    Yes, that is a bit low... You should be around 12k points... I get over 10k with my Ti4400 and XP1700+

    What kind of motherboard are you useing? Are you useing the latest detonator drivers? What about stuff like vsync, and AA... Were those disabled as well?

    Side band addressing wont make a massive if even noticable difference to you score though...

    I think your score is right...very good

    with a xp 2200+ you can get much more.


    you can get 200-300 more by downloadin the latest drivers

    set your pci texture memory to atleat 21 mb!

    and download riva tuner to just tweak your card..

    grimfandango we had a thread about pci memory size and agp cards!

    PCI memory size does not make games etc run faster when u an AGP card!
    it even says that in my MSI geforce manual

    cheers for the tuner thing!

    Well on my MSI ti4200 if i dont set the PCI texture mem to Default (from the display control panel NOT Rivatuner as this is the proggy that causes the prob) my 3d marks drop by 4 - 5k marks...

    On the new 40.x drivers the PCI memory texture is a thing of the past.

    it can't even find that option anymore

    That score isn't right at all for the type of hardware he's got... I've got a slower card and slower processor then he's got and still scoring higher. There is something holding his system back.

    Have you tried installing the latest VIA 4in1 drivers???

    Ramon, you gotta understand - grimmy aint used to seeing big numbers like 9000, afterall she is only on mx200's... anything with more than three digits in the score and she gets excited
