Very Low 3dmark06 score Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: December 22, 2008 7:41 AM in Graphics & Displays Share lswon9 November 4, 2008 8:28:04 AM My 3dMark06 score is 5583, and according to the website my system should be around 11000?!! My specs are: E8400 3.0 ghz (Temp ~ 45°C max) Gigabyte 8800GT factory overclocked (temperature ~40°C max) Gigabyte EP35-DS3 motherboard 650 Watt Antec True Power Trio 2x2 GB 800mhz RAM (Transcend) I have tried different nVidia drivers, but same thing I also tested RAM using memtest86+ - no errors found. I also get the blue screen error "nvlddmkm.sys" only on Startup. Not sure if its a related issue? Can anyone advice what the problem is? Is it possible that the motherboard is faulty? Edit: What do the numbers on "PCI-E 2.0x16@x1" mean? Update : I think I just found the problem but not sure how to fix it. For 8800gt it is supposed to be PCI-E 2.0x16@x16. How do I set it to x16?

The setting name may be different so just have a look around in your bios. Good luck lswon9 November 4, 2008 9:49:37 AM My bios only has the option to set Init display to either : 1. PCI 2. PEG The default is PCI, I just changed it to PEG which is the PCI-E, but still nothing. Related resources Very low 3dmark06 score .
