Hi all. I just built a comp with my friends and after making sure everything was running smoothly, we put it through a test run on 3dmark06.
All the video card tests ran smooth as silk, but the 2 cpu tests were down to 0 to 1 fps, no joke! My specs are below, and I don't know a ton about computers so if anyone can guess what the problem is from my specs please let me know, b/c I don't think the 9450 should be getting such poor performance! On a side note, would running windows xp operating systems compared to windows vista affect a 3dmark06 score and if so by approx how much?
