Are these scores strictly for the video card performance? I'm only getting a score of 875 With a all in wonder 128 pro. any suggestions?

The 3dMark 2001 benchmark is tough. It is ONLY for video card performance, though it does run a CPU benchmark.

You probably get decent performance right now from your card.

If it looks good in games, don't sweat the low score. The 3dMark2000 benchmark will give you better numbers as that card was released over a year ago and the 2000 benchmark was released to test your type of card. 2001 is geared toward the next generation of cards, like the Radeon 2 and Geforce 3.
