    system specifications:
    P4 1500MHZ
    256MB rdram
    ATI 9700pro
    RESULT above 4000 points

    and today I added more ram so my pc specs became
    P4 1500MHZ
    640MB rdram
    ATI 9700pro
    RESULT only 1000 points

    why is this?I get low FPS in the second test (around 10 max)
    I have 256MB x2 plus 64MB x2 which gives a total of 640MB is there something wrong?
    even in games I haven't noticed any peaks in FPS like Splinter cell or UT2k3...but only MS Windows gives good results after I added more ram it's faster than ever.

    what kind of board do you have?

    are you sure you didn't change any of hte video card's settings? maybe try taking the memory you just put in and see if it goes back to 4000.
