Won't help. 3DMark01 is much more CPU/RAM sensitive as NCSA pointed out.

The cards aren't the problem... I am sure. Even a single one should have boosted him past 60k. Something else in his rig is holding things down.... possibly a wild array of background appications and what not.

Clean XP install is the best way.

The latest Vista drivers (158.24 onwards) improve the performance in all of FutureMark's 3DMark programs, so they perform very close to XP systems. However, seeing as 3DMark01SE makes use of DirectX 8.1, SLi simply will not work correctly with it. My 3DMark03 score is much higher than my 3DMark01SE score because of this.

Had the same problem need to find the sweet spot on mine. Good luck and this is one of the reasons I hate Vista too many problems!

I OCd my e6600 rig last night:

(For comparison only) LitlRatt:

CPU@3600mhz + GTX in SLI @626/2000 + Ram(Unknown) = 70,458

What gives? Vista? Nvidia Drivers (I have 158.45)? I have googled/changed settings in 01/change bios settings...I am stumped.

Ram is at stock 800 for a 1:1 ratio.
I never liked dual booting so I used removable drives and put OSes on individual drives. A better solution is to use a sata back plane. Then you just turn the drives on and off.
XP is much better for benching.

I did OC the PCI-E mhz up to 120mhz from 100mhz. No change. I am waiting for XP to come in from tiger, I think VISTA is the main culprit. I still cant break 50k even changing out to the e6600 and OCing to 3750mhz.

I believe I am the only one benching in Vista.

VISTA FTL.

49,986 in Vista.

73,779 in 3dMark01 on XP!

That is a 67% improvement.

Congrats
I recently got some OCZ Reaper. In XP, limit the memory to 2048. They will run at 4 4 4 6 1t @ 960 on my 680i board.
