    His score should be around 40,000-55,000

    Thanks for the speedy reply guys..

    I sorted it out.. I had the Omega Drivers for catalyst 5.10a installed. Now I have the Omega equivalent Catalyst 5.12.
    But I think the big difference must've come from installing the VIA 4-in-1 drivers for my newly installed mobo (I'm guessing the AGP slot was only running in Windows as an AGP 2.0, and not an AGP 3.0).
    You know - I thought I'd done that already
    I'm sure with some tweaking and OCing I can eke out another 1000 pts, but as it stands at 49950, I'm happy with a nearly 100% improvement!
    So let that be a warning.. MOTHERBOARD DRIVERS!

    I am pretty sure with some tweaking and ocing you can get around 52,000 or more.

    Considering he's got a 9800 PRO 256MB card, 55K is not out of the question. What core is tha 9800 running? If it is the R360 core, you may want to consider flashing the bios on it to the 9800 XT. You won't see any huge gains, but IMO, they clock better that way. I had one that would do 450/435 on air that way, and would only do 420/425 before flashing.

    Well, i had a 9800 128mb non pro, flashed to a pro, and got around 54,000, and my specs was lower than his so no doubt 55k is not out of the question.

    I believe it's a Sapphire with an R360 core.
    I have considered bunging an Arctic Cooler on there and flashing it to XT, but my motto is, if you can't afford a replacement, don't o/c it (unless you have to) and I really can't afford squat. Most things are running cool on it now (Call of Duty 2 is at about 25fps max textures @ 1024, which is good enough for me)

    You won't hurt it if you use the Arctic Silencer and flash it to an XT. The card will hardly notice the difference and will run cooler than at stock with the stock heatsink/fan. You would get much higher performance than you do now. The 9800 PRO 256MB card is in reality a XT, but they were using both cores (R350/R360) to make them so they slowed them down to prevent issues with the R350 core. I ran my cars @ 430/425 24/7 for 6 months and never once had an issue. I then sold it to a friend who has run it @ stock XT speeds for the last 8 months. But in the end, if you are happy, that is all that matters.

    Thanks casecutter.
    If that's the case, then I might give it a go.
    Running an Arctic Silencer is probably a good idea anyway - most of my components are fairly quiet, but when I stuck the 9800 in, it wailed like a banshee!
    At worst, sounds like I'd get some peace and quiet. :)
