Re: 8800GTS Slow?!
Quick followup in case any one else runs into similar issues..
Two problems were discovered.
First my motherboard was "broken". It did not have the correct chipset/configuration that should have been part of its PCB revision.
Second, agreed the 2001se score is more CPU limited than GPU, but in this case the FSB was running only 1/2 speed due to this Dempsey model.
This was not tied to power consumption, or insufficient current.
