Lightbulb SuperPi CPU benchmark

Thought the benchmark is a great utility to measure your CPU & o/c performance & how it compare to other CPU/RAM setups.
In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi and he collaborated with Dr. Y.Kanada at the computer center, the University of Tokyo. This record should be the current world record. ( Details is shown in the windows help. ) This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environment such as Windows NT and Windows 95 and called Super PI. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes within 3 days with Pentium 90MHz, 40MB main memory and 340MB available storage.

The software is free and the circulation of program is also free!

My scores so far :
1) Intel P4:3Ghz , 1.5GB (single channel) :
1M - 51sec
32M - 49m 10s (with some progs running at the background)
however on 1GB Dual channel i get :
1M - 47s!

2) AMD 64 4000+ , 2GB DDR400 dual channel :
1M - 35sec
4M - 3m 2s

3) AMD FX-55 , 2GB DDR400 DC :
1M - 32s
4M - 2m 44s

4) P4:3.4GHz (Northwood) , 1GB DDR400
1M - 44s
4M - 3m 39s

none of the CPUs/RAM was overclocked.

now lets see yours!
