Hello all. As per title, I'm kind of confused - I decided with Crysis 2 out now, and still being unsure as to what GPUs to go for, I'd just plop for a GTX460 1GB for now, safe in the knowledge I'll easily be able to sell it on later. So I recieved it earlier. Its a Gainwood GTX 460 1GB GS (Golden Sample?) version. So I uninistalled the current nVidia drivers, and then rebooted, without internet connected, and then ran drivesweeper to remove all traces of GPU drivers. I then turned off computer, and removed the GTX280 and fitted the new GTX460 - Rebooted, then downloaded a new copy of the latest stable, 266.58 and installed it, then rebooted once install was completed. Once installed I then fired up L4D2, and it threw up a warning box saying it didn't recognise my card and therefore couldn't guarantee it works perfectly. I thought it was odd, but double checked and the card is configured fine, and recognised as a gTX 460. So I started it up again, and then set the video settings to full max at 1920x1080. It held the very same 60FPS as the GTX280 - It never moves from that, which I've always thought was odd given its up and down nonstop in other games. Anyway, I then fired up TF2. set it up exactly as before (max settings 1920x1080, full AA and the other one next to it ma?) and started playing. I'm average 20 FPS during gameplay. The GTX280 manages 40-50 with the same detail and load, in fact the settings are absolutely identical. I've even swapped them back around twice to confirm the FPS is correct. So my GTX280 is actually faster at max settings @ 1920x1080. How can this be? Is my CPU (LGA775 Intel Core2Quad Q8300 @ 3.36GHz enough to bottleneck the GTX460 GPU? I personally thought I'd need to be hitting a HD69xx to hit a bottle neck. I really don't get whats going on, or whether this should be right or not. Every bone in my body says the GTX460 should be better, but everything I try its slower at than the GTX280. Spec is in my profile, but is Asus Maximus-Extreme mobo, Q8300, OCZ gold 8GB DDR3 - which I'd have thought is more than enough to handle the full power of a GTX460. Oh PSU is a 3-4 month old Corsair HX750 so plenty fine enough for both cards. Any advice would be thoroughly appreciated, as right now I'm really not sure if these results are correct, or whether I have some issue or something. Might just return the GPU if it makes such little difference tbh.
