I think it's probably a combination of your memory and cpu which is holding back your GF4 Ti4600. Here is my result for the Athlon64 3000, GF4 Ti4600, Asrock 939 Dual Sata2 using drivers v81.98 so you can compare (btw before I upgraded to my current computer I was getting 11461 with Athlon XP 3200 and GF4 Ti4200):-
