Intel Core i5 2500k Test System

Before I jump into the games we tested, let’s go over what we are using in our test system. Our tests were done on a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 and our benchmarks were performed with no other background software running. 

Our AMD Graphics cards were tested using Catalyst 12.6 beta drivers and our Nvidia cards are tested using GeForce 301.24 WHQL drivers.
