Here is the thread I started earlier if you would like to read:

http://www.gamespot.com/pages/forums...2034#288882034

My specs are:
Dual Core 3.0 GHZ, 2GB DDRII RAM, 250GB HDD, EVGA GeForce 8800GTS KO ACS3 640MB, Creative X-FI Extreme Gamer, 20" LG LCD Widescreen

oh and I'm a total noob when it comes to overclocking, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
i had your problem with low scores in 3dmark 06
and i ownd 1 Prescott at 3.2ghz...
score was 5010 marks .. crap..
..

WHats your GPU score?

It could just be that your CPU score is lowering your total score and not Bottlenecking as much as you think
Uhh what?

I know thats the total score, and I don't have a screenshot of when I ran the test.

...and of course the CPU is lowering the total score. 3dmark06 is a CPU whore. Its almost 50 / 50 in terms of CPU vs GPU points.

You're seriously bottlenecked there with a 3dmark06 score of 4500. My old AMD X2 3800 computer got about 5,500 with an ATI X1800XT video card and my current system, using an 8800GTS 320mb, gets a score of 10,500.

Try 3dmark03 instead, as you can choose to skip the CPU benchmarks. It mainly benchmarks the video card rather than combining the CPU and GPU benches as you can de-select CPU tests and it will still give you your score. Download 3dmark03, install and run it with only the game tests selected, and tell us what your score is.
