hey dude, btw Spanky, you're hilarious
...just caught up with the thread...didn't get an email telling me there's been more posts...wierd...but whatever.
I have a gf3 OCed to Ti500 levels with a XP 1700+ Tbred OCed to 2400+ levels and I get a terrible score and the benchie doesn't even look that good on my system which runs UT2k3 and Freelancer smooth as a baby's butt. So basically, winXP Pro + gf3Ti500 + XP 2400+ = 1049 3dmarks in the new benchie.
I look jealously at your 4K score!
