    The 1.6 gig P4 is a little slow to get best scores with a 9700 pro.

    Check stuff like anisotropic off, and no anti aliasing to get the max scores. CHeck your properties, settings, advanced, 9700 pro
    and set performance to max.

    The 1.6 P4 could be costing you 20-25% on your score. Those high benchmarks are run with amd 2700 or P4 3 gig systems. the proc speed makes a diffference.

    Yes, its probably the 1.6 costing you a lot of marks. Is it a willamette(256k cache) or northwood(512k cache)? The performance will differ between these. Also what speed is your ddr running at? This will make an impact on how many 3dmarks you get. Use 3dmark03, that will show the power of your 9700 :)

    L1 cache 8 KB first-level
    L2 Cache intergrated 256 kb or 512-kb at full microproccessing speed.

    Well which one? 256 or 512?
    Take a look with a program like cpu-z @ www.cpuid.com
