My System Specs

Default Graphics benchmark software.

What is the standard test(s) to benchmark graphics cards nowadays? I have 3DMark Vantage but it seems to lock up when I run it. I have 197.45 drivers installed and want to see the difference from my GTX275 to my GTX470. (of course I will install the 197.41 with the GTX470)

There is no real "standard" but I would use Unigine (DX10 in the case of the GTX 275) and possibly the Stone Giant benchmark.

Unigine Heaven benchmark locks up also....

D3DIO AppWindow::do_swap0:device removed. Seems I am not stable somewhere.

Yup, you have stability issues sir. Check temps and ensure you aren't running an older version of EVGA Precision, GPU-Z or MSI Afterburner. Even if you uninstalled any of those programs, make sure their directories are also deleted in your Program Files folder.

Preliminary results moving from GTX 275 to GTX 470 using Unigine Heaven benchmark:

GTX 275 @ stock settings with Unigine at the default settings+DX10-fps 16.4-score 413
GTX 470 @ stock settings with Unigine at the default settings+DX10-fps 62.9-score 1585
GTX 470 @ stock settings with Unigine at the default settings+DX11-fps 47.6-score 1200

Not really sure why the difference is so high!

I am not much of a gamer but Counterstrike with almost all settings at high showed 250 + - fps most of the time.
