that is very odd............but the 3dmark thing seems pretty average....maybe u just have to 'work in' ur processor. Havoc has a slightly better Computer than u and he hit 11k with 3dmark 05.

What kind of ram? is it PC2700? If it is, its slowing it down. My rig gets me around 6500 stock on 3dmark05.

Dont worry about the ram, it wouldnt matter with the benchmarks. I got the a similar score with my rig and i think yours would be right considering that 3dmark05 doesnt take advantage of dual cores. Run 3dmark06 and compare it against others and youll have a much better score compared to single core users.

The reason Havock scored so much was because his cpu was overclocked and hes got a very nice gpu. Its faster and performs better than the 7800gt.

Are you happy with your comps performance? If so, benchmarks dont matter unless your trying to get the bragging rights.

you can also overclock your opty 170, if you dont have good cooling and RAM, get a TT Big typhoon (if it will fit in your case), and some good overclocking RAM, preferably 2gb, and overclock. I think PZERO got his 170 to 3.0ghz but im not sure, might of been someone else.

and how long have you had your 780GT, cause if it's EVGA and you;ve had it less than 90 days(i think) you can use the step-up program and get a 7900GT or a 7900GTX.

What're you guys whining about? Thats exactly the 3DMark05 score that a 7800GT should get.

And if you're starting at zero, then the score difference between the 7800GT and X800 on that other benchmark seems perfectly fine. Have your friend run 3DMark05, he'll probably get around 5K with the X800.
