I got a 1.33GHz Athlon
256 MB PC133
Hercules GeForce 2 Ultra
Iwill KK266-R (KT133A)
and I get 9911 in 3dMark 2000 after upgrading to the latest drivers (So darn close to 10k...I can almost taste it...)
So your score seems lowish. Try downloadin the latest nVidia drivers and the latest 4 in 1s, That should push your system to 10k easy. If that doesn't work, try getting a new mobo....That seems the only thing that could be wrong, I guess... My friend has a GeForce 3 w/ DDR RAM, and I was beating him until hte latest drivers came out, now hes edging me out (He doesn't OC).

I think I should play around with the settings more
maybe Ill get some results like that. I dont really
know. Can you tell me what resolution and color
depth you where running at. Maybe that will help
a bit. Oh yeah Im running the XP drivers.

Remember that 3D-Mark 2000 is a DX7 bench, so the GF2 Ultra outdoes the GF3 by a fairly good amount on that particular bench. Try 3D-Mark 2001, it's optomized for DX8 and the features specific to the GF3.

On 3D-mark 2001 I get 3400 with a GF2 GTS at 215/380 on a PIII 933. The GF3 on a 1.4GHz should get around 6000 I think, there are several people with the same card and processor who have already posted their scores in here. Remember that the scores for 2001 are about halved for GeForce 2 owners because so many of the test are not supported by the GF2, so your GeForce 3 should put you over the top.

Back to you Tom...
