Hiya,
I am wondering if my new Geforce 3 (Visiontek) is performing to its potential. I see others with Higher scores.
I am getting 5750 points in 3dMark 2001.
I am able to overclock it to 240/550 stable,
Although I am running it slower at the time to keep the temps down while the weather is hot here.

Thanks!

They arent bad, but could be higher, you should be in the 6000's with that setup. Have you installed the Via 4-in-1 drivers? Because that should help quite a bit.

Yes, I have the 4-in-1 drivers loaded. However, they may not be the newest ones. What are the latest?

I think the last I checked there were some betas available in the 1.29-1.30 range

They work fine for me (on my Abit VA6 P3 board)

I re-installed newer 4-in-1 drivers (ver 4.32). Still I am getting no more than 5750 points in 3dMark 2001 with 1024x768 32bit.
I am using the 12.40 drivers with clock at 230/545 currently.

Whoops. my bad. I meant 4.2x-4.3x!! I swear!! anyway, that's good/right in line with the benchmarks I've seen for 3dmark2001, it would not be for 2000.
