The Power Supply Watts affect the CPU speed?

Look what happend!

I have My gamer computer (watch the spec bellow) with a 650W Power Supply
And the 3dmark06 score was 10,870.

My friend have the same hardware but his power supply is a 750w and his 3dmark06 score was 13,570

it's the power supply?

Thanks!

Maybe different OS, you have background apps open, you forgot to change some settings.

that would have nothing to do with it...are you sure everything is changed settings-wise that may affect your score? Did he overclock his computer?

That may happen when the 650w PSU claims 650w but don't have adequate amperage and high fluctuation on 12v rails.

The power supply will only change the score when it is under-volting your components, i HIGHLY doubt that because he is using a more powerful PSU than you, his score is 3k higher than yours which is a BIG jump, other things must be taken into consideration, like drivers, clock speeds, and how stuffed up your HDD is, i think your score is pretty low for your card, are you using vista? if so what version, his sounds like a score in XP, check his gpu/cpu clocks and also RAM timings and then try and match yours to his, he may also be using better quality components than you, have you actually matched your specs directly down to model numbers?
