I just reformatted my computer, and used the ALI drivers from the cd this time, and it installed this Hard drisk caching utility. I had to turn off DMA so i could hit 162fsb (976 = 162 X 6) and i scored 1921! Thats 41 points higher then i used to at the same speed.

I am only 59 points away from the highest score! (VooDoo3 2000/3000 defualt bench, Duron)

I thought i heard some people say that the A7A266 wasn't a good performer. Well.....BLAHHH LoL.....I am in such a good mood.

It was 9:00 am when i got the score. My parents were sleeping, and all you hear is AHHHHHAHAHA!!!

SWEET!

Are you talking 3dmark2001? 9000? Thats a high score!

Im also waiting for the new radeons to come out. I have always loved ATI, i had a radeon 32mb DDr, but it died of unknown causes LoL. Well, it really isn't dead. I can use it, but i get letters and numbers all over the screen.

For your setup that is a good score.

Benchmarking scores are inversely proportional to your wallet -- the slimmed your wallet, the fatter the score.

I didn't spend alot of money on this setup.

I paid 250 shipped for the ram, motherboard, and cpu. The heatsink was 8 dollars, the fan free. I got my 2 10gb western digitals for free, and my VooDoo3 for 10 bucks. I got my 36X cdrom for free. I got my 4X dvd for 5 dollars. The power supply/chassis i got for 55 at a computer show. My monitor for free, and my intellimouse optical (infared) free. My Microsoft split keyboard cost me 20.
