Here are my system specs I feel my scores may be a bit low tell me what you guys think...

CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ 939 @ 3 GHZ on watercooling
Ram 2 GB OCZ Platinum 3200 2.5.3.3.5 2T ( 200 MHZ stock )
Video ATI X1900XT 512MB Overclocked to 648 core 774 memory
Mthbrd UT Lanparty RDX200 Crossfireboard
Sound Soundblaster Audigy 2 Platinum card
Hard Dr 74 GB 10,000 RPm Raptor Pri
200 GB 16mb Maxtor Back up

Now on to my scores in 3DMark 05 I get 10,305 and 3DMark06 I get 5556 points... I feel my video scores are quite low for system specs.. Any thoughts is there any bottlenecks or is this the norm??? :? This may sound silly but I will throw it out is my CPU bottlenecking me??? Any feedback is appreciated

So far it seems fine my ATi Card runs really hot 90 C when playing F.E.A.R and the system seems to be a bit sluggish when it reachs that temp.. Other than that fine. Bf2 and need for speed don't get my card that hot though. Getting back to the subject I thought those scores were a little low for my system specs just a little worried that something may be wrong...

How can a 68 Gt score the same as the X1900 series??? Just wondering??? And second I looked into it the heat Issue Ati claims that temp is normal for these card... Thus the HUGE cooler that takes up two slots

your scores are fine. you video card is holding you back from a better score, not the CPU.

the only suggestion I would make is change your command rate from 2T to 1T (if you can). that'll add anywhere from 1-5% in performance.
