People pull the "higher scores" are overclocking their CPU & GFX card(s).

Stock you should be clearing 10k easily with that card. Check you driver options, are you forcing AA or AF? Is the card getting enough power, what is your PSU?

OK that sore seems about right, at stock clocks.(still think a teeny bit on the low side, mine at stock clocks clears 11k) What is your setup? CPU, Ram, Mobo,...ect?

That's a pretty nice rig you got there, not to far off from mine. With those components your score seems about right. Like I said though I thought your card was capable of a bit more, but no one will complain about 500 points. Anyway enjoy you rig and welcome to the forums.

Thanx for the comments on my rig, I was wondering about my bios i know their is a update but the program that comes with it on the disk asus updater will not detect my mother board and i dont know how to do it manualy i dont want to ruin my board paid to much for it. This is my first computer build and still learning. Also i was wondering on my memory i have them next to each other in the slots, but down at best buy i was checkin out one of their gamin computers and they had 2gb of memeory but 1 stick was in first slot and the other one was in the third slot does that make a difference. Other then that 500 points is not that much and it plays all the games smooth except madden has some texture coruption on the field with the white lines blinkin.

My advice on your mobo drivers, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. (especially if you are unsure of what you are doing) And as far as your memory config, just make sure that it is in dual channel (download CPU-Z in the downloads section to see) And the whilt blinking speckles in madden are called artifacts, usually caused from your video memory being OC'd too high, though if it's doing it at stock clocks you may have a bad memory module on your card. Check your other games, and look closely at everything to see. If not you just may have a little hiccup in your installation of madden.
