Okay, so I've working on setting up a new system at home. Right now it's a bit of a mix of parts (still waiting on the new vid card and such)

Anyways, I decided to try running 3DMark03 using my old vid card on the new system. Holy crap did that suck! Final score of 108. I would have thought it'd be a little higher then that. The drivers were all up to date, and nothing else was running on the system at the time. Any ideas why it did so bad?

Here's the system specs...
Intel P4 2.8 Ghz
1 Gb 400mhz DDR
Msi 865gm2-ls Mobo
SBlive 24bit sound card
GeForce 4 Mx440 64 MB vid card

definatly cuz or the videocard. u need at least 128mb to get a decent score and at least a 9600. or maybe try changing the drivers, which should give u a better score because that does sound really low....

I doubt it will get any better... What do you spect when your card averages low low FPS.

My 128mb Geforce FX5200 would stay under 10FPS all through out 3dmark... The MX440 is a budget card, and an old one at that, it's not going to be good for benchmarking.

That's pretty much what I expected, though I was hoping for a little higher then 108
I actually did update the drivers from Nvidia right before I ran 3DMark, so I goofed and didn't get a good benchmark for before and after the driver change.

I'm hoping to move up to a x800 XT or GeForce 6800 after xmas(depending on the bills). guess I'll just have to wait it out
