Pretty stupid but who knows... Are your friends playing on the SAME settings as you and in the same game? Or are you benchmarking with different setings or even in a different game?

And GF4 MX420 is a 64 bit memory interface, I don't know how that scores against a GF2 Mx 400?

Anyone else? It might be cheap, but it is the weakest Nvidia card by far at the moment.

the GF4MX420 scores like the GF2MX200 ... it is by far the worst GF you could put into your system ...

change that card (even if you just went to a MX440) and it will make a big difference
