Even with the cheap GPU my score seems REALLY low
AA/AF are quality-enhancers. The first removes jaggies and the second increases texture distance. I think. But that is a freaking low score, no joke. The quad-core itself gets about 1-2K.
Anything running in the background?
OK, go to Control Panel and then to nVidia Control panel. On the left hand side, go to Change 3D Settings. And set everything to application-controlled.
I might be off a word or two (not at right computer), but I think those are the steps.
