OK, thanks.

Edit, I don't think I'll be using my desktop much anymore, think I should part it out and up grade my laptop?

Oh well that's not angering... eh, it's worth it, it's one hell of a good computer, these Dox drivers combined with the 8800gts rules in games.

Thanks for the tip

When i ran the first bench i had resolution to 1440x900 and 8x AA. the rest was default setting

I took your advice and changed power profile to performance and updated the nvidia drivers, lowered resolution to 1280x768 and 2xAA and my score went to 8436.

i have a p-7811fx laptop with a 9800m gts 512 and it sometimes gets up to 106 degrees is this normal? It also seems to be having performance problems games lag out faster. Also, i have had a drop of my 3dmark06 score by over 2000 from over 8000 to less than 6000. Any ideas on how to fix this.
Edit: the 106 degrees is the gpu not the cpu
