Default Help dudes? **** scores on the way

Hello people.

My rig is

Pentium 4 651 65nm 3.4Ghz @ 3.9Ghz LGA775 2mb Cache @ 40oc
2Gb DDRII Samsung (dont ask) 2x1gb running in Dual Channel 533mHz
250Gb SATAII Maxtor Maxline III 16Mb Cache 7200Rpm
MSI 7900 GTO 512mb DDR3 o/c 715core/1660Memory
Thermaltake Purepower 680W
Mobo- Asrock 775XFire-eSATA2+
http://www.asrock.com/product/775XFire-eSATA2+.htm

I know this rig aint much but I have been disappointed with the figures I am getting from it.

3DMark01 28,000
3DMark05 8600
3DMark06 6200
Aquamark3 86,000

What do you think is the matter? I used to have a crossfire setup (2X x1900) and I was getting Aquamark3 86000 again. What is limiting me. I mean I should be pulling better numbers. I think it is telling that I am getting such a low score on everything.

Cheers

tom

I remember on the 3dmark06 test getting 1900 in the CPU score

Any help would be Greatly appreciated

I would guess that your CPU is probably the limiting factor. Switching to a Core2 Duo would help a lot.

Maybe your experiencing a driver clash since you previously had a Crossfire setup.

Try using driver cleaner and reinstall the latest drivers.

Hope that helps... Also try searching on different forums that which drivers give the best scores for you card, that way you'll be able to get better results.

Both your CPU & GPU are limiting you in each of these benchmarks.
also use driver cleaner as Daydre@m suggested.

Not really, 3dMark05 is CPU-limited since it runs at 1024x768 resolution. 3dMark06 is more graphic-intensive.

not really. I think 3dmark05 is pretty gpu intensive myself.
