    About right. 3d 06 likes dual core cpus. I get about 5,350 with a 2.8gig opty and a 1900xt @ 675/785 edit

    Isn't 575/585 below X1900XT clocks? :confused:

    Original Poster: Which 3dmark is this about? For 06 that seems reasonable, perhaps on the low side. Are you running with any AA or AF? What screen resolution are you running with?

    I think that 3D Mark scores increase with Catalyst A.I. set to off. Give it a try.

    I'd say that looks about right. I get 4500 on 06 with a 3700@2.75GHz and an X1800XT@PE speeds...

    Seems low, but I think, as someone has already said, a dual core cpu make a big difference in '06. I get just under 5600 with my 7900GT and an X2 @ 2.5ghz. I think that '06 favours the nvidia cards anyway.

    What do your games play like? That's the real reason you have such a powerful card :D
