It's your graphics card, 3d mark programs depend heavily on your graphics card.

I've never heard of a 2950, call me crazy but I don't think they were ever invented.

HyperTransport is automatically enabled.

You're processor is clocked at 2.2Ghz because that's the default clock speed of AMD Athlon 64 3700+. The way the Athlon 64's work, they need less clock speed to do as much as their Intel counterparts.

Just OC your CPU a little, thats a very nice CPU you have. I'm thinking maybe 14x multiplier with 200MHZ FSB, thats as fast as a FX-57.
