When I first saw 3DMark Score 25212, I flipped and thought that is the norm.

Okay, mine just under 8000 and seems like it is a normal average score. Now I am pleased.

AMD X2 4200+ and nVidia 8800GT

Well the real DX10 is not so far away...

http://www.futuremark.com/3dmarkvantage/

So far everything has been DX9 with some DX10 features. (It's no good busines to publish a game that is pure DX10 at this moment... only few people could play the game in anyway.) So this wantage is first pure DX10 product, so it can give you picture how real DX10 game titles will work. Ofcourse it will take 3-4 years at least until the game companies drops out their DX9 support, even longer... So the 3DMarkWantage will be alone a guite long time... at lest until first 3DMark game studio game comes out...

3DMark Vantage which should be out soon is supposed to be DX10.

I get about 12000 with 2x8800GT SLI and a E6300@2.8

I just UPS'd my 8800GTS 320mb to Evga a few hours ago. I'm doing their step-up program to get the 8800GT. Would have gotten the 8800GTS 512mb but money is hard to come by these days, and I'm convinced I would not see any real-world ingame performance increase to justify the extra $50 or $60 evga wants other than being able to play Crysis at higher visuals. Right now i plugged an old ati x300 in my system so I can still do assignments and web. I would not dare to run 3dmark06 on that. Might actually fry the little guy, who knows haha.

Kinda sucks though because EVGA will get my card on Friday, add 3-4 day processing, and then four more days to get back. I'm out of a card for two weeks. No team fortress 2 for two whole weeks. Should give me plenty of time to bump up my Chemistry average from that pathetic 95% :D

I'm thinking I need better memory too. Dad got it for my new system as a present and paid close to $80 for Dell Certified XPS 667mhz memory thinking thats the best stuff since they use Dells where he works. I've increased my bus to get to 3.4GHz. Right now the timings are 5-5-5-18. I really don't want to push any higher. I doubt the memory can keep up.

I would think your score would be much higher. I just has one 8800GTS 320MB w/e8400 @ 3.4ghz and I scored 11,545 last time. You have TWO 8800gt's. The difference in 3dmark06 between the wolfdales and conroes is only a few hundred points according to benchmarks I've seen, and I doubt the 600mhz difference in our clockspeeds could hold you back that much. I would think you would get at least 14k+.

could someone correct me if i'm wrong?

I just ran it and got 12284. I think it's my CPU which is dragging my score down because the CPU test is a slide show barely getting 1FPS. I get about 10500 with one video card.

SLI doesn't really shine until you get into higher resolutions and at 3Dmarks default 1280x1024 I don't think it's utilizing the cards properly. With the exception of Crysis I can play every game I have with everything maxed out at 1920x1200 this includes CoD 4, Supreme Commander, C&C 3 and even Crysis I can play on all high with a few things on ultra high.

Yours is probably due mainly to the GPU. Plus 06 is not optimized for quad cores. I get the same and I have "supposively" worse card than you a HD2900Pro 1GB and everything is at stock. Haven't tried it with my Q6600 OC'ed to 3GHz and my 2900Pro OC'ed to 800/2200 yet.

Just for Schnits and giggles here is my score on a single HD2900Pro 1GB:

11698 3DMarks. Not too bad. I can probably boost it a bit by upping the memory and GPU speed. Plus this is on Vista so I am sure that on XP it would be higher.

I got 8600 with the following system specs:
Asus P5B Deluxe
Intel E4300 @ 3.2
XFX 7950GX XXX
Generic 2GB 667 RAM
Windows XP 32 Bit.

I am happy with that in comparison to other peoples result's here. I am upgrading to Kingston HyperX 1066 and Intel q9450 depending on Australian release price.

Hey, could anyone answer this? it's quite odd.

While running 3dmark06 i noticed that under the CPU tests i only ran with a framerate of 0-1 but i still got a score of 12700.
How can that be? And is there anything wrong with my CPU? (I never updated my BIOS on the motherboard since i took it out of the box, MSI p35 neo2-fr

~ 11,000 (ATI cat 8.2) with E1280 @ 3.0 and ATI HD3870 (factory OCed at 850 for the gpu core). I have xp x64 with 4 gig of ram running at DDR2 1020 (Odd because of ratio I am using). I would say that a good system would be 7,000 and up. This is more then I need to play the games that I paly.
