Built new allround system but very low score!!! plz help
just yesterday I build my new allround system. It's stable and on the surface it seems smooth. But then when I run 3dmark06 to test my system/setup I get a very low score. I should be getting around 8500- 10000 with my system but I can't seem to score higher than 6500 :S and this really worries me because its too low!
I dont know whats wrong and why im getting these low scores, I get the feeling that something is causing a bottleneck effect but I dont know what exactly. Could someone please help me out ? Getting desperate atm PLZ help

Well, the 8800GS is the first thing to jump out at me.
If you bought that and the Raptor at the same time, that would be a mis-allocation of funds
Be sure to get the latest drivers from MSI.
Yeah I know, I got the hd raptor cheap thats why. I' m pretty sure all the drivers are installed.. but im getting the same score (btw my card is ddr3 not ddr2)
Perhaps your MB needs a BIOS update to recognize the CPU. You can go into BIOS and manually set the BIOS to use a Front Side Bus frequency of 333... if that results in problems you'll need to flash the BIOS though.
I went into my bios but my fsb speed says 333mhz there :S I dont know how to change settings in my motherboard bios ... Btw the strange thing is when I try to change the speed I cant, I have to enable or disable something else first http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=1393&maincat_no=1 this is the card's link I have a special option in my bios called 'cell core' or something to change speeds and to overclock, I also have DOT dynamic overclocking tool but that is disabled
