3dmarks score is 8694. Is that very good for this system or is it underperforming? I don't know much of anything about 3dmarks scores. Thanks!!!

That seems really low to me. You should be around 11,000 with that build. I'm sure it's a driver issue though. Make sure your drivers are up to date with everything.

What CPU score are you getting? Seems quite low for that quad and GTS.. Make sure you installed motherboard drivers.

Yeah I have a Q6600 and a 8800GTS. I was getting about 12-13k with stock clocks.

Wait if you dont have the system how do you know the 3dmark score?

They posted it on the link I posted above before they shipped it.

Well you can change the resolution and amount of AA and that affects the score in 3DMark06. Different settings = different score. When we compare 3Dmark scores it is almost always with the default settings. When you get it test it for yourself with default settings and we will be able to tell you if something is wrong. Good luck, that rig is almost identical to mine and its great

Thanks a lot nkarasch! I will do that when I get it!

What is the test resolution? Are you setting 16X AF and 4x / 8x AA in your 3DMark06 test? If yes it is not bad otherwise it is not that good.
