Specs are as follows: evga x58 sli le e757 6gb ddr3 ram inno3d 8800gt 512mb intel core i7 920 windows 7 64bit On full load im at about 27 degrees and idle at about 16. Nothing is overclocked but still this is a quality machine why are people with only 2gb of ram getting 5x my 3d mark score!!

Can you post some links of your score or the comparisons? It is hard to say why without knowing what the "others" are running.

Guesses on Reasons why:
  • They are running an overclocked CPU &/or GPU giving them extra horse power.
  • They are running a higher end GPU &/or dual card setups. Your 8800GT is no longer the beast it was a few years ago. Running a GTX275/ATI 4890 or high will provide a much higher score.

    Having 6GB or RAM will not make a huge difference with 3DMark.

    Your driver might be out of date.

    SUGGEST TO OC THE CPU TO 3.4 NOT MANY ISSUES IN DOING THIS,
    CHANGE THE GRAPHICS CARD TO A 285 OR 295 ADD A SECOND HARD DRIVE AND RAID DRIVES AND THEN AD A SMALL SSD DRIVE FOR THE OPERATING SYSTEM
    THIS SHOULD INCREASE SCORE DRAMATICALY

    It will also increase the price by 500$.

    since we dont know what hardware you are comparing your computer too , Im just going to guess and say that the low 3D mark scores are because you have a fairly low end and very old graphics card that cant compare to the power of newer models
