I bought an Inspiron XPS off of ebay a while ago.
Mobility Radeon 9800 256mb
60GB Hard Drive
When I first got it, It ran like a complete slug and in 3dmark06 posted 326 (SM 2.0: 184/CPU:99) with the Omega Drivers at the stock GPU346mhz/MEM300mhz clock. It ran as hot as a frying pan and I noticed alot of dust on the heatsinks, so I took it apart and cleaned it. Then when I put it together, it wouldnt complete POST. So I got it repaired (Bad logic bridge was the diagnosis). When I got it back, I ran 3dmark06 in the same config, it posted 824(416/486). After some overclocking took place putting the GPU at 500mhz, and MEM at 400mhz, opening my window in 25*F weather. It ran through with no artifacts with a score of 1134 (564/775) http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=632043 . While this is a HUGE increase over my original 326, it still seems slow. Is this what my score should be? Or should I be faster and why?
