Question Problems with V9900/TD or FX5800

Hi, Having poor results in 3dMark 2005 when benchmarking the following system (a friend of mines!)

ASUS K8V SE Deluxe
1GB Kingmax DDR-400 (2x512MB Chips)
AMD 64 3200+
ASUS V9900/TD - FX5800+

3D Mark 2005 for this machine clocks only approx 800, whereas on my system which is more or less identical excepting the ATI 9500 Pro in the place of the V9900, I get around 1600.

Any ideas?? changed graphic cards over and scores are reversed...

V9900 is a much newer and more expensive card to my understanding, is this correct?

Both systems running 66.93 drivers...

Well all that I know is that the FX 5800 sucks with DirectX9, maby you should try the lates beta driver from the other form.
Use a Mac Mini now and have scuba diving sucking up my money.

Well, after browsing the ORB it would appear that 1600+ 3DM05 score with a 9500Pro would put you around #19 in the world, so that is quite an accomplishment. Most top 20 ORBers were using some sort of modified drivers, extreme overclocking, and likely had cards that would 'soft-mod' to 9700 (I'm guessing).
Having said that, 800 points is about right for a 'vanilla' 5800 at stock speeds. The FX line does not fare well in 3DM05 at all, however the 5800 is a more robust card for gaming than a 9500. In order to get a higher score, you'll need to overclock the card, but don't expect too much- I have a 5800Ultra in one of my machines that barely gets over 900 points at default clockspeeds...
