    I have been running Windows 2000PRO SP2 system for the past 3 months.<br>
    I have done about every tweak as much as possible except overclock.<br>
    My stock 3dmark 2001 scores were 5183. I knew it could get faster even for a system with PC133 memory.<br>
    I just recently installed XP Pro, ran the Microsoft updates, installed<br>
    23.11 drivers and installed 3dmark 2001. My score is now 6233 which is about right for this system. <br>
    My next two tests will be to do a clean install of Win98SE and Windows 2K pro to see what the scores will be.<br>
    Here's my system:<br>
    Tyans2390b bio 1.10<br>
    Athlon XP 1600<br>
    1gb PC133 SDRAM (Crucial 2x 512mb)<br>
    XP Pro <br>
    23.11 dets<br>
    Visiontek Geforce 3TI200<br>
