Default Re: Horrible 8800 GTS 3DMark06 score. Help!

I'm willing to bet that it is your CPU that is bottle necking your new shiny 8800. I recently bought a 8800GTX and I suffered extreme slowdowns and low scores in 3Dmark06. When I replaced my Athlon 64 X2 dualcore 3800+ with a Core 2 Duo I gained more than 2200 3Dmarks and no longer suffered these horrible slowdowns .
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2,85 GHz | ASUS P5B Deluxe | OCZ 2GB DDR2 PC6400 | ASUS 8800GTX | Antec P180B| SeaSonic 500W |ViewSonic VP191b 19" 8ms | Soundblaster X-FI Extreme Gamer Pro | Hitachi T7K 160GB SATA2 + 7k 160GB Sata | Plextor PX-716A | Creative MegaWorks THX 5.1 550 | Logitech MX1000 | Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit |

My other gaming rig:
Pioneer PDP-436 FDE Plasma | XBOX 360 Premium
