    Well a while ago I ran 3DMark03, I know my system is not DX9 hardware, and I got a score of about 800. I was wanting to improve this now and when I ran 3DMark03 again I got a score of 404. 404! WTF??!! These are the only things that have changed since the first test with 8003DMarks:

    1.) Catalyst 4.3 Drivers Installed
    -These solved all my problems and give better pefromance, this would not make sense if it lowered my score
    2.)Updated Intel INF Drivers for me chipset
    This should improve score shouldn't it?
    3.)I lowered the clock speed of my overclocked Radeon AIW Radeon 9000PRO and am now running it at 16xAF and 4xAA because games are so beautiful like that
    -I know lowering clock speed would lower my score, but I needed more stability and when you lower clock speed by 15mhz it will not cut your score in half
    -I love playing games with 16xAF and 4xAA but would this dramatically lower my score like that?

    Um, lowering the clock, and having AA and AF that high does lower your score dramatically...what do you expect? :?:
