    Put quite simply you are heavily cpu limited in 05.

    My system (per sig) scores a little over 13.5k with my card at stock. A 25mhz overclock to my 8800's core and memory gives me a 20 point increase in 05 compared to a 300point increase in 06 hence I am cpu limited.

    Run 3Dmark06 to give your card a proper work out

    Xtrememusic has full specs of X-Fi chip. Xtremegamer has not.

    They both give, and I quote from Creative website...

    "that boosts real game performance by up to 15% over motherboard audio"

    The guy wants to speed up his rig as much as possible, and gets X-fi sound on the cheap. What's your point?

    do not want to overclock it cause the temps seem high at stock , got the fan running at 100% and it is still 55c-60c idle

    I was wrong, it does have full x-fi chip features. What I meant was xtremeaudio but that's not the case here. :O

    Your score is 100% normal. Overclock it and you can get 1000 more.
    The reason why your score is lower is your CPU.
    If you don't beleave me, don't overclock your CPU and you will only have 11000+ ;)

    That temperature is 100% normal.
    You can get 650Mhz/2000Mhz, just like me :)

    if yoru computer doesnt lag in any game or doing anything then dont worry about overclocking because it usually only helps in benchmarking but for me it helped alot in bf2142 1280-1024 everything on high setting AA maxxed and even inhanced in the control panel

    I have an 8800GTS 320 and get 8635 in 3d Mark 06, I'll try out 05 tomorrow.

    I noticed someone mentioned that on board sound drags you down, how much so? I have been thinking about a sound card any good dirt cheap recommendations (bearing in mind I could not give a stuff about 3D bells and whistles)?

    I don't know why on-board sound would influence an application that doesn't utilize sound. A cheap sound card wouldn't take the load off the CPU as far as I know...

    Sukovsky your AsRock 939Dual-Sata is a dual solution motherboard. It has an AGP Slot aswell as PCI-E x16 slot among others. Your PCI-E x16 slot is likely only running at x4 or x8 which is likely down to chipset limitations. So on that i can only guess that this is the cause of your slightly lower benchmark results.

    To confirm just go into your nvidia control panel (under xp that is) and it will tell you the slot operating speed.

    When I had my Asrock Dual 939 board it ran full 16x PCIe with no issue. Even going down to 8x PCIe speed has a less then 2% performance impact in most cases. I doubt very much it is that, but might be worth checking just in case.
