System in question is in the sig. Well, I ran 3dM2k a few days ago, and got a 1100 or 1400, can't remember exactly. I ran it again the next day and got a freakin 100, ran it again and got a 90!! It also says my cpu speed is 44-88mhz, when Sandra and CPUID show 500~. I just got DX 8.1, new mobo drivers, and have the newest nvidia driver. A friend of mine has almost an identical system, and he gets better performance out of games like serious sam, moh, even quake 3.
