Low 3DMark06 Scores with 7800GTX

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm new to the overclocking world, and have yet to OC my video card. Well, I downloaded the 2005 and 2006 3DMark programs and took the benchmarks just to see where I stand w/o OCing the graphics card and I scored a 2696 on the 06 and a 4095 on the 05. I was averaging very low framerates, especially on the 06 - rarely broke 20...and on the CPU test it averaged at less than 1FPS with screen periodically freezing. The 05 was better but still very poor. Any idea why, and what I might be able to do to fix this? My games run fine on the most part, but I achieve around 30-40 FPS on the fear test.

setup:
Pentium D 940 3.2GHz running at 3.85, Asus P5LD2 Deluxe MB, 2GB PQI Turbo DDR2 667, Antec Sonatta 2 case, 450W Antec PSU, 1x250GB Hitachi Deskstar 7200rpm, and XFX Geforce 7800 GTX 256MB DDR3

anyways, tips appreciated, thx

20 FPS is fine on your card, I know 8800 GTS owners who average in the low to mid 30s.

The CPU test is also accurate for your cpu.

Although your actual scores will provide better information.

your 3dmark06 score look a bit low. i had a PD 940 and a 7800gtx and had about 4000pts.

i don't remember my score in 3dmark05


you are on WinXP right?

i don't know what your problem could be. you're sure you rig is clean? no spyware, no viruses?

try a program called 'advanced windows care' to clean it. sorry i don't have a link, but you should find it easy on google.

a good defrag never hurt too

3Dmark stresses the GPU, so of course you won't get great framerates. Heck, I rarely break 7fps, 9 when overclocked.

Out of date drivers? It's a bit low, but not that far off. If your games are fine, don't worry about it. 3Dmark is just a benchmark for bragging rights.
