Yeah I was looking around at Futuremark in the Orb and theres a lot of people with 6800's that are listed at 11-12MHz and in the forums someone else had asked about it and he was told its a bug in 3DMark.

And as far as my low scores in 3DMark 2k3 - 2k6 I have fixed it. I un-installed all the driver chipset/AGP/PCI to AGP/NV drivers.....over and over today and ran benchmark after benchmark..... But on one of the total driver installs I must have hit the sweet spot. I really can't wait till I have the money to go PCIe. Because this sucked

But heres my new scores. All of them are way over what I used to get on my XP 3000+ system...

3DMark 2k1 22364
3DMark 2k3 13003
3DMark 2k5 5860
3DMark 2k6 2585

Not the greatest, but they are my best.

Those are really good scores for a 6800gt. Congrats.

Same here.

Do you remember exactly what you did? Done the same many times and my score in 3dmark06 is still 1200

Does your uli agp loction say pci for you? (When right clikcing and selecting properties )



My rig is
asrock dual sata2
amd x24200
geforce 6800 nu
3x512 mb ram

Hey I know you from PC Perspective I had replyed in your thread here..

http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=414860

I also saw where you quoted me at OCWforum.
Well lets see yesterday was long man. I was really getting mad at why in the hell my freaking Compaq Athlon XP 3000+ was beating this new A64 beast I had built on my own. But its just that some of the AGP settings are really flaky. One quick question for ya. Go into your control panel and look and see if you have a PCI to AGP driver. I found out yesterday that it is very important.
I did so many reinstalls yesterday its not funny.
What I would suggest for you now is to go download the ULi Integrated driver 2.13

And go download Driver Cleaner, google for it. Now un-install your nvidia drivers, don't reboot yet. Run Driver cleaner to get rid of all the nvidia drivers. next go into your control panel and uninstall you AGP driver, and your PCI to AGP driver. \\REBOOT// Windows will try to install a VGA driver for your new hardware... meaning your 6800. Stop it, hit cancel. Now install the ULi Integrated driver 2.13, you don't need the USB if you have XP SP2. But install all the rest. \\REBOOT// once again cancel windows from install a new VGA driver for your card and just install your new nvidia driver. \\REBOOT// and hopfully all will be well.
To the best of my knowledge thats about what I did.
Oh I also went into my bios and under the advanced settings, under the AGP setting I set it like this..

CPU NB Link Speed 1000MHz
CPU NB Link Width 16Bit
NB - SB Link Speed 1000MHz
NB - SB Link Width 16Bit

These settings were on "Auto" by default. Someone posted at PC perspective to set them as I did. I did some reading on it. And for higher end video cards its best to have it set like I did.

This worked for me....I hope it helps you. Good luck.

When I now go into my Device Manager, under System devices all the way to the bottom it now reads ULi AGP v3.0 Controller.

And before if I remember right it only said something like AGP Controller.
Also something else to set in your Bios is under advanced settings for Primary Graphics Adapter mine was set to PCI by default. So I set it to AGP.
I mean I am useing a AGP card.

ywytyr I have noticed you have threads every where about this. And I noticed your running Win XP 64bit? I'm not, I'm just useing reg 32bit windows XP. So everything I posted above may not help you at all.

Those are about the HyperTransport bus, dividers. (Incase anyone missed it)
if you OC the FSB/HTT to for example 250mhz from 200, you should set BOTH to 800, since that means a 4 Divider (1000 = 5 divider, 200x5) and you get 250x4 = 1000mhz, OCing you want to avoid going above 1000mhz on the HTT for stability..

Here is a 939Dual FAQ which is sortof handy:
http://www.ocworkbench.com/ocwbcgi/u...0;t=005271;p=0
That board has a special "AsRock" section with good info on this mobo (and other Asrock ones).

Thanks for your detailed advice!
No i am not running XP64, I just tried it to see if I managed to get an ok score there.
My device was listed as ULi AGP v3.0 Controller. However, when right clicking on this location is pci. Is that true for you as well?

I tried to follow your detailed instructions regardin the uninstalation process. But I only had agp controller listed not pci to agp. I got an error message when trying to unistall the agp controller, but the uninstallation process finished regardles.

When I now try to install the uli driver, agp drivers is not listed in the installation menu. I think windows try to install some agp stuff automaticly.

Remeber reading something about extracting the uli drivers exe file and do a manual install. Will look into this.
