Not too bad. Maybe not quite what I had expected, but not too bad. Running aquamark3, I got like less than 8,000 using a FX5200. Using this 9600XT, I get over 28,000.

I do seem to notice occasional sound glitches that I didn't before with the nvidia card however. In the halo demo, when I turn the flashlight on, in close quarters, there is sound stuttering. Not sure if this is some conflict between the new card or just not something I noticed before.

Anyway, not too bad of a card, so far. At least I feel I can play future games with a playable frame rate.

not sure why the big discrepancy in scores. Maybe you have some high quality settings in the control panel? I'm on a Pentium 2.4g, so our processors should be comparable.

I get 32000 in aquamark with a 2.5GHz cpu, so it sounds about right for you coolcpu2. Agent_mull, I don't know why you're score would be so low...

that's what I was thinking. I am on the verge of breaking 35k in aquamark with my pro
