    hi, just built me new rig (see sig) as a first time n00by :)
    i ran 3dmark 06 with everything @ stock and was only getting around 19,800 so i was told their might be a problem somwhere.. maybe the 2 gfx wernt working in Xfire ect :/
    ive just OC'd my i7 920 to 4ghz and ran it again and got 28,704 and with it OC'd @ 3.2ghz i get around 23,500 so does this sound about right for my rig? can i take it from these scores that the gfx are fine and the CPU just needed tweeking up? or should i still expect to be getting a higher score?

    thanks for help

    3d mark 2006 is crap these days.

    The score is pretty much dependent on your cpu rather than graphics.

    Use 3d mark vantage.

    That cant be right. I ran it was an overclocked Q6600/8800GT and gets the following

    P8027
    GPU - 6407
    CPU - 33191

    I have a i7 930 and a 5870 it is correct.

    My i7 replaced my qx6800 and at stock clocks the i7 is as fast as the qx6800 when its 3.8 gig.

    Is the 18679 cpu score with the i7 at stock then? I thought a [email protected] was about the same as an i7 or i5 at stock. Is my 33191 cpu score incorrect?

    My scores are with the pc all stock clocks all i altered in the bios was to set the correct ram speed and timings and turn off speed step.

    I have a old score with my qx6800 and 4870x2 and with the cpu at 3.6 i scored 3dmark vantage 13983 i didnt write down the cpu or gpu scores sorry.

    Isn't the high CPU score due to PhysX?

    3d Mark Vantage is my preferred choice.
