Yer your right guys. Sorry was just expecting bit more considerin if I spent about £80 more on card I get a lot more points.
However checking on graphics charts, score is about right. Ive lower cpu to around 3Ghz atm as it was abit unstable, dont think I got memory timings right.
Oh and thanks nukemaster, I changed temp settings now. After running prime 95 for 4 hours on full load, getting temps around 55-60C on all cores (same reading on coretemp too), also scanning for artifacts too and temp in CCC for X1950 is topping out at 79C.
Cheers Zorg as well, mines about the same score. To be honest I think vista 64 bit is holding it back abit as well as pherhaps drivers arent the best ones atm, maybe Im wrong.
I think that the OP's issue here is that the sub-scores in 3DMark 06 do not add linearly. Total score is not a sum of all the components. I actually have no idea how they are added but I'll save that for a google search on a rainy day...
My FX60 @2.94 with a 8800GTS 640 @ 651/1902 gets 9744. Guess money spent on a graphic card is proven again that it is well spent for gaming. My CPU score is only 2174. C2D/Q's with 4000+ CPU scores make me jealous...I feel the darkside pulling me! LOL
