2251/2094 is my score with this brand new ram I just got. Its 512 PC3000 XMS Corsair Cas 2 ram. I just put it in a few hours ago and I am wondering why my score is so crappy. Do I need to change anything in my bios? im running at 173 fsb, idk what my dram clock is set to. Im using an abit kx7-333r. If you can help please help :)

you're actually in the Normal range for a Athlon based system.. You'll never reach P4 memory scores. (never say never, but I doubt it) A P4 default with PC2100 beats your score in Sandra, but it doesn't mean much.. Make sure your ratios are correcting in the bios.
