Ok I know synthetic benchies arent all that important but I still think it means something
Just cant figure out why my 3dmark2k3 score is so low


3dmark2k3 score is around 7k with a Geforce 6800GT oced
Specs are as follows:

Intel P4 2.4c 800fsb
Chaintech 6800GT @ 400 core and 1100 mem.
875p Intel chipset
512 megs of DDR500
2xWD 80GB 8mb cache hard drives

Just did a fresh install with the card

Installed chipset drivers
Forceware 61.71 and tried 61.36 same results with both
Installed DirectX 9b

I dont know what the hell is wrong

Resolution on my desktop is 1600x1200
but in 3dMark its set to the default resolution so thats not the problem either

im at a loss

this may sound silly, but let you rpc sit and get cooled off and run the benchy wioth the side of your case off, so we can rule out anything heat related at all.

Hmm I think that 2.4C is really limiting you.

well i have it oced to 3ghz and the memory is adata memory

so i dont think its the processor limiting me

i see other threads where people have 2500+ bartons running 11k with their gts

Heh our bartons are running at around 2.3ghz from default of 1.83ghz, at those speeds its comparable to a p4 3.0c :)

Also what's your temp? Should be in the 55c range that's where mine is.

The 2.4c will hinder it some yes. However, its also a Chaintech card :baaa::

Did you run it at default with nothing changed from when starting up 3dmark03?

You don't have on the 8x AA mode do you? Or any AA/AF turned on for that matter? What you set in the Nvidia control panel overrides 3dmark03's settings.

Heh, I've done this a few times myself. :)

Setup an application profile for 3DMark while you're at it so you don't have to worry about it anymore (in case you forget or whatever).
