Default Low 3dmark score

I'm using a pci 6200 until I get my replacement card for my 6800 and I wanted to test it to see what I would get in 3dmark05. I was expecting around 1500 since the card is a little over half the power of my 9800pro which got 2800 but I only get 580. I have forceware 87.25 drivers and according to rivatuner its running at the proper 350/400.
Is pci just to slow to run at those speeds? Or is there something else that could be wrong?

A Pci slot runs at about 1/8 of the speed/bandwidth of 8x AGP slot that is your problem.

I was looking at futuremarks website and it had some overclocked running up to 3100. It said n/a for agp so it might of been pci, though it was probably pci-e Oh well its just a backup card.
