6800 GT, 3800+ Venice Score normal?
Heya, I just built my friend a computer heres the specs:

AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Processor (Venice) Socket 939
eVGA e-GeForce 6800 GT PCI Express 256mb
Liteon SOHC-5235K DVD 16x + CD-RW 52x32x52
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum nForce4 Ultra Athlon 64 Skt939
Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2PT 1GB DDR400 XMS3200 (2.5 3 3 6 atm 2.7v)
Antec P160 Anodized Aluminum Super Mid Tower Case
Ultra X-Connect 500w PSU
Floppy drive :P
Windows XP Pro w/sp2

It gets around 4987 Score on 3dMark 2005, Is this normal? Or should it be higher. Thanks :) Just wondering if you guys had any input or suggestions on tweaking it. I know that 3dMark is just a synth benchmark but he hasn't bought Half-Life 2 or anything else I can bench it on yet.

Yeah, dont worry so much about benchmarks, as long as games run smooth, your friend is fine. =)

Ok thanks :P I just wish I could have convinced him to get a 7800GTX :P But then it would have been over the $1200 budget.

Hmmm, the score is kindah low, but I had my 6800gt overclocked(which died; I broke the core somehow) when I got a score of 5441 :)

But why didn't you tell him to buy an SLi mobo? Then he could have updated his system a year from now...

Your score does seem low to me also, I got my current scores with a 6800GT at 415/1100, and you have 200mhz on me on the CPU.

He can't really afford SLi :P

In a few years hell probably just buy a new card that would be better then two SLi 6800 Gt's anyway.

Ok I installed all the latest drivers off of Msi's site and the latest video drivers, set the ram timings to 2.5 3 3 6 , 2.7v

Is there something I missed? :p Some kind of setting on the mobo? The Bios is different then what I'm used to on my IC7-Max 3 mobo, alot more options for Dram settings.
