Is it normal to get these scores at these specs and speeds?
2600+ 333fsb tbred@ 2.45ghz (11x225)
Abit NF-7 S
Corsair PC3200 2-2-2-7@225 fsb
BFG FX5900 ultra 535/965mhz
Using 56.72 drivers because the IQ is the best and things run smoother than any other driver. The most unbelievable thing is my GFX score is consistantly 7500+ on aquamark. I've tried those starstorm benchmarking drivers that have terrible quality and are supposed to give you high scores but I get worse scores with worse quality drivers. I've tried forcing everything off and I get even worse scores. I get the best scores with the highest quality drivers at default settings. I think I've just found my sweet spot because if I overclock higher I lose alot of points. For example if I run my vid card at 545/975mhz I score only like 44,000 on aquamark. I'm not intentionally trying to sacrifice quality to get higher scores I just want to know if these scores sound to good to be true. I get 40,000 on aquamark running high quality and 4xAA and 8xAF and 4000 on 3Dmark using the same settings.
