I got 11990 marks on a gigabyte ga 7vaxp mobo, xp 1700, 256mb of generic pc2100, and a radeon 9700 pro. Bad? Good? Thats at default settings in 3d mark, aa at 2x.

I think its a decent score to get if you're running your system un-overclocked, I bet if you up your FSB as high as it will go stable you'll be able to get much higher scores, 3DMark2001 is very FSB dependant, which is the reason why you see mostly Intel P4 systems dominate the 3DMark2001 scores.

Ok let 3dmarkse do the settings for your graphics card. I wouldn't change them. Most people get around 15000 with a 9700.

Check my 3dmark score in my sig. That's with a ti 4200.

I formatted and clean installed windows xp (before i was running 2k) and I installed all the drivers for the card and mobo. 12124 3d marks.... so I should be getting higher than that?
