I had hoped my system would exceed 4000 tho honestly

This benchmark has sound enabled. I wonder if we disabled our sound cards if the numbers would increase. Main reason I am curious. I am wondering how much on my onboard sound might be hurting my performance.

I ran it in High resolution btw.

Holy Cow. After Running the benchmark again with my new Santa Cruz Audio. My Score went up to 4,110. This benchmark is also audio limited on onboard audio systems.

Ok Lets recap.

AC97 Realtek Audio = 3,715 Score
Santa Cruz Audio 4,110 Score

I guess I shoulda expected that onboard Audio to have been a huge bottleneck in games
