It's a bit low, but still within normal limits for 9800gtx. Did you update driver?

i think that your score is low. i scored 11194 with my phenom 9500 @ 2.5ghz and hd 3870 @ 800 mhz. as far as i know, the q6600 should be kicking my phenom ass, same thing with the nvidia.

Seems too low to me....

I have a E8200 @ 3.2ghz and a 3870...my score is around 11500.

have you patched 3dmark?
May 4, 2008 5:06:47 PM

Hmm, I'm only getting 3702 with my E6300 OC'd to 2.8GHz and my 1800GTO.

I take it video card plays a big role in 3DMark score?
May 4, 2008 5:21:27 PM

That score is about right. As of May 2nd I got a score of 12060

Pretty much the only thing that 3dmark will tell you is how good your graphics card and processor are. I wouldn't dwell on it too much.

Your a little low. Back the driver up a notch. The one your using is tweaked for 3Dmark Vantage, maybe its loosing some in 3Dmark06.
May 4, 2008 6:24:29 PM

Also, ATI cards tend to give good marks , doesnt mean the same going from one card amker to another, you cant compare. You need same and same, youre a little low but not that bad, like was said,driver most likely

Yeah thats really low man.... I wouldn't really worry though... everyone gets different 3dmark06 scores with the same hardware... for example I have a single 8800 GTS 640... and a core 2 duo e6420 ... And I get 12100 in 3dmark... so it doesn't really matter
May 4, 2008 6:35:09 PM

ya kinda on the low side, i have same processor and vid card, 2gigs of ram and different on the rest. and stock @ 3.0ghz i got like 14500 when i oc'd the card to the evga SSC speeds i got like 15200. Somethin is up
May 4, 2008 6:46:27 PM

i just installed the patch and i get about the same results.
hey braves00fan7 can u tell me ur individual scores for the 3 categories. so i can find the weak point.
May 4, 2008 6:50:16 PM

Does nvidia have it's own version of ATI's CCC where it forces AA etc...? Could be responsible if it does.

Yes, Nvidia Control Panel.
May 4, 2008 7:06:26 PM

nope it says its under application controlled so depending on the app.

hey i came across this http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/1335/8/page_8_benchma...
if u notice all games @ 12x10 resolution drop fps with the 174.51 driver and free 3dmark06 runs at 12x10 resultion maybe thats y i get bad results? i have the 9800gtx i think it might effect me to.

u want me to use the older driver for my 9800gtx
May 4, 2008 8:07:40 PM

How often do you read your inbox on the forum? :D 
May 4, 2008 8:37:31 PM

As long as your gaming is good, the bungholio marks shouldnt matter, as long as youre in the same ballpark

Yeah, if you can run Crysis on very high with playable framerates you are fine. You could try reinstalling drivers if you wish, though I wouldn't worry about it. This is a new build/new OS install, correct?
May 4, 2008 10:24:50 PM

yes its a new os im just gonna reinstall vista and the drivers if it doesnt work watever ill stay with my low scores. lol
thanks everyone for ur all ur help!

had a few things goin on in the background but that gives you an idea.. any questions just lemme know also i'm on xp
May 5, 2008 8:36:43 AM

thay are tow things
first : what is the sitting you chose if take the high sitiing just like high resolution and use high anti alysing this is maybe your score and i am sure this is you problem cuz high sitting give you low score try on 1280*1024 and no anti alysing use default sitting.
or : update driver and support programs just like agia phyix.
