Think you should be getting a bit more than that,I'm hitting 20k with a 6800GS (agp) a crappy sempron @ 2.15Ghz and 512mb ram.

cuz hes afraid of getting a low score with that too.....lol i ran 3dmark01 and got 15559 with a nvidia 6800 and 1 gig ram, athlon 3000, and then i ran 3dmark05 and got 5559. you dont even want to know my 06 scores. o well my card is actually really nice. plays fear and oblivion on high settings. i just dont know why its so low on the benchmarks though, possibly because its 128mb ram and stock clock speeds??? so im happy for now.

I think a lot of people are afraid of being humiliated because of low 3d mark scores so they try an older version. If your card cannot run 05/06 at all then sure try and older version but otherwise just use 05 since it will make use of all the features of the card unlike 2001 which was optimised for the top cards at the time.

Also, who cares if its a low mark - its just a number! If it plays all your games fine then no need to worry

Most people on this forum know a bit about PCs so they upgrade more regularly than the average user, even the people who may think they have low scores will have better hardware than typical users who just get a dell every 5 years. But your never gonna get a higher score than the guy who upgrades every 2 months!
