Ok so I ran 3dmark06 expecting somewhere around 13k, but I got a 11312. Here are my system specs..

BFG 8800 GTS 512 stock OC
BFG 650i Ultra mobo
Intel 2160 OC to 3.0ghz (1.8 stock)
2Gb DDR2 800
WD 150gb HD @7200rpm
Rosewill 550w (36A combined 12v rail)
Antec P182 case


I am thinking that it is my CPU that is the bottleneck, considering the cpu test was really slow (0-2fps). I am running the latest drivers. What is with the 2k loss????

Nice score...

Cpu is holding you back, would get about 13k with a Quad

yea even at that speed your processor is probably holding you back. ive got a q6600 and a standard not factory overclocked 8800gt and my stock score is roughly 11600.

I figured that it was my CPU. Is that score good considering the CPU i am using?

New quad or dual core and you would hit just barely 13k.. I hit 14500 with the 8800GTS overclocked slightly.

Even a quad won't break 4FPS in the CPU test, it isn't supposed to run fast as the CPU is not designed to render 3D scenes quickly. However, even a fraction of a frame per second faster adds alot to the CPU score, and this will affect your overall score by quite a bit. I doubt you will notice games are much slower though, except heavily multi-threaded games (of which there are none).

Well if this helps when I had the card at stock clocks and my q6600 at 3.0ghz I did 13,700-13,800

at 3.6ghz on the cpu and overclocked card 15,700

check to see what your actual cpu score is and post it, that will give you a better idea of how much it is holding ur overall score back.

looking at the orb for a bit, i searched for core 2 duo between 2800 and 3200m mhz and for the most part cpu scores were between 2500 and 2800. a quad would help quite a bit, i get around 4400 cpu at 3.0 ghz. my overall score is a little over 13k with a gt overclocked.

overclock ur gts a little bit, youll get well into 12k easily. i saw an overall score of 16k+ with an e6600 at 3ghz getting 2461 cpu, but with a GTX. you should be able to do a lot overclocking that card.

EDIT: nvm, somethings up with that score i mentioned. theres a link to it below, his canyon flight framerate cant be right. i compared his score to mine and i actually beat him in the other parts or was within 1.5fps. but he gets a shader model 3 score of 12k+? can people hack 3dmark scores, forgive me for being out of the loop if thats the case. http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=2458884

Perhaps. You can save the scores in a project file that can be uploaded later. If one were able to find the scores in that, you may be able to upload a false score. I assume Futuremark would have some kind of integrity checking on the files though.

EDIT: I just noticed that in the link you provided above the guy got nearly 200FPS in canyon flight. That is absolute BS.

Yeah that CPU score is way low. Your systems running fine and honestly your CPU still wont hold you back in games very much if at all.

Nobody's aked whether the OP is using XP or Vista.

I have a Quad Q6600 and 8800GTS 512 all @ stock and get 11900 with Vista.

Haven't tried it with XP but would expect at least 1000 more and so should the OP if the original score is with Vista.

That will become less pertinent as drivers are further optimized, and as Microsoft continues to release optimizations.

Not trying to prove you wrong or point a finger. This just seem like a pertinent time and place to mention that. :)

Very true, the 3D performance of Vista is quite on par with XP now, just probably not in OpenGL. Synthetics are generally still slower though.

I am @ 12162 with the below system. You are in a great place.

Your cpu score is fine for an oc'ed dual core, your SM 2.0 score is low

I score 11515 with the oc'ed G80 in my sig ;

SM 2.0 5257
SM 3.0 5279
CPU 2690

HMMM,

Looking at some 15k scores makes me wonder why my e6750 at 3.5, and my 8800 GTX at ultra specs only gets me 12,300 on 3dmark06???
