I recently took a 3DMark03Pro and got a score of :

9847

Now, i seen other people who have scores with 11000+ with neally identical specs.

I have

Athlon™ XP 3200+, 2187MHz @ 44C
1024MB (1x512 @ DDR400 PC3200) (2x256 @ DDR PC2700 or 3200, not too sure)
ATI RADEON X800 XT Platinum Edition @ 35C
350W Power Supply Unit
37GB Harddrive Seagate


I'm using DirectX 9.0c and latest ATI Catalyst drivers, cheers.

Any help will be appreciated.

I take it your're using catalyst 4.12 drivers? also, you want 2 identical memory sticks in there, ideally. Make sure AA and AF are turned off in the videocard driver options. If that doesnt help, a reformat and reinstall of windows, followed by installing drivers in this order: motherboard, video, directx 9.0c

Ok, it may sound stupid but, i didn't EVEN install my mobo drivers.
