Yes that was an Aqua Teen Hunger Force reference in my topic summary but my question still remains that shall be asked in the upcoming paragraph.

First my system specs:

CPU = AMD Barton XP2800+ OC'd to 3200+ speeds

Mobo = Asus A7N8X delux

RAM = 1024mb of Mushkin value DDR400

GPU = eVGA 6800 GT stock speeds with 71.24 Forceware drivers

Sound Card = Audiotrak Prodigy 7.1 ( not that 3d mark guages this in tests)

Keyboard = OK this is getting tedious; on to my query.


I scored 4700 with change on 3dmark05 version 1.1. Is that normal? This test brought my rig to it's knees through parts of it as it crept along at 1 fps on the what I assume were intesive sections.

Now I was thinking of upgrading to an AMD Athlon 64 ( 3500+ 939) with most likely an Asus bran mobo this summer. If these tests are normal for the hardware I have now than I'm going to scrape together what money I have and visit New Egg and ZipZoomFly.

I almost forgot; I have a Samsung LCD 710T that runs at 1280X1024. I used the free version of the test and it runs in 1024X768. Would not running in native res muck up my PC's score?

I get around 4700-4800 with stock speeds on my GT, and around 5300 with overclocked speeds on both my cpu and gt... so you're not too far off
