Default hardware conf. ok?

Is this a good scroe for my setup? 3dmark03- 2026

a7n8x-x rev 2.0
asus radeon 9600se(oced 351/226.13)
kingmax 256 3200ddr so-dimm (
2500+ barton (oced to 3200+ 2.205mhz) 200x11
300w psu
stock cpu fan/hs
Windows Me 4.90.3000

All but the psu were bought new 1 month ago.

driver flies

Bios =
vc = 10/28/2003
lan = 11/27/02
mobo = latest drivers from asus like 3 days ago

I just oced today. This was my first major Oc job. Board runs cool at 36-38c, with full load on ghost recon 56c. I ran sisoft burn in for a bit and got as high as 54c. 3dmark03 gave me 1788 before the oc job. I ran 3dmark03 about 8 times, ut2004 and the system seems stable. I ran a utility to see how much power i need and it came out approx to 267watts before the oc. I am getting a new videocard/psu, and more ram asap. This vc was just to get me in the game.

Let me ask you this. Does it do everything you want it to do and more? If so I would say, you just answered your own question...

here is the link for the power supply unit calculator:


I think I'm going to surf the forums and see about getting some more out of my video. pcpitstop.com gave this card 476 mb/s stableand that was before the oc. My video games were loving it.

3dmark03 reports my system with the below stats. I am pretty sure I only have 9.0b installed and i don't know what to think about the agp rates.

AGP Rates (Current/Available) 0x /
