You can download the benchmark for free and run the basic version to see how your rig performs.

Mine did just under 30K without optimizing. More than enough to run most racing games fluently.

P29505

I just tested my system after i did the upgrade to Intel and scored P29081, Mad's system is just that little bit better, lol it must be the extra 8 gigs of ram :lol:

Hmm time to OC the cpu to 4 ghz 8-)

Grafic score = 32751 and CPU score = 21765

But now i have a system that'll be good for the next 2-3 years :mrgreen:
_____
Intel Core I5 4670 K, Asus ROG Maximus Ranger VII mobo, XFX HD 7950 3 gb and 8 gigs of ram

Graphics Score
30333

CPU Score
27271

So the 7950 has a 10% better score than my GTX660Ti...hmm :think:

My CPU score is a bit higher because i run it at 4.2GHZ instead of the stock 3.5GHZ.

If you use the ASUS overclock profiles and take one that can run your system steady without pushing it too hard, your score will fly by mine.

Any score above 20K total should be enough to run all modern games smoothly. And with the limits set due to the new consoles, you won't have to worry about upgrading soon®

Only if you want to go tri-screen and you need a SLI/CF configuration, that will be the big investment.
I don't have place for tri-screen now anyway. I do like it, but it is no must have for me now. Definitely something i will look into in the future. But now i'm more interested in going 4K. That will be the next big step. A GTX780 is a nice upgrade to get there :D

Hey guys, i just OC'ed my CPU to 4.2 ghz, which seems to have made my system grab another gear :lol:

Score before OC of the CPU = P29081
http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/5044752

Grafic = 32751 and CPU = 21765

Score after OC of the CPU = P30020
http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/5045109

Grafic = 33412 and CPU = 23012

So by overclocking the CPU i got another 1000 points out my system 8-) and hit the 30 k mark :woot:

Nice boost :rightthumbup:
I'm still waiting for the PC specs to be announced for The Crew before I decide on the GFX card I go for but as the game optimisation is one of the last things they do before announcing the PC specs I guess it will be a wile yet (one thing for sure when they do announce the PC requirements we will know the game is done all but the final tweaking) :D

Thanks, was pretty surprised by the impact of OC'ing the CPU 8-)

Why wait for the reason of the knowing the spec's of The Crew, when you already can see what the requirements of the next gen games are like?

I think the Nvidia GTX 770 is a safe buy .. but by holding out you might also save a few pounds .. if you can wait that long ;)

"If it were me then i'd prefer to have a tried 'n tested battle rig, and facing The Crew and the next gen games head on" 8-)
