hi chaps just did a 3d mark on the old pc and got a score of 4989 is this a good score??
Yep it's a good score (assuming 3d2003)if you've got a similar spec'd pc to me (xp2700+, 1024mb pc2700 ddr, radeon 9700pro). If you've got a better system then I'd expect it to be better than around 5000. Did you do a online comparison with your project (you can compare with G cards and processors ect to see how yours compares)as that's the whole point of the benchmark
Yoy don't mention which 3d mark you used as 2001 & 2003 have drastically different scoring systems i.e what would have scored around 12,000 on 2001 might score around 4000 on 3d 2003.
3d mark 03 was the version i was using with a xp2800 amd 512 ram (one stick 2700 ; other 2100??) and a radeon 9800 pro would a stick of 512 ram be better which speed???
More memory is always a help
Also matching speeds is always best as your 2100 is holding back your 2700 memory. Most new games are quite memory hungry so 1024Mb would be worth having (pc2700 at least to make use of 166 fsb your cpu uses) but 512 is adequate to run most games
Whole point of the benchmark, Hawklord?
I thought that was... bragging rights!
"Ooo, I got sixteen points more than you!" etc. etc.
3D Mark 03 is very graphics card dependant but 01 is more an overall test of the machine,cpu,gfx card and ram.
If I was you I would dump the pc2100 as its slowing your pc2700 down to its speed and try and get another stick of 2700.
I used to be able to hit 58** something in 03 when I had a XP2800 and even now with faster ram and a different CPU its still hovers round that mark.
If you want a more realistic indicator of machine speed run 3D Mark 2001.I am in the early twenties with that now with my XP2500 Mobile
the window onmy case i have two neon fans which are quite noisy what is the best position for fans inside a pc also is there such a thing as silent fans
Yes, Zalman supply a range of silent cooling solutions for your processor and graphics card, power supply, and even noise reducing cases.
