    You know what? I dont really care how much I paid for it. You can hack up my system all you want that I paid 2-3 times more than you. Big deal. I built the computer I wanted and that's that. If you pulled those scores, that is impressive. I really don't put much stock into benchmarking anyways. I feel as long as I can play any game or run any graphic program perfect with no choppy graphics, I am fine with that. Btw, what were your framerates like in the stuff it was benchmarking with? I am curious.

    BTW, its not the dual core extreme version. That is still just the regular pentium D. Why dont you tell me the setup you have? That way I can see exactly how much it would cost to build your system.

    You are supposed to leave it on 1280X1024 to compare it with all the other people that leave it there. Running it @ 1024X768 is easy for a 6800GT, never mind a 7900GT. Even at that lower resolution that is still not an overly impressive score impressive score. I get 4880 with my X1800XT on stock clocks and my CPU around 2.9GHz with 1280X1024.

    Besides, 3D Mark 06 is not the best benchmark to use for comparisons. It easily throws out bogus scores and the results are never consistant. Use 3D Mark 05. That way you cannot change the defaults to make your scores look better.

    Actually the first post says to use 1024x768.

    No synthetic benchmark is the best to use for comparison. It just gives you a number that makes you feel fuzzy about your computer's performance.

    LOL!!! My bad. Most of the scores on the ORB are 1280X1024 as that is the default setting. Even @ the lower settings the scores are not the much better. And yes, I also agree that benchmark scores are just for status. I used to place more importance on benchmarks, but I am tired of killing parts for scores and I also geared my PC towards gaming now.

    the lowest frames were 18...and i didnt mean to "bash" your system or price. i was just happy i found a computer that can hold up with an uber-expensive machine, that is all. i know your frames might have been a little bit higher, but oh well.

    It is not a pentium dual core extreme edition. it is the regular dual core. The extreme edition I believe has more front side bus.
