Went back through the bios and double checked everything, made sure the video card power adapter was plugged in. re installed the driver and set all the options to their default settings in the ATI control panel. Got my score up to about 13800. Thanks for the help everyone. any tips on how to improve from here are appreciated.
I just built a system with an xp2700+. A7N8X mo bo, 512mb pc3500 corsair memory platinum eddition, WD 80gb 8mb cache HD, and a Radeon 9700 pro video card..... and i can not get my 3d mark score above 8000! Can someone please help me out as to how i can get the most out of the system.
