to get best score... you normally reduce all your IQ settings....ie to performance/best performance or whatever the control panel says...

since I have not used any dets in the 3x.xx series and higher I am not aware of the other settings so I will let the experts help you out there :)

the less the IQ.. the higher the score should be... per se... in the range of perhaps a few hundred 3dmarks on 3dmark03... dunno what it would be on 3dmark2001SE for nvidia cards... my variance from performance to quality settings is not that great... so I just bench on balanced all the time...

and yes.. AA/AF should be turned off unless you specifically want to bench and check scores with it turned on..

Yuo turn everything off AA, AF, mipmap detail, texture sharpening and make sure more than anything that vsync is off.
