Default Re: Terrible 3DMark 2005 score... What's wrong?

I have to remember that it's only a benchmark!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have pretty much the same systems.....I scored alittle over 4500....difference is I used the 66.70 drivers. Give those a try and you'll see your scores improve. Also, remember to restart your system and then close out any un-needed processes before you test. And yes, it's only a benchmark..dont get all worked up, as long as your games run great, dont worry yourself. =)
