firm basis in reality, they could have been put across less harshly.

    Other than the benchmarks - how quiet is this card? The more I look for a new piece of hardware, the more I realise how important quiet is IMO. Are you pleased with the noise aspect? Reviews suggest it's pretty good.

    I have one of these and I can say it is very quiet and very cool. Currently idling at 27 degrees max's out around 55 degrees.

    you can find stock scores on the orb though wu.. the problem is some don't even know about the orb for whatever reason and go by screenshots- they might as well use heaven.. it'll even tell you if someone is using a non approved driver/settings (like physx) to filter those scores

    I noticed most people on the orb run stock and they even give a graph to show where you sit.. like here's the graph for people with a 955 and 560ti

    it's really the only bench out there that's popular enough to do this and make it relevant.. about them charging to use it is another issue entirely- used to be free, but everyone gotta make a buck

    yeah, i know about that histogram of similar systems. but i've never really looked out for it. since if we go by that histogram, my system is usually in the bar under most popular rank.

    those scores are meaningless, see oneself in the part where most people lay, or slower, how does that help with actual gaming experience? as long as there is an improvement in gaming, then surely it's all good. (<-- point i think everyone was trying to make earlier)
