3dMark06 scores seem horrendously low

  1. I ran 3dMark06 today and scored... 3416.

    My computer setup is as such:

    PentiumD920 2.8@3.5
    XFX 7600GT
    3Gb DDR2-Not Sure, probably the lowest speed DDR2
    Asus P5WD2 Motherboard

    So I'm curious, is my hardware just outdated or should be able to score higher and something is wrong?

    That score looks about right. With a 7800GS+ AGP (7900GT with lower clocks) and a single core CPU (Athlon 64 3200+), I got a score of 3711, which consisted of:

    SM 2.0 1741
    SM 3.0 1746
    CPU 807

    A magazine benchmark using a Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.15 and an MSI 7600GT (560/1400) scored 3399 at defaults.
