Well your question was worded in such a way that people would assume you where wondering why your performance wasn't much better with the 285.
Look on the boxes to see the technics difference.
Answer to your question. 285 is faster. Reason why your only seeing a couple of frames difference. Your P.C. isn't fast enough to see the performace advantage.

Logical conclusion. Sell the 285 or upgrade your P.C.

Ask for help and then be a bit of an ass about it, nice.

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?

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.

If you saw any massive increases going from a 260 216 to a 285 it must have been a bug or a fluke. The 285 isn't that much faster. Probably around 15%.

And the performance increase will be far less on your system because your CPU is such a bottle neck.

I finally am going to change it. I got a deal on Q6600/abit 35-e/ 2gb 1066 ddr2. Will have in a week or so. And I will add at lease another 2 gig of ram. I will bench and see what difference there will be.

Talking about cpu limiting, how much card could a Phenom II x4 945 3Ghz running w7 with 8Gb of ram handle?

CPU heavy games will probably be CPU limited with most high end graphics cards but you shouldn't have any real performance problems unless you're really picky.

In most games the performance is comparable to a stock Core 2 Quad Q9450 @ 2.66Ghz.

Overclock that thing.
