hi evertone, could someone please give me some advice.
i have just recieved my new computer of cougar extreme and i ran the 3d mark 06 software. it gave me a score of 7100, which i was a bit dissapointed with. is this a good score on a new PC,i rang cougar and they said yes, my system specs are
6550 duo core 2 gig 667 ram windows vista bfg 8800 gt oc ga-g33m-ds2r/s2 mother board 700w psu
whilst running the test, on the cpu test bit the fps was between 0-1, the rest of the time between 16-35 fps. cougar said that the final score was the important bit thanks
the pc has the latest nvidia drivers, cougar said they downloaded them and checked the system before shipping, 7100 is a low score for 8800 gt.what was more worrying was the 0-1 FPS on the cpu test on 3d mark.
Hi mate! I have a Quad core (Q6600) system with a 8800GTX and 4GB of Ram with vista 64bit. I get a score around double what you get. But it appears that from looking at other peoples result on-line my score is pretty low for my set-up and i have no idea how to improve it (apart form turning off norton etc..). Dont worry about the low FPS for CPU test, mine was only about 1-3FPS. I beleive this is because the GFX card isnt used in this bit of the test so the FPS will be very low. I agree though, this kind of test means nothing really. Play a game like COD 4 or Crysis and see how you get on. if you are happy with the performance then it doesnt really matter what you 3dmark 06 score is.... For instance last night I had my computer downloading 20+ files (simultaniously), converting an AVI file and burning it to DVD and playing COD 4 on-line (lag free) all at the same time. I am more than happy with that!!!
I don't think that sounds too bad. I bought my computer off Cougar about 7 months ago. E6600 AND 8800 GTX. I was getting a 3dmark 06 score of 9960. Recently with a slight overclock on the processor and graphics card it gave me 12036. This was after changing to a better power supply and installing extra cooling. Which takes me from the bottom of my card range to nearer the top.
