that's actually a good score for sdram and a crap motherboard. try upgrading those two things and you could be getting close to 12000!!!

btw: how the hell did you get 3D Mark 2002? Typo?

Hey at least your PCMark score should dominate with that SCSI drive.

While the memory might hold you back some you wont get close to 12000 points by upgrading just the memory, nope. Its the gfx card that is holding you back.

On my system i get around 9500 points with default 3dmarks settings and I use fast ram.
these are my specs: Xp 2400+ 512mb PC2700 Gf3 ti 200 @ 230/530 and a GA kt400 mobo.

A friend of mine with a xp2000, 512mb 266mhz and a ti4600 scores about just above 11000. So Im 100% sure that it is the gfx card...

Is that the Jeway MB thats blues and has DDR/SDR slots? If it is had that MB but changed it for the board I have now, I was thinking price at first then went to quality

Anyways I did run some benchmarks when I had it and I can tell you that it is your motherboard that is the problem there. Changing nothing else other than the motherboard, gave me an extra 650+ points btw I was using DDR ram on the Jetway btw.

good score, much better than your first one

What have you overclocked your videocard to?

Here is my 8396 3dmarks on my 1800+ @1640MHz (now dead) with my video card @ 240/560

If you have not done this already, and do not mind "cheating", go to d3d properties and set the mipmap detail settings to best performance, and make sure that aa and af filters are off.
This will bring a score increase if you have not tried this already.
