Is it my system or my settings?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
All my system specs are in my profile.......my Sisoft Sandra Scores are pretty good, but when it comes to 3DMark and Aquamark my scores seem very low.

I've posted screen shots of my scores.

What I want to know is are my scores so low because of my lack of L2 cache or somthing else in my system?? or should my scores be higher based on my hardware so I probably have some settings wrong somewhere???

btw the 3dMark was done with my system at 300 x 8.5 (2.550GHz) there is only about 50-100 score difference

I don't think the L2 cache at 1mb over 512 (opty 144\\3000+) makes a real big difference. With my experience the outright speed of the processor is where the performance lies. Obviously the 144 and the 3000+ @ the same speeds the opty should win out but speed is everything in my books.
Remember the 6200 is showing its age here.

Try different drivers possibly. Also try with out the dividers and the oc clock on the card and see the difference. Does that card have turbo cache???

is it because of the vid card, the 6800 is a rather bif step up over the 6200 it does seem odd that you would score so low but gfx benchies are g card dependant have very little to do with the cpu because the smepy 3100+ is leaps and bound beter than the earlier versions.
