K after reading reviews of the scores 8800gt has been getting is there something wrong with mine?
http://service.futuremark.com/orb/resultanalyzer.jsp?pr...

evga 8800 superclocked btw
4 gigs ddr2 ram pc6400
c2d e6400 stock
win xp pro

I dont OC anything.

hmm, thats wierd. Not really sure what can be bottlenecking me, and i think my processor is supposed to yield more points than yours ?

You can't seriously expect more numbers than that with a stock E6400???, crank that puppy up, trust me, it'll take it. ;)

Yeah, I was just going to mention that like the gentleman above me. You CPU is holding you back really bad. Only 1446 for CPU.

i see, i ran like games and such and it was great especially crysis was running around 29-30 frames on high with dx10 tweaks. If i wanna update drivers to 164.4 beta, am i supposed to remove previous drivers first?
November 1, 2007 9:20:01 PM

No the installer should automatically just delete and install for you.
btw ur cpu is bottlenecking you like everybody else said.

My advice would be not to concern yourself too much with 3Dmark scores. Although 3Dmark is a nice benchmarking tool it does not tell the whole story and it's real game performance that counts not some synthetic benchmark. Play some real games to find out how your card really performs :) 

My ATI 2900pro does not score to it's potential because of my 4400+ X2 holding back the score , but Bioshock and Crysis Demo play rather well so I'm not to bothered. To hell with 3Dmark! :D 
November 1, 2007 9:29:24 PM

But yeah, if the installer doesn't auto remove them for you...you'd want to remove them manually.

What was your score before installing the 8800GT? 3dmark is useful when you want to gauge your pc before and after uprgraded.
November 1, 2007 10:08:36 PM

Its your CPU. Overclock it
November 1, 2007 10:13:19 PM

thats odd, i got ~9150 with E6750 and GTS, OC the proc

Its not going to magically work with everything except 3dmark06.

f it doesnt score as high as it should in 06 you are guna get bottlencecked in games.

OC the CPU like everyone else said.

I've got 2 Dell boxes with the E6400 in them, both score 1840 on the cpu portion of 3d'06, if you're only scoring 1446, there's more to it than not being overclocked.
November 1, 2007 10:57:39 PM

My box is a Dell also (can't overclock)
November 1, 2007 10:59:27 PM

hmm, it has to be the processor i suppose. My score before was 4826...so yeah. OC would really help?

No
There is something else wrong with your setup.
Your E6400 and my Anthlon64x2 5000+ should be basically identical. Check this graph out and read the review:

My system powers through Bioshock, WIC and the Crysis demo without a problem with my lowly 4400+X2 and 2900pro. Real game performance is what counts at the end of the day not some 'I have a bigger e penis than you' synthetic benchmark. If 3Dmark was so accurate my 2900pro would be faster than the OP's 8800GT because my score was a tad higher, but it's pretty clear that the 8800GT is the better card in real games.Like I said it's an interesting benchmarking tool, but really shouldn't be taken too literally.

If the OP was a flight simulator X fan then I might agree with you, but the majority of games demand a decent CPU ofcourse (E6400 is decent), but more importantly really push GPU's to the limit.

its just like takinging an exam compared to being judged on it in a real life situation 3dmark is only a test its not a real life situation
November 2, 2007 7:18:22 AM

im getting around 13k on my 8800GT non-OC on a Q6600@2.66G

around 12k on vista32
November 2, 2007 8:25:26 AM

cpu.....
I think it's your cpu
then again it could be your cpu
or... your cpu
but then again your cpu could be holding you back

I think we can see a trend here
Nvidas cards depend on cpu power to an extent so if you have a slower cpu your card will perform slower... thats just the way it is :) 
November 2, 2007 12:40:09 PM

Wierd cus the e6400 still goes for like 200 retail to this day everywhere lol, I guess ill try to sell it for cheap and upgrade to a Q6600 for $279.
November 2, 2007 1:33:30 PM

Just OC it up to 3 gighz.. Then you're lafin guvner. (even a better cooler's gonna cost u a sight less than a fresh 279$ q660o - plus who's gonna buy the 6400 for more thn 100$? I'd crank it up to 3gighz and then consider getting a phenom or Penrym (wait till the bennchies come out) in a few months - then u'l av a killer setup.
Copper danglies.

I honestly doubt your system powers through the crysis demo.

So your saying my Anthlon64x2 5000+ is that much better than the E6400?
I don't think so.
BTW I paid $109 about 3 months ago for it

Yeah, you must be right what do I know about my own system and the Crysis demo :sarcastic: 

November 2, 2007 8:00:06 PM

It could be bloat on your hard drive, too many things running in the background, common problem with Dell's

Have you reformatted recently?

So many people overlook that...
November 2, 2007 8:00:11 PM

My 8800GTS and AMD 3600+ scores 9000+. That is with the CPU at 2.8Ghz.

If you overclock your CPU, you'll score higher. Make sure the Driver Level quality settings are set to performance.

Sure you could boost your score artificially or you could obtain it the way you would play a game.

That said my honest 7346 i got using the same driver settings i use for gaming.

I'd have to say something is up with that score, because your video card is supposed to trounce my 2900 Pro....
Same for that C2D vs my X2 3800

In that case. I would need to buy the full version, run at 1680x1050, 8x CSAA, 8x HQ AF and all the other stuff....
