low score in 3dmarks 06 with 8800gt....
Jul 18, 2008, 7:45 AM
ECS motherboard "crappy"
2gigs DDR2-533 ram
I only scored 3447 in sm3.0
and 2440 in sm2.0
now im hoping this is because atm im on a Crappy ECS bored with 2 gigs of 533 ddr2 ram and my pentium D 920 is still running at factory clock speeds.
im waiting to get my 800 ddr2 ram(4gigs) in the mail so i can install my Gigabyte-EP35-DS3P
then i will begin the Ocing of the 920 and the 8800gt.

Google your ECS board's model & see if it's PCI-E x16. Maybe not. That'll hurt the performance. Also, the newer 3dmarks 06+ will take cpu & ram into account. They can hurt the score.

im pretty sure it has x16. im only scoring 1210 in the cpu area.
ECS p4m890t-m2 is the motherboard

Well i went to futuremarks site and looked for all scores of pentium D chips with a 8800GT running vista.
and i dont feel bad now. the highest was a 7534 by a pentium D 940 and 7000 range by a 930 so im right there.

Also, don't pay too much attention to 3dmark...it has a history of being rather preferential towards one line of video cards or another.
