3DMark06 Question


I'm wondering if my 3DMark06 score sounds about right for my system. Here are my PC Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit RC
OCZ Reaper 1066 RAM 5-5-5-18 2.1v
ECS A780GM-A AM2/AM2+ Motherboard with all BIOS updates
Raidmax Hybrid 2 550w PSU Crossfire Supported
AMD Phenom 9600 Agena AM2+ OCed to 2.5ghz
HIS 4850 IceQ4 Turbo 512mb 740/1100 (standard 685/1100 with vBIOS update)
Raidmax Scorpio Mid ATX (1 LED, 4 Standard 80mm Fans)
Seagate Barracuda 500gb 7200rpm Hard Drive

My 3DMark06 score is 10841 3DMarks. Is this about right for my system? It seems a little bit on the low side. My CPU scored 3231, my HDR/SM3.0 scored 5086, and my SM2.0 scored 4143 at default settings. I just built this PC on a budget about a month ago if that makes any difference. My graphics card temps never go above 55c, and my CPU stays under 50c. I could overclock this processor more, but its unstable at anything above 2.5Ghz.

  1. Yup that sounds about right, maybe a tad on the low side. But you are bottlenecked at that resolution by your processor. But no worries if you play at a higher resolution as that'll balance your system out. The 4850 is designed for higher resolutions, and more eye candy.
  2. Its right on for your specs. What do you expect for your "BUDGET" you get ehat you pay for.
