I don't know what cause this but what I did previously is install bf2 and change a new ram. Is it the driver issue?

I would guess that it is due to the 77.x drivers that come with BF2. Try going back to 71.89 and disable Shadows in BF2.

So everyone has this problem right? Why no one ever talk about it.?

So everyone has this problem right? Why noone ever talk about it. I thought many people would bash it by now.

Most of us mainly care about gameplay framerates instead of benchmarks. If you can't tell a difference in your games, don't worry about it.

The most jump I ever witness was only few 100 marks. Is it really the driver's side effect?

Odd .. my 3dmark scores went up with the drivers that came with BF2 :) 77.30's I think they are.

When you installed the new ram it probably relaxed the timings. When I installed 2gb's of ram I was forced to go down to 2T timings and lost about 400 points.

Does anyone realize that a 600 point difference in 3dMARK05 is only like 1-2 FPS difference?

My new ram is even faster. So must be something wrong with my rig.
Alright, thank you everyone.
