Which version of 3dMark have you run?

If that score is for 3dMark06, then it is low. (my system: 8800GT+C2D@2.7Ghz => 10000+ score)
If that score is in Vantage, I don't know, because I never ran it...

OC the crap out of your CPU if you want a higher score.

Yeah, I could do that, but shouldn't it be getting a higher score without OC?

3D '06 has and always will be CPU reliant and seems to favour the slightly older cards, try Vantage instead or better still, some games.

Opened case cleaned off the stock thermal grease and added my own.. I'm getting 14k in 3dmark06 now. I checked my temperature's last night and noticed the cpu was at 77 degrees C; now it touches 60 when running games but doesn't go over that. So I'm guessing it was a overheating issue.. I thought the stock cooler would be enough since I wasn't planning on OCing.. sigh.. anyone recommend a cooling system?
