Aquamark3 Scores...horrible? Help w/tuning

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Recently this year I put together my first PC and got these scores:

Overall: 7555
CPU: 5883
GFX: 807

New PC consists of:

P4 531/Socket 775 3.0Ghz O'ced to 3.3
Asus P5GD2-X MB
Aspire 500watt (died on me after 3mths of use) now a Sunbeam 570watt PSU
2x1GB PQI DDR2 PC4200 533MHZ RAM
PCI-X Arcade FX GeForce 6200 Turbo Cache 433/637
(after some readin on here I realized it was a mistake any suggestions a replacement?)

Anything else I can do to improve my scores should they be around this area with my setup or higher?

Your CPU should be higher, mine is 8k and its only 3.4ghz skt 478. Your GPU is a little low, but you shouldn't expect all that much...

GPU replacement would be a big improvement.

First of all do you have an AGP slot or a PCI-E slot? Give me a budget and I will find a new better video card for you.

That's a terrible graphics card and not a gaming processor either.

I have a PCI-Express slot no AGP, my budget for a new card is nothing crazy probaly $100-$150 at most maybe a little more if I can sel my current one on eBay for some extra money.

I just re-did the test with my CPU O'Ced at 3.6 (manual value of 245 in Bios), and memory at 636Mhz I got these numbers

Overall: 7701
CPU: 8675
GFX: 804

Both tests were done in only 1024x768, I want to be able to play Doom 3 or even Call of Duty 2 in my monitors native resolution of 1280x1024, what else would I need other than a better PCI-E graphics card?

There is something very wrong with your GFX. My 7300LE(worst or slowest 7Series PCI-E) can reach 3477GFX points in Aquamark without any mod or overclocking. I know Wax, but they both card has almost the same specs and around 28k diff?

Kopi he has a TC (turbocache) card so its taking away fromt he CPU and ram that explains the CPU score. Fear its a 6200.... your 7300le is better. That GPU is dragging the system down because of TC and its not a powerful card at all to boot.

I just finished retesting with an OC of 3.8Ghz and going from single to dual channel DDR2 RAM @677Mhz(I had them in the wrong slots and 514Mhz), and turning down the OC of GPU to stock 350/500, why did my overall score go down tho?
