Default Kinda low 6800GT score: why??

After checking out some scores people get with benchmarking Doom3, I'm wondering why I'm quite a bit lower than average.

I set the options in control panel to 'application controlled', quality
Doom3 @ 1280x1024, high quality (8xAF, no AA)
Pentium IV 3ghz (Northwood) on P4P800Deluxe
Directx9.0c + 61.77 driver

Timedemo1
first run : 38.7fps
second run : 43.8fps

Seems a bit lower than it should be right? My brother has about the same system with a X800PRO and gets a higher score than I am (which shouldn't be right!) Any advice?

Turn off VSync. That's probably what's doing it, it will limit your timedemo FPS as well.

Yeah something amiss, I get 55fps on the second run with my rig, you should easily be in the 50+ rangee on timedemo1.
