That score seems a wee bit low. I have quite a powerfull pc and the highest i got was 1112, however I am going to buy a new radeon 9800xt so that should send it up to 3-4000.
The best way to improve it is
a/ close every program u can think of before running it eg virus checker, word find fast, the lot
b/go your graphics card homepage and download 2 things, the newest drivers plus a tweaker, this will allow you to adjust ure card setting .
c/ if u know how to, overclock ure processor
d/you can download a program which 'formats' ure ram. Run this prior to runnunig the test.
If u do all this, i bet ure score will get to at least 500

Don't recommend overclocking as unless you know exactly what you're doing you could destroy something. People keep going on about PCMARK and their score is xxxx , so what, I too look at the 3DMARK benchmarks but I see no point in spending hard earned cash buying something to upgrade my score on 3DMARK just for the sake of it. In short if your PC runs what you want it to run without the graphics card glitching or doing weird things leave it alone. Especially since the longer you can wait the cheaper the upgrade will become.

The score is low is because the graphics card wont run the test's properly.

3D Mark 03 is designed for DirectX 9 Test's and Card's. Try the old Version 2001 SE (Designed for DX 8 cards) and you will see an improverment as your card will be designed better for it.

as above if you are happy with how your games play then thats all that is important.not 3dmark scores.

i get about 1000 ish on 3dmark03 and 6000 ish on 3dmark02se with a radeon 9000.

quite poor scores but my games all play perfectly well enough if i lower the display details a tad in the latest games.

the 9100 should cope fine with most new games providing you dont go mad with the display settings and AA etc.

6000 ish on 3dmark01se even

I'm off to close all background stuff and run 3Dmark 2001 SE and 3D mark 03.

I know they'll be low but I don't care !

Back Soon !

Right - finished !!

Erm - not quite a slow as I expected !!

I won't post the exact scores otherwise it becomes a "mine's faster than yours" thread.

Around 3000+ for 01SE and a little under half that for 03.

Good Luck 'iqs'
