Those images just persuaded me to mod my Skyrim... I had no idea it can look this amazing.
I hope my R9 290 will handle it.

I never really had a chance to play through Skyrim.
Is there is a decent (minimal) list of mods that fix glitches and improve graphics?

Updated the list again. If you have posted, and you did not post your GPU clock speed and/or memory clock speed, please post them! Also, I'm glad to see I still hold last place! :D

I'm not sure why you've selected max FPS as the key measure, but you've left off my living room PC.

I picked the max due to it showing the card's max potential...in a way. The "score" for the Unigine benches are easy to inflate http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=13369 so I skipped charting this value.
The Min value is close to the min value for the Metro games. Just one very brief blip of low fps (almost like a low spike or dip) and this is set as the low for the benchmark, which in turn throws the average out the window.
So, whatever the system can do for its max, I'll chart. If anyone has a reason to chart another stat, do let me know!

Also I updated the chart with your HTPC.

I overclocked the 780 to 1162/1552.

Seems low to me.

OK Clicky:) here is my updated "2 560ti replaced with 2 EVGA 4GB GTX770 Classified cards SLI'ed" score with my older but still loved gaming rig with CPU and GPU speeds and overclocking offsets in EVGA's precision software alonf with ASIc % and you can see the boost difference between the 2 cards that is a good bit bigger then I though they would be. Note stock my cards stay at 1285 mhz boost on the 92.4% ASIC quality primary card and the secondary card stays at 1215 mhz boost at all times unless they break 79c .
EDIT: Boost speed is supposed to be 1202mhz "shrugs"

Ok here is my 3.5 year old 2600k at 4635 MHZ 103x45 @1.368v with a Gigabyte P67-UD4-B3 MB 8GB ddr3 1600 Cas 9 Vengence memory Powered by a Corsair TX850 PSU.

Graphics horsepower comes from 2 slightly overclocked EVGA 4GB gtx 770 classified Cooled cards using EVGA precision with +65 on the cores and +319 on the memory. Max temps is set at 80c and power is 111% .
Primary card ASIC rating is 92.4% letting it run at 1332mhz on the core and 1912.5 on the memory according to GPUZ with temps topping at 70c after 20+ minutes of heaven just running.
Secondary card ASIC rating is only 77.7% letting it run at 1267.3mhz on the core and 1912.5 on the memory according to GPUZ with temps topping at 59c. Also my GPU fans ramp up to %100 at 50c with my custom fan curve.
Even though these are true dual slot cards and my motherboard has 1 extra slots between my 2 PCIE 16/8x card slots that gives me a full slot of clearance between the 2 cards. The bottom 120mm intake fan in front of the PSU really help the lower card stay really cool as you can see. With my HAF922 case I have the 2 side panel 120mm Cougar Vortex fans on exhaust and it make a tremendous difference extracting the heat from the ACX cooled EVGA cards. This is why I do not like Cases with side panel windows and no option for side panel fans. But if someone had a Corsair 900d case that they want to trade me for my Cooler Master HAF 922 case I will start gutting my case right away:)

I ran the Heaven Benchmark at the Extreme HD setting with 8xAA @1920-1080p Heaven reported my primary core speed at 1371mhz and the secondary card at 1345mhz which I know is wrong. The above GPUZ speeds are correct.

Here's trying to keep up to your 770s with a pair of old school HD 7970s. Kind of warm today.. May fair a little better in winter.

GPU clocks ~1260 Mhz
Mem speed 1550 Mhz

Wasn't Unigine supposed to be a game engine? Did any company sign up to use it yet, or is it still not far enough along? Or did the devs just decided to use it as benchmarking software ala FutureMark?

I'm not following your thinking here. The max FPS is the least interesting metric to my mind and it even says that the overall score is a derivative of the FPS so you either trust the benchmark or you don't, you can't just say the max FPS is unaffected by any "inflation". Also that thread is from 2010 and is about a different benchmark suite, how much relevance does it even have to the Valley benchmark?

In my opinion you either trust the benchmark and report all the scores or you don't trust it and you use a different benchmarking suite.

Those are really nice benchmarks for one GPU. Thanks for posting.

It seems Nvidia has an edge in this benchmark, my score seems to tie in with a review of my card I found that tested in Valley so I don't think anything is wrong. I might try to push it higher later and see what I can get out of it.

When the Valley benchmark was new, Nvidia and AMD GPUs seemed to be pretty even. But more recently, yes, it would seem that Nvidia now has a bit of an advantage. Probably due to optimizations in Nvidia drivers since the GPUs themselves haven't changed (eg, comparing 7970s vs 680s a year ago, vs 7970s and 770s now).

That's me done I think. I seem to be right on the edge of instability with these tweaks so it's going back to my 24/7 stable settings now. :)
