Just thought that this was too useful not to link to! Appreciate that there will probably be a sticky or something with more of Phil's awesome work :D

Yes it's very good. I can confirm that the Quake 3 results look like they match up with mine pretty closely.

As you can see in Quake 3 the V4 4500 is a fair bit faster than a V3 3500. Which is why I like V4s :D

Also very cool work! :D nice to also compare the two slightly different setups used (i.e. P3 1.1GHz vs P3 933MHz) as I'm tossing up which system to put V2 SLI into - thinking it might be a Netvista around the 1GHz mark.

V2 SLI, unless you're gaming at 640 x 480, the processor speed at that performance level doesn't matter much :)

Personally I do like to go with a ~ 1 GHz processor because there are other benefits, such as faster installation or loading times that come with a fast Windows 98 machine.
