i went off sandra as a cpu comparison when it started giving a dual core exactly double the score of a single core at the same clock speed..

its just meaningless nonsense in my oppinion.. handy for some things just useless for real life performance comparisons..

I agree m8, I find Sandra inaccurate (and biased towards AMD)

i dont think any synthetic benchmark can give a dual core cpu real life perfromance figure..

simply doubling the figures compared to a single core at the same speed is quite clearly rubbish..

dual cores have kinda muddied the water somewhat..

benchmarks massively exagerate real life gains.. they always have..

but i know what u mean about them making your system seem crap.. he he he

yeah its after you invest so much hopeing to see the program give you a better performance gain ...and all the sudden its either like 100 points higher or ..the same if not less ha...i hate benchmarks

for example

My system

Amd Athlon XP 3800+ AM2 Dualcore (o/ced to 2.40ghz)
1.5gigs of PQI Turbo Ram (ddr2 800)
200gig SATA2 Maxtor drive
40 gig WD standard IDE Drive
Powercolor x800gto 256mb gddr 3
Gigabyte mobo with nvidia nforce4 chipset

and in 3dmark05 i get 4642 marks...
that seems pretty low...:\

its about right for your grfx card.. and with frame rates where u are its represenative of real life gameing.. one benchmark that with your system is telling a reasonably true story..

your system is well and truely gpu bound.. the only way to improve your gaming is with a new grfx card.. there have been some big price drops recently.. a card with twice the grunt wont cost a fortune any more.. twice the grunt will take your score up to 7 or 8 thousand-sh and do the same for your gaming frame rates..

256 of memory is enough u just need something like an 1800xt or slighly better..

trog

ps.. spending money on anything else will be wasted.. in your case u need a better grfx card..

ps.. 2.. do not buy a lesser card thinking that cos it has 512 memory onboard it will help.. 512 wont help in the slightest its gpu and memory speed u need..
