I have done some upgrading this weekend and while im not finished yet with the upgrades im not sure if my score should be as low as it is and maybe I have done something wrong in the upgrade process.
E6600 Core 2 Conroe @ Stock
Asus P5W DH Motherboard
Corsair 2 x 1GB 667 memory running in Dual Channel
ATI X800 XT graphics card
Jeantech 450 Watt PSU (+3.3V = 30A, +5V = 28A, +12V1 = 14A, +12V2 = 15A, -12V = 1A, +5V sb = 2.5A)
My 3DMark06 score is 2270, if this is correct then thats ok but I know my Graphics card is a weak point but is it really causing this score to be this low, my previous system was a P4 3.6 with 2GB PC3200 memory and the same graphics card and I managed to get just over 2000 on 3DMark06.
Possibly my PSU is not putting out the required power im not sure, I do have alot of USB devices attached, two DVD drives and 2 HDD, 1 Floppy and 3 case fans.
Oh also im still running 32Bit WinXP, holding out for Vista to go 64bit, could this affect the score much?
One other thing, 3DMark could not compare my system to another like it as apparently not enough people have a similar setup to generate comparisons.
Oh one thing im confused about is when I load up CPU-Z it says my memory is PC2-5300 (333MHz), should this not be 667MHz?
Thanks in advance for any help.
