Need some more info, but drivers are usually the cause of my numerous video innacuracies. I ended up settling for the leadtek winfast drivers included with the card, almost 50 3dmark scores higher (3829 205/210 mhz) than the Nvidia reference I had been using (only a 3dmark of 3775). I'm using a gefore2 MX, so there are slight differences, but your card should be smoking mine on 3d marks. Keep trying different driver combos and directx 7 and 8 with them.. Sometimes fresh install of windows can solve all of this rather painfully.

Also overclock the memory. Upping the gpu doesn't really give you much at all. The memory, on the otherhand, will yeild pretty good improvements when overclocked (380 is very reasonable). Is your card running at 4xagp? Drivers sound like a possible culpurate too.

I just realized you said 3dmark2001. Don't worry unless you have a geforce 3 your gunna get a low score and bad fps. Use 2k, it is designed for your card. Not having tweaked out your card that score really isn't that off. What is the rest of your system? That will make a difference as well.

Ummm..
Mojo,

with your rig spec, if you break the score of 8000 on a 3Dmark 2000, your sys is in good shape. If not, then try decreasing the multiplier and increase the FSB on your T-bird. And yeah you've gotta bump that Video Memory speed like what the other guy said.
