Just got a brand new GTX 460 1GB, and I gotta say...
I'm disappointed with the performance so far.
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955
Motherboard: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
RAM: 4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 @ 1333MHz
GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 460 1GB OC Edition (using 258.96)
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 TRX-750M 750W Modular.
Installation, etc... Went incredible smooth. Everything was going just according to plan, but then when I fired up Battlefield Bad Company 2, I was somewhat disappointed with the performance I was getting from this card (Everything HIGH, AA at x2, AF at x16, VSync ON, HBAO off @ 1600 x 900).
I mean, It's very playable don't get me wrong, but I was expecting A LOT more from this card, In fact, I was getting smoother gameplay from my old Radeon HD 5770 in this game, which is nowhere near the GTX 460 according to every single benchmark out there.
Now, Is there something I'm missing? Is there something I haven't done? like enabling or disabling settings in the NVIDIA control panel? (this is my 1st time using an NVIDIA card since the days of the Geforce TI 4600).
Please reply soon!. Thanks in advanced.
