    I just wanted to share.
    After a 2hr session of Metro 2033 @1600*900 AAA 16xAF,the GPUZ temp showed a max of 67 degrees C!

    Thats acceptable by any means and Kombustor or Furmark temps show only the worst case scenario....Isnt it?

    That's a acceptable temp but then again 1600*900 resolution is not that much taxing for the gfx card anyway - if you really want to stress test your gpu by running some game then try running those resource hungry games at 1920*1200

    Do you have AC in your room or else in summer season the temp will really go high.

    You are running your cpu at stock speed which is 2.13 Ghz but I think this speed is not enough to go with GTX 460 - have you noticed any bottleneck in performance of the gpu ??

    Though I would prefer corsair but from the specs it looks like CM 550W is better in +12V rating

    Corsair Vx550W +12V*41A = 492W
    CM GX 550W +12V*44A = 528

    CM GX 550W +12V*44A = 528
    Point noted.
    But from what I've come across in the reviews,the CM series use Sus'con caps rated @ 85deg C,whereas the Corsair VX series uses Nippon Chemicon caps rated @ 105deg C.
    Also,the ripple current on the 12V and 5V rails of the CM series are much higher than that of the Corsair series.
    Thats why I m in favor of Corsair. Wat say?

    N abt the gpu side,no i dont hv an AC,but neither did I hv any probs with d Radeon HD4850(it was a hot card too,remember??).
    And,I dont think I'll be gaming @ 1920*1200 soon

    How do you find if the cpu is bottlenecking the gpu?
    Isnt 2ghz enuf to feed the gpu?

    ^^ your GPU too fast. your ram is kind of slower (& less). proccy is way too slow to utilize the GPU fully.

    @ mukherjee - I would also like corsair for better quality but I only pointed at the higher +12V rating of CM's GX 550W - but I have not recommended it anyway.

    Yep, I can remember the red hot HD4850 - the heating probs was more with the stock coolers but if I can remeber correctly your's palit HD4850 uses a custom cooler instead

    Get a good cpu cooler Like CM Hyper 212 and OC the cpu to at-least 3 Ghz and if possible beyond that

    Congrats !

    CM Hyper 212+ ( widely available ) will cost you ~1.8k - you may have to lap this to get the best performance though.

    CM Hyper 212 will cost you ~2.4k or so - bought it last year at that price

    If you are planning to stick with your current rig - OC it and planning to use windows 7 x64 thgen get another stick of 2 GB DDr2 ram.

    BTW, in a 32 bit consumer grade OS like windows xp, vista or win 7 you will not be able to use more than 2.75 GB of ram anyway for mobo limitation even if you have 4 GB ram installed but in 64 bit OS the whole 4 GB ram will be usable

    So,it remains 2GB then,no 64bit for me

    Wont the intel stock cooler hold till a 2.4Ghz OC?

    Here is the 3dMark Vantage Performance numbers(my old 17" CRT somehow ran!!! )

    ^^ The test requires 1280*1024 resolution and a normal 17 inch monitor supports 1280*1024 resolution very well

    The stock cooler can reach upto 2.6 - 2.8 GHz - depends on the season ie summer winter etc. - I don't recommend anything above with a stock cooler.

    BTW, if you are going to use the stock cooler then load test your OC speed and temps using orthos/Prime 95 along with Realtemp or coretemp. Another good app is OCCT.
