I just got a Radeon 8500 128 DDR at Compusa. They screwed up and gave me the 128 for the price of the 64m, that was the one I was going to buy, but I'm not complaining! Anyway I just ran 3D mark 2001se and I scored just over 8000. Is this acceptable for this card? My rig is back to stock setting to run the test,NO O/Cing! any info would be helpful.:D

Yes that's a good score.
You got a pretty good deal there. In case you start to feel guilty, I'll be happy to trade cards with you.
What drivers are you running?

I tried to install the new certified drivers and it didn't work, so I'm running the January drivers right now.

I have heard of the Radeon 8500 128 MB DDR getting a little above 10,000 but it might have been overclocked so don't take my work for it. I think I saw it at TomsHardwareTomshardware.com

Go ahead and give it a look and that is one nice card you got there.

Did you uninstall the drivers and clean "ati" stuff out of the registry before you tried to install the new ones?
