Testing - Gaming

Next I tested the rig for gaming. I decided that I wanted to use games that would really check out a modern gaming rig, with a multiple-core processor and a DX10 video card, so I chose the Crysis Benchmark Tool written by Boris "MadBoris" Vergiza, and the Call of Juarez DX10 Benchmark. Crysis, the popular DX10 FPS, is heavily multithreaded, and very memory intensive. I often use this benchmark when overclocking, it will crash a system that is the least bit unstable. Call of Juarez is an FPS in an "old west" setting. It is also heavily multithreaded, and has the most awesome graphics I have seen in a game as of yet.

I ran Crysis at medium settings and 1280 x 1024 resolution. Call of Juarez was at "balanced" settings, which includes AA x 2, and 1280 x 1024 resolution.

I was well pleased with the gaming performance. Even though the overclock wasn't much, I saw increased numbers in both games.
