    i have a feeling my pc isn't running as well as it should be..or maybe its just me?
    i have :

    windows xp pro sp2
    BFG geforce 6800 ultra (71.24)
    2gbs of 3200 ddr ram (512x4)
    amd 64 fx 2.4 (939 pin)
    asus A8v deluxe

    i get around 4000 on the 3dmark05 (1024x768, no AA, filtering optimal, im not sure what other options i should be checking..)

    so am i getting what i should be getting?

    but you dont have to update your bios try defragmenting your hard drive first to some check to your computer before updating your bios

    You also might want to check your timings on the ram. Isn't there something about how if you have 4 slots of ram filled you have to change from 2T to 1T?

    have you installed the chipset drivers?
    installing the chipset drivers (if not installed) will enable the graphics card to work in AGP mode, instead of the PCI mode they default to... just a thought.
