Perhaps a silly question, but what would be regarded as a good score. Or within what range would be regarded as a good score?

Initially I had a score of 4419, but after overclocking the processor and GFX card I managed to push this upto 5040, which seemed like a reasonable gain - what do we think?

If you read the notes regarding 3DMark2005 previous versions' scores are not compatible with the latest version.

You need to build up a benchmark and compare it to others on the madonion website.

Oops, meant to add a little info about the machine too...

Asus A7N8X Deluxe motherboard.
Amd XP2500+ processor overclocked to XP3000+
Asus AX800PRO/TVD GFX, also over clocked from 475/450 GPU/Mem to 528/520 (I think).

1 Gig of Cosair memory - not over clocked.

Kinda guessed as much going by previous incarnations of the software. Just wondered how the score faired in itself. I done the compare thing via the 3dmark website and my machine seemed to compare with other machines of a simlar spec basically.

You're lucky...:-)

My system gets about a third of the way through 3DMark2005 and then crashes spectacularly.

It's just not up to it unfortunately, but the bomber planes demo is terrific.

Your scores are good and about right for your setup.

I have a 3.2GHz P4 S478 Prescott overclocked to 3.55GHz with 2GB DDR400 Corsair XMS memory @ 222FSB and an X800pro VIVO BIOS modded to X800XT spec(16 pixel pipelines 500/500 core/memory).

With the latest Catalyst 5.11 drivers and 3DMark05 I get a score of 5900.
