yeah that is a bit low for your system. definately try some tweaking. head over to tweak3d.net

Is your card at default clock speeds? Because your friend must be thinking of some serious OC'ing. All the results in the 7300-8000 range on ORB are OC'd far past stock speeds.

Yeah, your score is about right for that system. My friend has a 1.4 GHz Athlon and a GF3 Ti200 and he gets about 6000-6300 at stock speeds. Your faster CPU will bring up your score to about where you have it right now. I wouldn't worry about it.

I get just over 8000 with a gf3 oc faster than a Ti500, my FSB was at 142 and I have a faster cpu, so no your score would be about what you could expect, just make sure your anio is off or 1x max 2x or 4x will really hit your score.

i instaled via 4 in 1 443

That could be your problem right there. Most people with 98 should use the 4.35's or max the 4.38's. Anything above is geard for KT333 chipsets and win XP... go back down and try it -- it can't hurt.
