    Well then you`ll need to call forensics to investigate the issue.

    its because your cpu is not o/c'd how hard is that to figure out.. bump it up to 3.4 like me and ull see a HUGE difference

    Apparently he used to get a better score with a 640mb gts with the same CPU. Go figure.

    exactly... the card runs very stable so I dont feel like it is the psu.

    I really thought the 880gt should outperform the 640 gts...can someone shed some light?

    It won't outperform it much, only slightly or about the same if you have the 640 with more shaders

    try a different driver, close background processes, and good luck

    Borrow an identically clocked 8800GT from a friend and compare the two results.

    I guess it isnt too far off from the old one but I at least expected the same results. Should I consider an RMA for a 9600? Should be equivalent and save me about 50 bucks?

    jhale2004, check your PCIE mode with 8800GT. Maybe it was locked on 1x..4x.

    I think that's to low for 8800GT, have you try to bench your 8800GT under XP? I've seen many people around with same spec as your would go as high as 10K in XP...

    Others have said it before in this thread, but apparently you didn't see...


    IT'S YOUR CPU.


    Your low CPU speed is limiting what your video card can do.
    If you OC your CPU, your score will go up more than if you OC your video card.

    I have the EXACT same cpu as you, except mine has half the L2 cache size as yours.
    My video card is the same exact one as yours, yet it's clocked much lower and here's my score:


    http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=4685959


    Just to review, we have the same CPU (but yours has twice the L2 cache size).
    We also have the same GPU (but yours is OCed higher than mine).

    My CPU is OCed about ~1ghz higher than yours yet my GPU is OCed lower than yours and my 3dmark score is higher than you what you get.

    Good job Hale and good you were persistent. Now that you have found/fixed the problem, OC some like these guys have suggested.

    My score is 14100 and there's some as high as 17000 post on ORB.
