I guess a high score isn't all you're looking for. I can ramp up the engine and memory clocks using powerstrip, and each time get a higher score in 3dmark. But each time the quality of the picture gets worse, more and more little spots of primary color. What is the name of that phenomenon? maybe I should post a small screen shot so you'll know what I mean.

Thanks John. Here's what I mean:

I guessed that was it, as it goes away when I reduce the engine/mem clock. Is this pixilization? Or something else?

I suppose the next thing would be to raise the engine a different amount than the mem...

But anyway just having a high 3dmark score doesn't say all that much, apparantly.

Now I have about four of those color spot following my mouse around, hope I haven't ruined anything.
