I got somewhere in the 7000's with everything the same but my video card was at the stock 470MHz/1200MHz. OC that video card a little bit and you will see that score bump up a good deal.
my card is at 425/1053 right now according to everest. how much do you think i would need to OC that to get the score to "bump up a good deal", and would it be possible with my stock cooling?

The Rig:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
Corsair XMS 2GB (1GBx2) PC3200
BFG 7800 GT OC
Audigy 2 ZS
74GB WD Raptor/80GB WD Caviar
Antec TruePower 2.0

I think your CPU is holding you back. OC it to 2.4/6/8 GHz and your score should raise.
3Dmark05 score has little bearing on CPU power...FX-57 should only score a few hundred points more than a 3000+
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

Not 7000 flat. I said somewhere in the 7000's. I may actually have it written down somewhere..yup. When I had it at 470/1200 my score was 7649. Bumped my clocks to 520/1220 and got 8340.
