Hey all, i just bought a geforce 7800gtx and i ran 3d mark and i'm getting scores of 5000. I have looked online and people with my same rig are getting around 7000 and higher. I installed the latests video drivers (twice) and have directx running as well. I couldn't find the d/l for SP2 on microsoft so i didn't worry about that. My rig is Athlon64 X2 4200 Msi NX 7800GTX Corsair 2G (2x1g) 80gig hd Sound Blaster adigy 2 ZS The case i have is a Xaser III Lanfire case from thermaltake. It comes with a 420W psu (nvidia says you need a 350 for the 7800).Any suggestion on why my score is so horribly low. I havn't really went into the bios because i'm not sure as far as the video options go.I even unplugged some of the fans in my case to see if it would give more power to the GPU but i don't think it helped at all. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I tried to place some screenshots but they're too big even in .jpg format. According to 3dmark this is what it says : Description NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX Manufacturer NVIDIA Total Local Video Memory 256 MB Total Local Texture Memory 256 MB Total AGP Memory 256 MB Driver File nv4_disp.dll Driver Version 18.104.22.168 Driver Date 7-20-2005 Driver WHQL Certified true Max Texture Width 4096 px Max Texture Height 4096 px Max User Clipping Planes 6 Max Active Hardware Lights 8 Max Texture Blending Stages 8 Fixed Function Textures In Single Pass 8 Vertex Shader Version 3.0 Pixel Shader Version 3.0 Max Vertex Blend Matrices 0 Max Texture Coordinates 8 VGA Memory Clock 1.2 GHz VGA Core Clock 275.4 MHz <------ Is this right ?

Also here are the cpu stats : Manufacturer AMD Family AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ Architecture 64-bit Internal Clock 2.2 GHz Internal Clock Maximum 3.0 GHz External Clock 200.0 MHz Socket Designation Socket 939 HyperThreadingTechnology Available - 2 Logical Processors Capabilities MMX, CMov, RDTSC, 3DNow!, Extended 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, PAE, NX Version AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ Caches Level 1 128 KB I also wanted to note that when i'm running 3dmark05 and it runs past the airboat scene, the first time it runs it it's very nice and smooth, but the second time it runs that scene it gets between 0 and 2 fps.
