Vegas ran not OK with A64 3700+ overclocked to 2870MHz, 2GB ram @ ~480MHz and factory oc'd 7900GT with 256MB @ 520/1500. Few tweaks and 1152x864 resolution was best gaming experience for my rig, 50-90 fps mostly (SP Terr Hunt...in pure SP I found myself at 25-30fps way too many times). I could not bare 1024x768 res....

So, I upgraded, first 8800GTS (yesterday). I could use 1280x1024 rez tweak and still had huge increase in fps, maybe 40% more !

Today I got dual core Opteron 175 installed. Set it to 11x248 or 2,72GHz and oc'd the XFX 8800GTS (Rivatuner 2.0 final) to 625/900:

Not much testing, other than SP Terr Hunt @ Streets, where I use fraps 60 sec bench.. I ran 2 times up/down w/o meeting tangos, and DUAL CORE gave +30% increase in fps (only tested with 8800GTS).

Posting the benches I've recorded:

Dual Core AMD Opteron 175 @ 2,72GHz
Frames: 8688 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 144.800 - Min: 107 - Max: 176 1280x1024 with 8800GTS 625/1800 AFx16, only blur tweak.
Frames: 8216 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 136.933 - Min: 99 - Max: 172 1280x1024 with 8800GTS 600/1700 AFx16, only blur tweak.

Single Core AMD San Diego 3700+ @ 2,87GHz
Frames: 6192 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 103.200 - Min: 71 - Max: 136 1280x1024 with 8800GTS 600/1700 AFx16, only blur tweak.
Frames: 4044 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 67.400 - Min: 47 - Max: 80 1280x1024 with 7900GT 520/1500, 3 perf. tweaks (AFx4-8)
Frames: 5028 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 83.800 - Min: 67 - Max: 99 1152x864 with 7900GT 520/1500, 3 perf. tweaks (AFx4-8)
Frames: 5697 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 94.950 - Min: 72 - Max: 115 1024x768 with 7900GT 520/1500, 3 perf. tweaks (AFx4-8)

My tip for upgraders: Dual Core, if you have gfx card that does WELL in other games.

Note..My rig played *ALL games WELL prior to Vegas

*FEAR, COD2 and Prey could lower my fps at situations, FEAR the most
