5k for a x1300xt is a VERY good score. How overclocked are you? a 1600pro stock does something like 3.5k and you have a 1300xt and pulling almost 5? Something is wrong here..

Thats a pretty good score for that card, the thing you should upgrade is obviously the graphics card, thats what is holding you back especially since 3dmark is pretty much based mostly on graphics card performance.

Very nice score considering it's a X1300XT. Of course you need to upgrade your graphics card.

Eh, you guys are helping like he has issues.
That score is insane for that card.

My 6800LE (AGP 16/6) would push 5241.

are you actually having poor in game experience? or so you just want your 3dmark score to be higher??
because looking at your rig it doesnt seem that you should be having any problem playing games.

just wondering

Idk.. maybe its my sound card.. the sound tests made the fps drop dramatically.

My memory needs another gig.

Oh I got tested with 7 similiar systems, I got 1st place.. but thats because im overclocked.

as for the 2gb, yes its better than 1. but, what games do you play, depending on what you play, more ram or better GPU may be different

That score is amazing for that graphics card, and--one gig of RAM is enough.
That is an X1600PRO in disguise, which is an underpowered card.

Well I play Half-Life 2, Counterstrike:Source, Farcry, Battlefield 2142 < All of these games are maxed out with smooth framerates.

Need for speed Carbon < Notice the framerates arent as bad.. but not perfect either. With max settings.

F.E.A.R < I came to a conclusion that I cant max out F.E.A.R because ill encounter unplayable Framerates... there is alot of swapping.. everywhere I walk I get alot of swapping... and I hate it because I love this game.

Its your Graphics card.

Sorry to hijack the thread a lil, but @ enterprise, when did you get the new rig? I always remember you having the old SKT 478 stuff, then i just checked your rig, and its all new and stuff!

Nah, its very possible. My old 9600XT ran Half Life 2 on high just fine...

That x1300xt you have seems like a nice little speedy card
