Default What the **** is wrong with my Computer/Video Card combo? 3DMARK result

Before anything, here is a spec of my computer.

2.6GHZ Intel 4 HT technology
80gb/300gb internal HDs, one external 120gb HD.
1gb dual channel DDR400 ram
BFG 6800GT OC (default 370/1000) AGP slot

I have it overclocked to 400/1050. I experienced some serious artifacts @ 410/1100. It still shows some artifacts at current setting(400/1050), which I don't really care for.

I did a 3DMARK05 test on just today(with overclocked setting, all applications turned off), and here are the results.

3DMark Score: 4947
GT1 - Return To Proxycon: 20.1fps
GT2 - Firefly Forest: 14.3fps
GT3- Canyon Flight: 27.0 fps

CPU Score: 4000
CPU Test 1: 2.3fps
CPU Test 2: 3.1fps

Feature Tests
Fill Rate - Single Texturing: 3598.0 MTexels/s
Fill Rate - Multi-Texturing: 6010.6 MTexels/s
Pixel Shader: 156.8 fps
Vertex Shader - Simple: 49.8 MVertices/s
Vertex Shader - Complex: 37.9 MVertices/s

Batch Size Tests
8 Triangles: 2.3 MTriangles/s
32 Triangles: 7.8 MTriangles/s
128 Triangles: 25.8 MTriangles/s
512 Triangles: 61.7 MTriangles/s
2048 Triangles: 88.2 MTriangles/s
32768 Triangles: 101.9 MTriangles/s

Test Setting: 1024x768, Anti-Aliasing:None, Texture Filtering:Optimal, VS/PS Profile:3_0.

Games Playing:
COD2: I just use "Optimal Setting" that the game recommands. Works flawlessly.
Need for Speed Most Wanted: 1024x768 resolution, I can't max out all the settings because it'll create some lag. I lower the settings by a little, it'll run fine.
F.E.A.R: You know the deal. Nowhere close to max. FPS drops to like 0.1 if I do.

Can anyone tell me what the **** is wrong?

EDIT: Oh yeah, Nvidia Temperature guide always show 62degree. Under heavy load, it rises up to 72degrees. Is this normal? My case is cooled by two brand new fans, case side covers all taken off, graphic card cooler below the 6800GT OC.

Your score is fine, it seems your processor many be holding it back somewhat from what I can tell

Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w

there is nothing wrong with your 3Dmark05 score you scored better than the people at tom's hardware.

take a look!

just use the magical power of google and find out what average scores are.

You can't expect too much from that setup, especially on FEAR. The 6800GT isn't top of the line anymore. ****, my AMD 64 3700 @2.95GHz and 7800GT @ 515/1200 can barely hold up under max settings and 1280x960 res on FEAR.

Your scores seem fine for what you have. As Gaara said, its probably your CPU thats causing most problems.
