Ok i just built this new comp listed in my specs. i built it last friday, had an OS installed this past sunday. I am using XP 64 bit. anyways my 3dmark '06 score was only 11,714 marks, my cpu score was 3,618 OCed at 3.87ghz. then today i ran 3dmark at cpu stock speeds of 3ghz and i got 1,000 points lower on the cpu score and total score all together which makes sense, just trying to give more info. i have CCC 8.8 beta installed. My friend whose comp i helped build (fafa2121 here on tpu) gets 12,300 and hes only has a e6750 which was OCed to about 3.6ghz, powercolor HD3870, Asus x38 mobo, 2 gigs of crucial balistix pc 8000 (1000mhz), and a 700 watt psu. What is holding me back? are the drivers for the 4850 not efficient yet?
