Hi all

I had upgraded my system just recently and have encountered an issue. I thought you all might be able to point me in the right direction.

I originally had the following system:
AMDx2 5200 - Asus Crosshair - 2gig Corsair ram - 8800 GTS 640mb - 500 sata HD - on board audio - 620 watt PS - Vista basic 32-bit OS - stock heatsink fan - Apevia case

I have upgraded a few components to the following:
AMDx2 6400 BE - Zalman 9700 cooler - Creative X-fi extreme gamer card - and upgraded bios to 0904

prior to upgrade my 3dMark 06 score was in or around 10,000. So i thought with new additions I would at least get that score again if not higher. unfortunately when I ran 3dMArk 06 I only got a score of 5010.

A friend of mine said the bios that I have 0904 is "not good" and that I should go back to 0804 or before.

Any suggestions please.

Many thanks Danny

Try going with your friend's suggestion and revert back down the BIOS versions. Test the machine again and see if this makes a difference.

Mostly the 3dMark scores are indicative of potential capabilities of systems, so you don't really need to read too much into them. It's more if you like to have bragging rights against your buddies Wink
