Default Re: 3DMark06 Benchmark Results

I ran 3D Mark v.6 (the free version, which does not allow you to change settings). When it gives me my results it states 'As this test was not run on default setting the score may not be valid'. Is there something wrong with my system? Is there something amiss with the free 3D Mark? This result seems way to low for a system of this spec to me.

Open to all comments and suggestions.

Is that a DELL XPS?

I saw one today in the newspaper was using a 256mb 2600xt for $1400 (700) and I thought that was bad

Matching a Q6600 with the cheapest possible pci-e graphics card is just taking the biscuit, It serves no gaming purpose whatsoever with anything less than an 8800.

Anyway first try with my new card, e6400@ 3.4, GT@700/1750/1000
