thats about right for that card acutally. in 2003 the 9600pro was still considered low end. my 3d mark 03 score were 7668-8000 depending on my clock, with my 6800. you could overclock it to up the score a little, but really you shouldnt see a big difference. i would actually just upgrade the card itself, seeing as this card is really out of date. im assuming you have AGP graphics slot correct? if so, let me know so i can reccomend you a card.
