3DMark06 Estimates?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Im wondering, with my current hardware (sig rig ), should I really only be getting 6k 3Dmarks?

I fear that I may have too much crap on this comp bogging it down, but then again, on this old little Pentium D, who knows...

Yeah, dont bug me about how old some of my hardware is, Im upgrading as I get the funds (HS Student w/o a job ), just maybe a couple (No more than two posts saying so ) confirmations that my CPU is holding me back would be fine.

At what I have now, what SHOULD I be getting?

Your 3DMark06 is accurate, you are experienceing major CPU bottleneck.

Well, theres one of two (of the aformentioned CPU Bottleneck post limit ), but that really didnt answer my main question...

What score SHOULD I be getting on that hardware?

So, 6K on stock IS what I should be getting?

In that case, how much better performance would I get from overclocking the PD up past 3.0 and maybe past 3.5? (Considering I can keep the temps down)

Um, capsrape much?

Anyway, my 3Dmark06 score should be on that sigrig page, says 6190.

Thanks for the info though, I'll see how much I can push the core up safely and then 3Dmark it later today.

Still it wont do much more. Overclocked CPU will help but a new Core 2 Will help alot more.
