Exactly what i was going to say. I think 3dmark is only a neat way of bragging. If your computer runs like you want it too, then it perfect.

thx for all comments. just ran 3dmark05 again twice and scored a little lower 7221. i just think this 3dmark thing is bul**** or maybe just the 64-bit environment.

as for the game performance, i'm happy wid it. especially hal-life 2. cs:source has greatly improved it's graphics after valve released an update for XP64 and dual-core optimization. now i just bought an extra gig of ram cuz 64-bit gaming are memory hungry. used up over 1gb of space just to play cs:source
