Slow 7950GX2! HELP!!!

My Comp:
-A8N32-SLI Deluxe Mainboard
-AMD X2 3800+ @ 2,5 sk939 with Arctic Freezer 64 PRO+AS5
-Geil Ultra X DDR 400 @ 500Mhz 2,5-3-3-8 1T timings
-EVGA 7950GX2 (stock frequencies)
-Seasonic S12 500W SLI-Ready PSU +12V1@17A, +12V2@16A
-Seagate 160GB ATA HDD

The computer is stable in Prime95 Torture Test and all programs and games that I run, but it's slow in 3DMark06. I get around 3000 pts. and 12 FSP in FireFly Forest without AA.
Is the PSU good enough. I,m not getting anything else for the comp that will eat up power.

Any help appreciated.

  1. I don't really know your motherboard very well, but I had a similar problem on my system.

    Try checking two things:

    1. Is the card running in 16x mode (if your motherboard supports that)?
    2. In the nvidia control panel check that the card is running in "multi-gpu" mode.

    It pumped up my 3dmark06 score from 6000 to over 10.000 :D

    Ya those 2 checks should help you out, but remember, multi display set ups remove the option to run multi gpu for certain situations.
