Help GT520 Combined with Q9650 Graphics card V previous generation LGA775 socket cpu
Hi I appolagise if this has been answered before.

I have ordered a Nvidia GT520 my current system is as below

Motherboard ASUS P5K SE EPU
500gb Maxtor HDD
Nvidia GTX275
Intell Q9650\
Antec 750watt PSU

My question, can i expect a performance increase with the fairly large gap between the GTX275 and GT520 and will it run wow maxxed out (1680 by 1050 AA2x etc)

Also will it be possible to run both in my existing motherboard, for further performance increase.

You will see a performance decrease gt520 is'nt even in the same class even though the gtx275 is several generation's old now.

your sure, clock speed being faster and all that jazz as well as more ram

Also remember that even though my CPU is LGA775 final series, Q9650, it is the top of the range model cpu for that generation.
3ghz per core so = 12ghz all up

[i]Core speed indicates the CPU's operating frequency. Multi-core and hyper-threading do not multiply the frequency. 3x4=12 is incorrect; it is simply is 3Ghz across 4 cores. 12Ghz is an unobtainable frequency(for now).[/i]

So we must hand it over to our tame PC tweaker. Some say he sticky tapes a block of uranium to his dinner before eating it and that he sucks moisture out of ducks. All we know is, he's called Hooks.

Thanks. I am aware it is 3ghz per core. The Q9650 doesn't use ht technology that's P4 generation.

I meant 3ghz plus 3 6 9 12 per each core. That's where I meant 12.

Can I have some more feedback. Still knowing the 520 series exceeds wows min and max recc graphical rating

Because I am looking for confirmation.
I am not looking for a huge increase in performance
in wow. I already average at 70~130 fps as
standard only dropping below 30fps in times of extreme intense activity, but never below
20fps.
I have 6gb ram too. Will I or will I not however marginal see some improvement at intense times. I run wow at
1680 by 1050 shadows off texture detail high world detail high anti aliasing 2x you get the pic. All I want is confirmation however small the improvement

[i]The 520 will decrease the performance you had with you previous 2XX series GPU. They are not the same caliber of gaming units, simply by design.[/i]

Thanks but still not quite convinced with your answer. How about you actually go and look at the 2 cards side by side. The 520 is faster then the 275 by 1/3 640hz v 8xx more vram higher shader depth. Yes I know marginally yes bandwidth but when you actually bother looking you will see there are advantages however small

[i]Look buddy, I am trying to give you the correct answer. I am not being arrogant, but you suggesting to me to took like for something relating to computers, is like you telling John Carmack to learn how to write code. You have my answer, do with it as you will, and please don't ask any more questions that insult people's intelligence. [/i]

Thanks once again.

I appolagise for sounding stubborn about it before, but i wamted to make absolutely certain that there was no gain benefit.

I was also checking on the wow forums with Blizzard to see what they said.


What can you tell me about the ASUS Nvidia 550TIGTX on the above specs

(yes i have ordered and paid for the 520, ill find a seperate use for it, or resell it cheap unopened)
