You might want to add a small extra fan blowing over the ram chips to help out if u r using stock cooling.

If you plan on keeping the card a while you also might want to invest in some Tweakmonster BGA memory heatsinks. They might not allow you to push the RAM higher, but they should help keep it cooler when it's running at its limit.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Well..

http://www.nvnews.net/reviews/sapphi...pro/nvnews.zip

Basically, that's my Custom Icetomb Benchmark sans readme or nice packaging or anything like that (hey, so far, the only person who's had to use it is me).

Anyway, download that, extract to UT2003/system. It'll run 3 benchmarks--1024, 1280x960, and 1600. After the demo runs through, it'll dump you back to the main menu--hit tilde and copy down the FPS from there. Yes, nvnews.bat does run it.

Just as a reference point, here are some 9600 Pro scores with Cat 3.6 (not overclocked):

No AA/AF:
57.324
43.297
30.315

2xAA:
50.902
37.195
23.152

4xAA:
42.289
30.880
16.115

6xAA:
32.607
23.656
11.332

Now, AF scores are a little funky. If a few people could post their scores with no AA and no AF, and then go through the different AF levels, I'd appreciate it (tiny drop in FPS at 2x, but there was a bigger drop from going to 4xAF than there was from going to 2xAA).

Good deal, that confirms it. Just thought it was odd for 2x to take almost no hit in performance but 4x takes a much larger one.

Baron,

Can you write up a different scrip that would run the bench at 1024, 1152 and 1280x1024? Some of us don't have monitors that can do 1600.

saturn, you can edit the bat file if you want its easy, it looks like this:

ut2003.exe -nosound -1024x768 -exec=nvnews.txt ini=MaxDetail.ini userini=MaxDetailUser.ini
ut2003.exe -nosound -1280x960 -exec=nvnews.txt ini=MaxDetail.ini userini=MaxDetailUser.ini
ut2003.exe -nosound -1600x1200 -exec=nvnews.txt ini=MaxDetail.ini userini=MaxDetailUser.ini

just change the resolution, even delete a line(test), each line will start a test.
