    I have been running test and my score ends around 6400 somewhere, but when i compare to other systems with same spec theres is much higher around the 9000's Can someone explain why this would be? i mean if they overclocked or used a faster ram or a diff mb would this change the score by that much?

    6400 is an excellent score for your rig mate. 3dmark06 is mainly gfx tests. Well it only actually tests your gfx card and your cpu and even at that there aren't many cpu tests. I think you'd get a higher score with pcmark05 which really tests everything. But seriously 6400 is an excellent score and any tweaks you might do wouldn't increase it all that much.

    Also those higher numbers your seeing may be people that are running dual 7900GS's in SLI.

    Yeah i was thinking that. When 3dmark gives you simillar systems a lot of the time they aint that simillar at all. When you're running a c2d as you are it'll often pair you with ANY core 2 duo instead of the exact same cpu. i'm running an x6800 with an x1950 xtx and my score in 3dmark is only 7200 and that is with the cpu overclocked to 3.71ghz. However on pcmark 05 (which is the latest) i can get 10k.
