Very low 3dMark Scores

  1. I recently reformatted my computer, installed all the drivers and everything. Everything looked good.

    I started playing some games, Call of Duty, Team Fortress and my FPS was way down from what I remembered so I installed 3dmark Advantage.

    I have a 8800gts, q6600, 2gb RAM and yet im getting a combined score of about 3000. My video card gets about 3000 and my CPU is getting in the low 2000s. Compared to other people's scores, this is VERY low and very odd.

    Nothing is overheating, no viruses or spyware slowing the computer down. Its just been reformatted

    I tried installing several different drivers 175.19, 175.16 and some of the older ones and none of them work any better.

    This is all pretty odd, any suggestions?

    Were your 3D mark scores higher before the reformat?

    Never tested it, only decided to use 3dmark after I noticed slowdowns in my game
