I have to tell you that a small monetary investment has paid in great dividends.

New scores for 3dMark 2001 is 5951 (click here for image).

I am done tweaking for the time being. I have spent enough hours and have become gravely familiar with my new motherboard's softmenu III, so I think it's time to sit back and use this system for a while.

I won't be going anywhere, but I need a break from benchmarking!! This has been a culmination of everything I have learned since April on this site. For those, like Placid and Zoop, who have been encouraging and helpful, I say thanks. It's all paid off :)... well, except for my credit card, that might take a month or two!!

Wow........really....Wow......that's what I'm talkin' about. What a score. Great job man. You see, persistence really does pay off :) It's cool to be able to share your victory with fellow O/Cer's too. Congrats. You've got the right idea, just sit back and enjoy your computer. Nothing like a cold DNA and a Quake killing spree.

Just as an update on my situation, I got a new Geforce 2 GTS with 64mb of DDR and I must say it's a lot nicer than the MX card. The ddr memory is amazing, I love it. I don't have my 3dmark scores on hand with me right now but keep a look out for A post I intend on doing that will compare the MX with the GTS. I'll be back to tweaking on my card again and I don't' think it will include any orbs this time ??? I did order a Super micro fine silver contact pen to try fixing my MX card. I figured it's worth a try. That project will at least waste an hour if nothing else :)

Congrats and enjoy. Hope you don't have to sell your first born child to pay it off ???


*edit*
And one more thing. YOUR WELCOME I'm always willing to help out , even if I send my gremlins after your PC hardware. "Whistle while you work"

I have too many kids as it is.

I get 80FPS in UT at highest everything, 32 bit, and 1024x768... I'd say that rocks!!

I get 6303 on my 3DMark2k1.

If I had enough cooling to run a reactor core stable for a few hours (like you do), I might be there too! :)

Love this card though, even if I'm not the king-of-the-hill.

By the way, I scored an even 11000 on 3DMark2000 today. WOOHOO! LOL!

I was wondering what it would be like to see 5 rows of numbers... you didn't happen to make a screen shot?

That's very high, even with good equipment that's a great score. Of course, we're really dwarfs compared to some out there (using dry ice/liquid nitrogen for super-overclocking).

Naturally, artifacting for video is like blue screens booting windows while overclocking your cpu... it doesn't count unless it works (and in this case, the video is smooth and flawless).
