Default 3DMark06 Testing?

Will changing the settings (res, AA) change my score in 3Dmark06? Is there a certain way I have to do it in order to get a score I can compare to those in the stickied thread?

if you turn off AA and AF you will notice a difference in your scores. as well as turning down the resolutions. but whats the point if you aren't using those settings during gaming.

So I should set up the graphics as I would with the games I play? I see.

If you want to test your configuration and give a score to this forum, then you will run it at the defualt settings it had when you opened it. If all you want, is to see is how well it runs with similar settings compared to games you play, then yes, go ahead and configure it however you like.

There should be a button to restore defualts. If not, it should restore defualts when you close and restart the program..
