Hey all, First the specs: Athlon XP 2500 Barton ATI Radeon 9700 Pro 128MB 768 MD DDR 2700 RAM Maxtor HD 36 GB 7200RPM Gigabyte GA-7VAX KT400 Chipset Just ran 3dMark 05 (free version) for the second time and I got a score of 1889. Before that it was a score of about 1100. Considering my specs I'm thinking that these are a bit low. I've updated the graphics card, installed DX 9.0c, and even defragged my hard drive. Also installed those new Via 4 in 1 drivers. I'm guessing doing all of that is what bumped my score up a bit, but again, it still seems low. Any ideas on how to get this score a lil higher. With HL2 coming out soon (hopefully) I'm trying to tweak this bad boy as well as possible.
