I don't get it.
I'm runnin a 850 Duron on a A7V133 Raid (raid disabled) mobo at 1045.
FSB @ 110 and multiplier @ 9.5
My core is maxed for this board @ 1.85V
RivaTNT2 16meg Video (though a guy with the same set up scored a whopping 1485)
I just don't get it.
Anyone have any tips on gettin this kickin!
Thanks

Is it 3dmark 2001 or 2000 ?

anyway your TNT riva 16mb is your problem, this is a very slow card...
U might want to uppgrade......

I know my vid card ain't the greatest but the guy I was comparing scores with was running the same vid card, same cpu, same memory. And ya can't cheat on the test outcome. I am runnin the 3Dmark 2001. Now, I'm kinda stumped when it comes to the fsb and multiplyer settings. I have run it with a 100 FSB and 10 Mult. And i have run it 133 FSB and 7.5 Mult.
The system pretty well scores the same thing. What does changing these settings do to the performance of the machine if the actual cpu speed stays relatively the same in the end? Thanks for the input guys. A new vid card is on the way come pay day ;)
