    Hello All,

    Its been a while since i've posted here. I hope to be back much more now!

    I have decided to get myself i new computer :)

    Here is what I was thinking

    Pentium 4 3.0E ghz
    512 MB DDR PC 3200
    80 GB Hardrive
    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro

    Does anybody have an estimate on what my 3dmark2005 score will be?

    perhaps around the 2000 mark... probably just over...

    I get plus 2000 with my system w/o a fresh start or performance settings... you have a slightly faster card so i assume you should be able to hit that mark as well

    wow I was way off, I knew the graphics card played a huge role but didn't think it would be THAT much! I get about about 4800 with my set up...here is the link http://service.futuremark.com/servlet/Index?pageid=/orb/projectdetails&projectType=12 and sazar your cpu ram and motherboard are much better than mine but I am running the 6800 GT? does the graphics card outway it that much?

    sorry scavers guess my number was way off

    yes tuffgong...

    in a test like 3dmark 2001 you might have seen the increases you suggest but in 3dmark03 and 05 the test is primarily dependent on the gpu...

    thats not to say a good cpu will not help but its a far smaller increment than the delta seen by changing the gpu itself...
