lol dude...those power connectors are there for a reason. Your computer should get well over 10k in 3dmark05.
You can't just decide not to plug them in. Unplug fans, lights or whatever else you got in there.
As I tell people all the time, This is the power house to your whole PC...why would you skimp out there?
i scored 172 with my geforce FX 5200, hows that?!?!?!
Well considering the FX 5200 isn't at all meant for good gaming, and 3dmark05 is ridiculously GPU intensive I'm almost surprised you got that
