AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2600+
512MB RAM
GeForce FX 5600 Ultra 128 MB DDR, 800 mhz!
Dets: 44.23

yes that is extrenely slow for that system. You should at least get 12k out of it.. Have you checked to see if AGP texturing is enabled? That sounds like its stuck IN PCI mode.

Don't expect much out of a 2600 under these circumstances...

Many a user has complained about this problem...

Drop your multi, raise your fsb, ond raise the clocks on that card a little...

Well I uninstalled my Nvidia 44.23 and installed 3D Blaster 44.03 and i instantly gained 2000 3D mark points, it as from 8000+ to 10000+,

But I'm having Hard time adjusting the FSB and the clocks from the bios Setup, is there another way to do it!

I've Downloaded CPuCool, but i requires Ntiowp.sys file and i searched everywhere but cant find it!
