Default Re: What's the difference between the GTX 260 and the GTX 285?

I was not being a ass. I a simple question. And I did finally see a difference. Like in Mirror's Edge.

I was running a GTX 260 216 card. I was getting 3 frames a sec in this one scene. I had to shut off PhysX in the game. Now I changed out the 260 and replaced it with a GTX 285 SSC. The game runs sweet and that scene does not affect my game play. I have all the settings set to the highest and PhysX on. And getting 50 frames in that scene.

But from what you guys are saying it being cpu limited. I would not of saw a increase.

Now Ii tried GTA IV and with the GTX 260 I was getting 17 frames with the setting set to the highest it would allow me. Ever since I put the GTX 285 in GTA IV with settings very high and 4X even I get 30 frames.

I did finally see a increase in some games. And the cpu didn't stop the increase.

I'm not going to answer because everyone else answered it 10x already. It's you who refuses to listen. Why don't you put a 5870 in there and get another 3 FPS while you're at it?
