    Hiya!

    I recently ran 3DMark03 and It's kinda weird. Okay, I have a Pentium 4 1.9 GHZ Processor with 512 DDR SDRAM and a ATI Radeon 9200 128 MB DDR Video card. What I don't understand is that test 2 and 3 (battle of proxycon and lady with the sword thing) only have a frame rate of 1-3. Whats up with that!? :mad: It moves so slowly. The first test with the airplanes was fine. Is there anything I can do to change this or tweak my puter or something. Help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    that's normal with hardware like yours. If you really want to boost the FPS with that benchmark, you'll need a better video card

    you can probably get a couple more FPS out of it if you lower your video quality settings and decrease your resolution
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Oh man... I just bought this Ati Card a few weeks ago too :(. I used to have an Nvidia GeForce 4 ti 4400 but it started having green dots all over my screen so I had to replace it with the only videocard they had at bestbuy within the pricerange, an ati radeon 9200. booooo...ah well...

    True, but it would also defeat the whole idea with benchmarking.. :)

    Ya only have a DX8 capable vid card and 3DMark03 is really for DX9 capable ones so d/l 3DMark2001SE (build 330) then compare ya scores. BTW don't expect much from a P4 1.9 either.

    Like was said, if you don't have a DirectX 9 compatible card 3DMark03 is NOT for you.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]
