    thats about right for your setup, so no worries. still wouldnt hurt to throw a dual core in thou ;) games these days are taking advantage of multi core cpu's more and more.

    i think with a Q6600 and two GTX' the average in 06 is around 13k-15k i think. do it for the gaming. not the benchmarks ;)

    Thanks
    so it does look as though it can make a decent amount of difference..but not as much as i would want....so ill carry on and upgrade WITH

    M/B = PCI-Express Mainboard - SLI nForce 680i SLI(C55XE) - Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad-Core - ATX

    PROC = Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q6600 Quad Core Processor(2.4GHz,8MB Cache,1066MHz)

    RAM = 2GB DDR2 Memory - 667MHz

    Hope these are what i should get ?




    p.s.

    still strange to me that with SLI turned off in driver my score is 7447 and turned on its 8050..oh well

    And many thx for the responces :approval:

    Your cpu can't feed the cards anymore data so your performance increase is minimal.

    You can get ddr2 memory @ 800mhz for a good price nowadays. I would buy some good corsair or ocz memory that is running @ 800mhz so you can oc that q6600.

    Better, good choice. OCZ is known for stable memory and they overclock pretty good
