Thumbs down 8K seems low as hell!

I was getting 9750 on me GF4 ti4400 (300/702) on Bubbles with a tulatin 1.4@1.75 in 98se, 9500 in XP. (I'm always a couple hundred lower in XP...I just can't tweak XP as well! )

Default ...

me - july02: tbird1.33/kt266aSTOCK/ti4200-128/win98SE... 10.3k...

Check your ram timings... r u runnin @ cas2.5 or 2?

Are you overclocking? SOMETIMES it actually gives adverse results...

Is your install of your OS an old one, redone a few times over the past year or so?

Do you have buttloads of taskbar programs runnin?

Is your hard drive reasonably optimized?

Have you run memtest86?

Have you run PassMark Performance test or the Sandra Burn-In Wizard?

Are you running @ AGP 2x in bios?

Are your hard drive/optical drive cables hooked up properly so you're not accidentally kicking a HD to DMA Mode 2?


... check on that stuff...
