Im not doubting anyone's intellegence here, heck, I'll totally side with you fan boy. Its just easier if you have some background info, you can't just ask such a broad question.

I first heard the term overclocking on screen savers and it was something about how Intel was deciding to possibly make a specific chip (NO Clue as to which one at the time it was) that you couldn't overclock and screen savers was argueing the fact it'd piss a lot of people off, and now that I know what it is I'd have to agree.....sure would make me mad if all of a sudden you couldn't overclock the chips anymore, where's the adventure in that?

Yours isn't that far off beedub, and you gotta consider, 1. he's got a faster processer, 2. More RAM and 3. a graphics card that has 4 more pipelines than yours (yours does have 12 right in the X800 pro? or am I mistaken?) so I would say that would make up for the 8,000 difference between his and your score.

Good luck getting him to tell you that

He doesn't need to, it is public.

If he wants to tell me he can send me a letter...with that processer in it.
