New build - low benchmark - confusion :P Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: August 4, 2008 5:46 AM in Systems Share Lightbringer August 4, 2008 5:16:47 AM Hey all, Just got a question as to why my rig only benched 7987 3dmarks on 3DMark Vantage (latest 3D Mark). I am running a new rig that I put together a few days ago and have all updates... CPU: AMD Phenom Quad 9750 (2.4GHz) Board: Gigabyte GA-790FX DS5 RAM: 4GB generic 1066MHz DDR2 Graphics Card: ASUS Radeon HD4870 512MB GDDR5 PSU: CoolerMaster 650w eXtreme Power Duo (I think?) OS: Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit Case: Antec Nine Hundred I have seen E8400 intel chips with lesser video cards do better in the tests.. Just a little confused, is all.. Anyone know what could be causing this poor result?
