my rig suck - Page 4

post #31 of 33
i'd say a new mobo and a cooler followed by a nice overclock to 3.6ghz would do the trick i945p chipset mobos are cheap and a big typhoon or a ninja would do the cooling.

i hope i'll be able to get the damn motherboard soon

Thats better! I'm not sure how DDR2 memory works compared to Regular DDR, but I bet if you remove 2 sticks and just run 2 in dual channel you will get that score over 7000. 1T vs 2T CPC with my memory makes about 200-300 points difference in 3dmark 2005.

I'm willing to bet that your scores are so low because of the test settings, not your equipment. Do you perhaps have your AA and/or AF on during 3DMark05? Also, what resolution were you running?
