Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit
Is these ok results to out-of-the box machine ? (although, I "OC".d graphic card to 750/974MHz)
Im little surprised that CPU score is so low, 2917? Its quad core processor..
I think that's about right for a stock clocked proc. Going from a stock 3.0 to 3.6 added around 1000 marks to mine. That 3850, while a sweet card for it's range, is also holding you back a bit.
And before a vista hater jumps in..
...my vista score is only around 200 points lower than my XP score.
All that said, don't judge your rig by 3dmarks...how are your games playing is what you want to focus on. If your getting smooth gameplay then you're doing fine.
