System info, not overclocked: AMD Athlon XP 2000 Asus VIA KT266A mobo 4x agp<-think it has C-media 6channel audio as well Windows xp Home Geforce4 ti 4600 Sound Blaster Live Plat. 5.1 512 megs DDR ram using 3D Mark 2001 SE for scores On the default 1024x768 32bit resolution I got a 3D Mark of 8391, does that sound right for my system? So I lowered resolution and all options and got a score of 10,896. Which sounded right for my system unless I'm suppose to get that score in the default?!? I checked my IRQ settings and noticed my Sound card and video card are sharing the same setting PCI 11. They are only devices using this slot but should I change one to a different slot perhaps? I do sometimes get distorted sound as well which changing to software and back to EAX Hardware seems to fix. I'm beta testing a very nice looking game that my system is running like crap and I'm wondering what I can do to get my performance up. Others with worse systems then mine don't seem to be having the same problems. Thanks for the help all.
