6964 is okay for a stock 7800GT, but with all your other hardware behind it, yeah it should be higher. But 7964 is a little high if you are running stock. Did you install all of your chipset drivers properly?

Oh...WinXP64 + gaming = nono (unless you're playing 64bit games). XP64 drivers are not mature nor optimized near as well as their 32-bit counterparts.

Get the 32bit version of WinXP and try it.

3dMark05 is so ATI biased its not even funny. You can't really compare ATI with Nvidia in 3dMark05 since that benchmark is just so biased for ATI.

mike4realz, how does your 7800GT perform in games? Thats what really matters.

If you ask me 3dmark05 is just a random number. If you're happy with the way it plays in games then just accept it. You've got a fairly top of the range setup, you got no prollems.
