Unhappy Underperforming System?

Firstly, here is my system specs:

CPU: Athlon 2400 XP
RAM: 1 Gig 2100 DDR
Video: Gainward Geforce Ti4400 @ 300mhz core, 650mhz ram
Vid Driver: Detonator 45.24
ECS K7S5A motherboard
HDD: 60 gig UDMA 5
Windows XP

Think thats all the info needed. Now heres the problem;

My system seems to be running pretty poorly in comparison to other system benchmarks I have seen. In 3dMark 2001SE I only got a score 9500, which seems pretty low considering my specs. Am I wrong, is this score right for my system or should I be worried? Any suggestions would be appreciated, and if I have been too vague let me know!

did you go to any tweaking sites and fine tune your bios and OS? That can make a HUGE difference.

Well, I have tried to obvious tweaks and such, but I am no expert and wouldn't really know where to begin to gain maximum performance benefits, any suggestions?

hmmm...no sure what else you can do with your system,..what tweaks did you do to your pc? how bout closing running programs and eliminating some startup items?...if you did all that and youre still not satisfied..get a bigger/faster cpu.
