Hello All - sorry if this is in forum.....

Have just ran 3DMark06 and pulled in a score of 12950, my setup is:

Intel Q6600 @3.20GHz, Radeon 4850 512, 4GB G.Skill PC8500 Ram. - Vista Ultimate SP1.

I was expecting a higher score than this, am i just being greedy, or is this the kind of ballpark figure i should be expecting?

Reason i ask is i have swapped out a 3870 XT for the 4850, and have gone up all of 800 3DMarks - is that right???

Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

Stokie

CPU Score: 4730

Overclocked Settings

Well Videl, I just built this PC and sadly i got 1600+- with

Phenom II X4 940 3.0 OC 3.4
Gigabyte Mobo GA MA 790GP
4 GB 800Mhz G.skull

AND

2x 4890 In CF !

So im guessing this isnt what i need to get! i need something better then a 1600 right ?

You got 1600 on the overall 3DMarks? That's very low to be honest...Are you using 3DMark06?

this is the mobo im getting for the i7 is that good ?
July 26, 2009 4:35:44 AM

lol OMG it asked me if im older then 18!!!!!!
July 26, 2009 4:40:40 AM

That mobo actually looks good to me...seems like it has everything you would need.
Except one thing: If you're planning on running Cross Fire, you won't have any space for any other cards, like a pci sound card for example, as most cards take up 2 spaces. Other than that it's a great motherboard. :)

I'm just noticing that my unlocked phenom II X2 550 (Phenom II X4 B50 when unlocked) has higher scores than the 940 and 955...I was using XP 32 for the benchmark tests (I'm using Windows 7 64 and Windows XP 32 in a dual boot configuration) Maybe AMD was trying to make a better PII but it wasn't a big enough improvement so they locked two cores and made a powerful dual core CPU... :??:  Or maybe my scores are higher because I used Win XP for the benchmarks...because I noticed my CPU score was a little lower in Win 7 as well as Vista...What do you guys think? In any case I'm happy I have this $100 "home-made quad" :D 
Saved myself $145 :)

so you took your dual core and unlocked it into a quad core ? sweet nice money saving! and dont worry about it 3DMark06 doesnt run well in vista or win 7 because it was made way before them and the drivers arnt that good for them so XP would get a better score thats for sure

Well...At least I'm sure my CPU is as good as phenom II X4 955 (if not better)
Which makes me very happy...thanks for everything guys...

This is te motherboard !

Oh really...sorry
I think It's a great motherboard, it has everything you need and should run nicely.I like it, except for one thing:
If you're planning to run Cross Fire you wont be able to stick any other cards in, like a pci sound card for example, as most graphics cards take up two slots...Other than that, It's great...

Well the 940 is worse than the 955 only because it can't be overclocked as high...I think my CPU is the same as the 955 (or possibly better in overall performance, but again I really don't have enough to back that up)
But if by any chance it is better than the 955, then yes it's better than yours...you see what I mean?
I'm just sure that it shouldn't be any worse than the 955...
