I ran a few tests, do these sound about right?

3DMark03 - 20,500 ish
3DMark06 - 5310

Does that sound about right for the build in my sig without any overclocking?

Yeah that's about right.

I'm going to be buying the same video card you have. How is it?

3.2ghz is plenty fast. I had 3.6ghz which was insane. I don't see what those guys with x6800 at 4.2ghz do with that kinda power. I can't even get 60% load on my cpu @3.4ghz with all the multi-tasking i do and thats with one instance of F@H running in the background already taking up one of my cores (50% of the cpu).

Well i did get it to 100% load on supreme commander, but that was because i forgot to turn F@H off. I could have left it on though, because both programs were using separate cores. As soon as i turned off F@H, my other core went down to 0-5% (i also had azureus running too).

How exactly do I run prime95? I assume just use a torture test but which one do I use to test overclocks? And do i just use that and pcwizard to test temperatures to see if its stable?
