what control panel settings are you using?

that is a bit low.. my system... stock with no tweaks gives around 4400... you should be around the 5000 level stock (4800-5000 I would guess)

check to see what your control panel has enabled (ie in terms of AA and FSAA) and post

You have the same mobo I just upgraded from. That is the best mobo I ever had. Never had a problem with it. Now it's my back up system that I am going to put together next week.

Everything is the newest driver and control panel. Is there a way to disable the AA? I stays on 2x. I set the slider to optimal performance.

I got it up to 4590 but it just seems like it's missing something.

all right... well if you want to leave it @ stock balanced you can do so... I get around 4200 or so with my sliders @ balanced...

turning off AA and FSAA I reckon you probably found that already.. just have to click the option to leave it @ application preference... that what I Do

your score is not too shabby btw..

tell me this... when you installed the video card... did you format the system and then install the cat's ?

I recommend using the 3.1's if you can all of them are extremely stable for me but I like the control panel that comes with 3.1 (and 3.2) better

3.3's should be out in a week or so

Cool. I'll give that a try. I did as you said and put the sliders at app pref. That is how I got that score.

This low score for the system bugs me because I usually get among the higer scores for my system stet up. Of coure I am usuall using a Nvidia card . I just can't seem to get the hang of this stet up.

I think Bu is right my memory is holding me back. I whent the cheap route and got the 3200pc oem instead of the nicer 3500pc and using Crusial or Mushkin. Oh well There is a huge difference in actual game playing BF @ 1280 x 960 with AA @ 6x and Aniso @ 8x and Texture and Mip @ Quality settings I get around 80fps on average. I doesn't dip below 60fps when the screen is busy. Me likie [IMG]

yah.. its quite possible you have some inherent bottlenecks

my score is 2nd for stock system with my cpu which is not too bad I don't think

but like I implied earlier.. perhaps there are redundant drivers still in your rig which are buggering your performance somewhat...

I'd say you should be able to get round teh 5-6k level with that rig, just make sure you dont have AA or AF enabled when you benchmark.
