Once you get into benchmarking with 3D mark you'll notice there are ways to get your score up. Pretty much everyone uses these tweaks (basically just general tweaking with drivers etc, I don't even want to go there - I want to keep this short!)
So don't worry about your score now. With tweaking and with your set up you could propably add almost 2000 points.
So whats the point with this program then? Well, good quastion. I have not really find any real world use for it except competing for scores with other benchmarkers LOL ...
