You would be advised not to do it again, and if this thread were not so large and long running, it would probably have been closed as a result of your commenting that you have pirated software. In short, we dont want to know.
The 3dMark03 is designed specifically for upper end cards like the Geforce FX 5900 and the Radeon 9800. If you haven't noticed the Geforce 4 Ti 4600 w/ overclocking can peak a score of about 2000, but then you put a geforce fx 5900 on a system and the score goes through the roof! they have a normal score of about 6500 and w/ overclocking it can peak at nearly 7000. of course the Radeon 9800 w/ overclocking can easily peak at over 7000. I think you guys know what I mean when I say that THIS BENCHMARK IS POINTLESS IF YOU DON'T HAVE A HIGHENDED VIDEO CARD!!! GEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZ!
I seem to remember reading that 3Dmark2003 actually subtracts points for cards that cannot run the Nature Test (DX9). Basically, a GF4Ti4600 could score much higher if it had the hardware to run the DX9 portion. This true, Bigjakk ??
It wouldnt suprise me, i read a comparison article not so long back in which 3dmark03 scores were compared from a Celeron 300A with a r9700 Pro vs a 2ghz+ Ti4800SE system. The Clery system beat if not matched the 2ghz+ system blow for blow. This alone shows that 3dmark03 is NOT to be used as a benchmark for overall system performance, it is a test of graphics cards only, and in all reality, DX9 hardware gfx cards

That just doesn't seem possible without DX9 support. That's all I was talking about. He must have been talking about the 3DMark 2001 scores. If he was, though, that's a waste of a video card because I got a score of over 13000 on that benchmark, and I only have a G4 Ti 4200. Then again, I also have a 2.8 ghz P4 w/ 800mhz fsb and DDR 3200 memory, but that definately doesn't make sense if that is a 3DMark 03 score.
