Hello all, I figured this was the place to turn for this question. Basically, I want to know why I have such a disappointing 3dMark06 score. I am running the rig listed below, and as far as I know, this is one of the fastest and most powerful AMD builds possible and I can barely push over 17,000 in 3dmark06 at all default settings.

One thing that concerns me, is that perhaps my crossfire is not working and 3dmark06 is trying this off of one card.

Well first things first, is 17K on 3dmark06 a good score overall? Mind you, this is a 3.4Ghz quadcore with 2 overclocked 4870's.

For 1 card, it's a normal score. Looks like Crossfire is not enabled.

Well +Rep for the quick response! What score should I be looking for roughly?
I had a feeling crossfire was not working. In CCC in the hardware view, I have one GPU as "Primary Adapter" and the second says "Disabled Adapter", even though Catalyst A.I is enabled and set to normal, and the little check box for CrossFireX is marked. Figures.

What bums me out is that GPU-Z says CF is enabled, but I think that just might be detected that I have the CF box checked in CCC, even though it isn't doing its job.

It a couple others have the same problem, but it has no solution that I can see. I guess crossfire just doesn't work in WinXP?
