    my system has been running great. today i ran 3dmark01 for the heck of it and it has dropped from 22k to 17k for no reason. i have 66.93 and the latest chipset drivers. i did not do anything to the system. i have no spyware that is doing this.

    all my temps are great, no reboots, no reason what so ever. has anyone had this happen to them?

    i just ran 3dmark03 and it dropped 1.1k. fastwrites are off in bios and in control panel. this is baffling me. also this load of windows is less then 2 weeks old.

    Did you switch V-sync? If it's always on, your score will be dramatically lower.

    i have it set to high perfor, no aa or as.

    it is acting like it is on.

    i just loaded 67:02 and that brought it back up to 18.6, still 5k short of what it was.

    i noticed when i loaded painkiller the game was choppy when the begining part was loading up until the main screen. i am thinking it is a windows problem not a driver.

    Maybe your PS is slowly slipping into madness?

    Also have you tried restarting your PC since you noticed the drop?

    i dont think it is the ps. it is enermax 465w and there is no stability problems. i have done many reboots because i have reloaded all drivers with no improvement.

    I suggest downloading this utility and making sure windows recognizes the correct agp settings that are in the bios.

    AGP Memory program link'

    I remember having an issue that showed the agp mem as on 6mb at one time. It made all my games run worse. Hope this helps.

    I see you have overclocked you CPU. Maybe your processor just doesn't like it up in these hights. Just as with GPU, CPU's slow down/benches get worse once you go over the optimal MHz number. Try reducing the CPU a bit and see what happens!

    its been running at this speed for over 1 month. i did a bios update last week and did not run any tests until last night. i think the update did it. i am going to roll back to the original bios and see if that fixes it.

    If you set a refreashrate override, that will lower your score and FPS, Warning!!!

    i am using the same override that i always have so i dont think that is it. i am serious when i say nothing has changed, no software was added or removed.

    it is just plain wierd.

    GART?

    Your 3dmark drop reminds me of the drop I suffered when I did a reinstall with winXP and used a version of nforce drivers without GART drivers.

    Theory:
    Flashing the bios caused windows to redect mainboard and defaulting to microsoft drivers for your system.

    Solution:
    Reinstall nforce chipset drivers. Possibly force the install of GART drivers.

    After a BIOS update, the most suggestive idea is to check your RAM timing, your CPU clocking, AGP settings, and using any PC utilities to check driver settings.

    Pushing clock frequencies too far can create write errors, which may cause stuttering.

    The only other things I can suggest is to check for any unnecessary background Programs/Services that are eating up CPU.

    The danger of testing after many things have changed is having to systematically eliminate things one by one, and rollbacks often leave you none the wiser what caused an issue.

    Good luck!

    uuuh huh !

    Dude, If you R using any refreshrate overide in the Nvidia control panel,,,Your scores will drop just about that much...Even if your screen looks goofy while running 3Dmark 2001, don't use the overide... But you said you just upgraded your bios....That probably changed a setting that you don't know diddley squat about and Bamm,,,,a slower score..I bet you can change fastwrites also,,maybe you don't know where to look..Check with the Chaintek gurus...They can tell you.. You don't need it enabled....It suckx :D good luck
