Well thanks for spending the time compiling everything. My point was just that you were comparing CPU's, so to determine bottleneck you need more than one setting for your graphics card. I was just wondering if you did that or used another source.
Well the tittle of thread is misleading.Its not a true CPU scaling test.Basically bought rig to test some games and see if they play well on an older machine.

For the comparing part Iam just going from what I done with an I7 920 machine,but even that I always run trisli/trifire.Also compared from other peoples settings/reviews.

Maybe someone can try some benches same settings on I7 system and compare with the benches I done.

I would like to see some benchmarks from games that really need good CPU... ArmA 2 and GTA IV for example where 4 cores are welcome.

Not trying to trick anyone.
I just tested a CPU E8500 with a 480GTX maybe some people will say can I upgrade my video card without there being too much off a bottleneck.
I say yes,its ok to do this.
Core I7 maybe faster sometimes,post your benchmark and prove me wrong.

Sorry man I do not have them games,I am sure a quad core CPU would be better ,but by how much I do not know,I played arma 2 with 3 x285 GTX and it sucked and 5970+5850 and it sucked on a I7 920 @ 4.1 GHZ.Sucked as in bad FPS.

I think arma II was not even optimized for quads until more recently so performance might have changed.

That was what I was trying to say.

Really, I appreciate all the work you did and I know what you meant. But it's not a true bottleneck test, in the literal meaning of the word.

Still great work though. It'd be nice to see the same tests done with your i7.

Don't mind them they have way too much time on their hands.....
I'm not very impressed with the new or at this point in reference to the 460 old Fermi cards. My 8800GTX was pretty close to my 470's stats. Still hoping as the drivers mature I will see a big difference. Next time just put JFA in your title and they won't get so wound up...
