    hi all ,i hope some1 can help me witha small 3d mark problem i have.

    for the last few months ive been seriously underscoring in it.

    i used to get around 15,700 on xp ,with my system specs listed but a 9800gtx.

    then i switched to vista and then only scored around 13,500 ,after upgrading to my current gtx260 i get just over 15k !! still lower than what i got on xp.

    is it vista making my scores this low ? i knew they would be a bit lower than what id get on XP but that much lower? i thought i would get at least around 16-17k .

    im not going back to XP simply for the scores ,but its a little annoying getting a lower score with a better card.

    with pretty much your specs, on vista i get (fully fledged @ 3.8) 18K 3dmarks. @ 3.2 i too get just over 15k marks, so nothings wrong haha.

    Its not useless, it just drops your scores a bit - it doesnt reflect in actual gaming performance though, so who cares? ;)
