I cant get more than 11500 on 3dmark2001, and 5300 on 3dmark2003, I use all the latest drivers, and DirectX9.0, anyone have an idea as to what is the deal, I'm thinking my 3dmark2001 score should be around 16000. My 3dmark2003 score should be @ 6000.

check your settings in your control panel/ check v-synch status...

make sure all AA/AF is turned off and have a look/see WRT performance/quality settings beind employed...

I've got a similar problem. Even when I had a Radeon 9700 Pro (remember Sazar?), I couldn't get my 3DMark01SE score much above 12k. my 03 score, however was around 5200. Game performance was... eh, ok, but not like it should be. Now, I've got the FX 5900.. 01SE score = 12.4k, 03 score = 5200. Same deal. I've got the latest VIA hyperion drivers, which are 4.49. BAH, I'm thinking Soyo is the suck.

yah.. I figured it was not the card... since you were getting the same-ish performance no matter what you did...

Im beginning to think its Soyo as well. So much for a motherboard that looks good...

What mb should I get, I want a good looking one, and on-board RAID..

I like the Asus A7n8X-X. I've built three computers with those with not a single problem whatsoever. Built-in NIC and RAID, NForce 2 Chipset. Very nice! ;)

I agree, extremely stable motherboards. No problems here at all :D

Definitely the Soyo; those boards POS!

It's possible the card is not getting enough power so it can't run at the desired clock speeds :shrug:

wait that doesn't make sense if the 03 score is so good.

Hmm; must be the board man, only thing I can think of.

Try reinstalling DX

RAM settings dont make that big of a difference.

I just went from 4.48 to 4.49 hyperion all-in-one and the score went to 13000. I am going to reinstall DirectX 9, and if that doesnt do it I am getting that ASUS mb.

Damn things are a bottomless pit of money !!

Mine seems to be a little low as well. I just upgraded my processor from an athlon 2000 to an athlon 2800 barton and I upgraded my ram from pc 2100 to pc 2700. I used to get scores of 10500 ish now they are 11500 ish. Very disapointing.

I just cant decide what to do, on one hand I strive to use the best hardware available for this thing, and on the other hand... does it make sense to spend $150.00 because of some damn benchmark ???

In a couple of months I will be switching over to Athlon64, so I guess I'll hold off; thank you for the advice.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
