Low 3DMark06 score

Last response: in CPUs

I just ran 3DMark06 on my new build, and the gpu tests were going great, but then when it ran the CPU tests, I got 1 or 2 fps for both of those tests. My scored ended up being 16937, but I believe it should be higher with the build that I have. Does anyone have any ideas or tips? My build is listed below

E8500 @3.8
Gigabyte UD3R
GTX 260 Core 216 oced slightly
4gb DDR2 800mhz g.skill black
XP 32 bit

Don't know about that particular score with the gtx 260 but its a good score. the cpu tests always run at 1 or 2 fps. nothing to be concerned about there.

ok, first of all, that is an INSANELY high score witht hat type of rig. normally, that type of configuration would be only getting around 12000-13000
i have a crossfire setup and an overclocked dualcore and im only getting close to 13000.

stop worryin about the 3dmark06 score and enjoy your games. benchmarks are benchmarks, they dont reflect realworld performance. run an actual game benchmark to figure out where your system stands. ;)

Yeah, I get good fps, I am just a numbers guy, lol. I'm glad to hear that I have a high score. Thanks for the responses all :)
