Thats what the hell I'm saying I won't win. like highlander there can only be one winner no ties here.
so yes like the lotto I won't win, i bet someone already sent in a verified 1 score before i even woke up and read this
Guys.. getting the score of 1 is not easy. SO don't assume there's a 1 already. Plus if there's a 1 I'm sure they will post it here since it is first come first serve. Eg first submission wins.

either do something or zip It. if you dont plan to succed/win you plan to fail/loose.

I just got a clarification from PowerColor regarding the rules. No notebooks of any kind are allowed. No exceptions for MXM

Also the best score so far is not 1 so you still have chance

It is too bad no notebooks are allowed. I only have one desktop with 3Dfx VooDoo 5 5500 AGP, but that is not support DirectX 9 effects for 3DMark03.

If it's an integrated graphic card with Dx9 is it considered as a stand alone card?
