Probably because your GPU isn't great and your CPU is a dual core, 3dmark05 only uses one. You have a better score than my 9800 PRO, not much better though.

Your graphics card is holding you back here ......the CPU and RAM are great but you can't really expect more than that on a x700....... Is it overclocked ? you may be able to break 4000

You had a great choicle of peripherals, cpu, ram but the graphics card is kind of crap........ what is your budget....what do you want to spend?

EDIT: Are you a gamer? what kind of games do you play? there is no point of getting a better graphics card if you don't game.

Year right where it should be .........ok so 200-300$ let me do some searching................

You could always sell that x700.......I don't know why but many people get them but I don't think there worth the price or the performance

If you have the money I would go with this card......
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102629

It will quadruple your 3dmark05 score and falls right under a 7800gtx..... Expect 10k+ overclocked for sure....

If you wanna go even further there is the 7900gt for like 310-330$ which is the best deal for the price............
