    I just ran 3DMark 03 and got 18278 with my 7600GS (stock) in SLI.

    I dont know much about benchmarks. Whats good? And does OCing the CPU and Memory help?

    I am using 3 WD 160's in a Raid0.

    Hey mark, well I know for sure that OCing the CPU helps (at least in 3dM05). It's probably just adding to the CPU test score, but hey, it's points right? :D At 3.0GHz I got 5592 and at 3.75GHz I got 5786... so it sure doesn't hurt :) OCing the memory? Dunno on that one. Typically if you OC your CPU it doesn't work out to well to OC your memory. Typically if anything, you want to loosen your memory latencies when significantly raising your FSB, it helps adds stability.

    My 05 score was 8382 (stock), I dont have the 3DMark 06 yet.

    I noticed that the score was higher when I was using the DFI mobo. Right now I am using the Epox.

    EDIT: I just raised the cores 50 each on the videocards and reran 3DMark 05, the new score is 9052..
