I have

q6600 B3 stepping (running stock, but I have safely over clocked to 3.0)
8800(g92) GTS 512MB (Have been able to overclock to 720/1026 vs 670/970 stock)
850w thermaltake psu
antec 900 (plenty of air cooling)
ga-p35-ds3p motherboard
4x1GB crucial 800mhz Ballistix

I am getting 9kish to 10kish Scores at stock.

I feel thats on the very low end of what I should get. What Can I do to increase it?

Optimize your system, update to the best drivers and OC the Q6600 and GTS.

Ok, finally was able to OC properly and got 15k score. Comments Welcome :)

Well, enlighten us with what were you doing wrong before?

I dont know (I guess I was using the Gigabyte Utility to overclock :whistle:  )

I tied 3.8, 3.6 and 3.4Ghz

3.4 worked out well. But I think I'll just run my computer at 3.2 for the long run.
But I was expecting better Score from what I've seen other similarly clocked systems do.
