8800gt low 3dmark score

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just installed my new PNY 8800gt and my 3dmarks scores are only 5382, isnt this a little low for the 8800gt reference card? im using 3dmark06 btw.

Any tips would be appreciated

Thats is very low indeed. Did you install the most recent drivers from Nvidia. Also many will recommend running driver cleaner pro before installing new drivers.

What's your psu and how many amps?
If not enough juice it would go into a reduced performance mode.

500w is enought IF it has a min of 24A on +12V

on the side it should say +12V - xxA or +12v 1 - xxA +12v 2 - xxA

you need either 24A on the single or both to add up to that if its double

otherwise driversweeper and re install

you should be around 12k with that rig

Either its not getting its power like stated above, or you have a faulty video card. Try a different power supply first.
