3DMark06 score seems low?? Updated!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello guys you see what I have for a rig and I get 17496. I was thining that this is a very low score, I am not OC'd yet but I will when my 1366 bolt through kit gets here. At any rate do you think it is low. I have no OC on the graphics either, but I have a 4850X2 in Xfire with a 4850.


EDIT:
Alright so I have been running some graphics test and watching the FPS. I am using rthdribl.exe which display fps and you have the ability to adjust the MS, materials, focus, etc.. I opened up ATI CCC and disabled crossfire, to my surprise I gained an average 2 FPS. I know that 2FPS isn't much but with and average of 55 FPS, 2-3 FPS is about 5% loss with crossfire enabled. I suspect driver issues so I will start there. I am using the most recent WHQL drivers off the AMD website. Does any suggest I use different drivers?

Actually now that I think about it I have a couple questions.

When I first installed the cards I forgot to install the 4850. I guess I was just so excited about having the new card. Anyway after I got all my MB, and other hardware drivers installed I realized that the old 4850 needed to be installed. I installed it and let windows search the internet for the proper drivers.

Is there a certain way that I should get the drivers installed after I remove them?

EDIT:
Another update... After digging deeper into CCC I noticed that while xfire if disabled CCC reads that only one core of the three are enabled. Ok so I checked and enabled xfire and checked again and noticed that only two of the three 4850 core are enabled. The old card... the HD4850 is not enabled at all as far as I can tell. This shows that there is a serious issue considering disabling the linked core on the 4850X2 actually increased FPS by about 5% or so./COLOR]

Bump! I am still having issues. After I uninstalled the drivers in safe mode I rebooted my PC. Unfortunately all I got was a black screen, but I knew it was at the desktop. I then changed the DVI port and all was well when I rebooted. I then installed the drivers from the website and during reboot I got BSOD. I am now in safe mode again to uninstall the drivers. Hopefully it will go better this time around.

Alright so if I take out either cards the pc boots up... no BSOD. How do I get both of these cards to work? The frustration is really piling up here. The old one is on it way out the door heading for the snow bank. Help seems unavailable here and I am at a loss. I really am not the kind of guy that likes to wait around while AMD gets back to me. I will die of old age before they help me fix anything.

Does anyone have any suggestions before I seel this thing?
