Alright... I used the demo.. version of 3DMark03... And my processor got a score of 1739... (I am not overclocking). Just for the record my total score was 5992... Which seems very low to me.I really hope that it is just being horribly bottlenecked by my GPU right now which is Radeon X1600/X1650 series.I have 4gbs of ram at... 667mhz :S. On saturday however I am upgrading my PSU and videocard to a 4870. Will this upgrade fix my low CPU scores?

why dont you see what your score is running 3dmark 06?
i will tell you right now that your planned GPU upgrade will definitely bring your score up. i gained over 12k points going from an 8600 to the 260.

I can try 3DMark06 but... Will it really make a difference?

[EDIT] It's like a 2 hour download apparently... Get back to ya later? :S

2748 was the score I got on 3DMark 06.... Doesn't that still seem a bit low? I've heard I should be breaking 3k easily on the E8400
