....you just claimed your 8800GT sli setup got you 24K in 3dmark06.

Now when someone asks for proof you are not able to show any.

Doesn't take a genius to figure out what's going on here.

Maybe if you get some LN2 cooling and overclock to 5ghz and got 8 4870X2s in Octo Xfire with 32GB of RAM you could get 50,000 in 3dmark06 and 250FPS in Crysis!!! THAT WOULD BE UBER COOLZ!!!

whats your problem? just to let you know JACK, that 18,000 is without the cpu score......

overall add another 6743 for my cpu score....roughly 24,743 is my score.....dont jump to conclusions.....

as far as me not listening, money was tight, what would you have done...went with a Q9550 and a 280 GTX now...

or get an i7 now with 2x 8800GT SLI.....upgrade card later?

pretty **** easy decision huh? so thats what i did...this poll is for a month or so maybe more down the road....

petes sake you took my questions to heart didnt you?

chill
Wrong, because you can't add up the scores...

You take the overall score it gives you.. the one in bold in h1 size

Big difference.

That said, it's a very nice score for relatively old GPUs...well done.
