I'm stuck

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had some problems a while ago, got some good info from members here and took some advice and upgraded my pc, though i had a pretty tight budget to work with.

Here is where i'm stuck. My 3dmark scores didnt improve, my framerate in games is crap, this is what I've done so far:

Replaced stock dell mobo with Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H
Replaced 2x 1g DDR2 RAM with 2x 2g DDR2 RAM OCZ Reaper HPC
Overclocked AMD 64 x2 Dual core 4000+ from 2.1ghz to 2.52 (stable with OCCT test)
Overclocked eVGA 8800gt 512mb to 674/1685/1003
Installed Antec 500w powersupply, 2x 12v rails (ordered a new one from newegg, was DOA)

After installation, I uninstalled all device drivers, then reinstalled updated versions. I tried setting all clocks to stock, de-tuning them a bit, re-overclocking them - none of which helped. Right now i have a 3dMark06 score of around 8200. Looking for ways to improve the shoddy framerates, low score and overall lack of performance.

Score looks decent for an AM2 rig.

Could you post a compare link for 06?

Post compare link; need to see seperate CPU, SM2 and SM3 scores. I score 8300 with my E6300 at stock and my GPU clocks at stock, with my GPU at 680/1665/985 I score 8517. While my score may not be that high, Intel motherboard = no overclock, I have no problem playing Crysis on high with 30+ FPS in just about every scene.
First and foremost, if your score of 8200 is without overclocks then it is normal, could even be considered high. If this is your sig is correct you're running Vista, understand that you do lose a few points due to that (in comparison to XP). Here are two X2 systems to compare to yours, 4200+ and 3800+. Pretty big variation in scores but things like memory timings, memory speed, disk condition, OS and stability do adversely effect your score. How long has it been since you defragmented your hard drive? What are your temps on your 8800GT? If you replaced alot of hardware a new Windows install wouldn't be a bad idea to clean your drive up (old drivers, ect.).
