Default 3dmark '06 - Low?

Image

7676 is the score that I got. Isn't that a little low for an 8800GTS? In the thread dedicated to the highest 3dmark '06 scores someone with a 7950, 2GB DDR 800 and an E6600 scored 8000+. What is the deal?

But that's not even Vista ... lol that's a skin for XP. Even I could tell that.

Dude - We basically have the same systems, I'll run 3DMark 06 on mine when I get home from work and see what happens.

Chances are you just need to reinstall your nvidia drivers or something, I dunno.

Not certain, but I think that the person that had the system that beat me was all stock as well. I cannot overclock because I do not have the resources to do so. I cannot drop 60$ on one of those fancy Zalman coolers, my case is too hot already, and if I do happen to burn something up, I will not be able to replace it. (I have no money after this rig!)


Here is the link for that freaking bomb-a$$ Vista Skin:

Enjoy!
