And, in Silent Hunter III, I got a slight hit when panning around the harbor before departing, just as I did with the old card. Perhaps they're not exactly the same hits in FPS, but they're very close.
You probably have to run a newer game from 2007/2008. Also, did you turn up all the graphics settings. The newer cards are able to run 1600x1200 and higher with fast frame rate, while the older cards wouldn't be able to. What CPU are you using?

I took the 4670 back to Best Buy. The fan went screwy, and it looks like others have had the same problem with the Visiontek version of this card.

give one of the 8 or 9 series Nvidia cards a try, I tend to stick with them, they release drivers more often than ATI does.
