Default problems with my vid card

alright, i have a stock radeon 9800 pro 256mb. like a month ago I ran aquamark3 and got about 41,000 points. So i was satisfied with it and kept on using it.

Now i reinstalled windows because of virus problems and installed the new omega 4.10 driver and ran aquamrk 3 and what did i get? I got 24,000. I ran it like 5 times but all with the margin of about 1000. I reinstalled drivers, checked out my heatsink fan and all that but nothing was wrong. Kept on getting about 23,000~25,000 points. What could be wrong with my vid card?

Yea, you probably didn't install your mobo's chipset drivers.
