Thread: 3d mark score really lame




  1. #1

    Default

    i got a really bad 3d mark score and my games are running like crap. right now i know its the ram. everything i have is in my sig except right now i am running 128mb pc133 as my ddr is being shipped. will the new ram make a huge jump in performance or is it going to take a new vid card which i cant afford right now. this is default settings. anything i can do to improve in the meanwhile?

    Not only is your video card a GF2 MX, it's the lower end of the MX range. Your video card is definitely the problem here.

    im well aware that this card is a pos. but will the 2x 256mb of pc2100 improve these scores much from 128mb of pc133. yes i already know i need a new vid card.

    Going to DDR, and increasing the amount of RAM you have, will boost overall system performance, but I wouldn't expect too much in the way of a 3DMark score increase. If you're lucky you might break 2100...

    I'm with Beefy, the RAM will help, but to get any decent score you will need a new video card
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    i hear ya man, i really want a 8rda but money is slow so all in good time along with the vid card, im looking 9200/9100/9000 or a ti 4200. which one is the best deal here. (cash/performance).

    the R9100 is an excellent deal - although it is slower than the Ti4200 - it's not so much slower that you notice it during gameplay (I owned one of each for a while)..... & I just picked up a visiontek 250/250 128MB for $69US vs. ~$100US for a Ti4200
