    You dont just happen to have alot of other programs running when your running the benchmarks do you?

    Well anyway, make sures its in 8X AGP as well. Also, download a Tweaking utility such as Powerstrip and ensure your Clock frequencies are running properly

    hum now this is the thing. there is no agp 8x setting in bios even though both the card and the mobo support it (Says so on the box). I tried to use smartgart to change it through windows but when i reboot it stays at 4x. Someone with a p4p800 help me out here?

    Dude, something is majorly scerwed up, you should be getting 16,000+. Check every setting that your friend has and make sure yours is the same. If that happens and still no good, then it sounds like a bad install, and you might have to re-install your OS.

    I'd get a replacement for your motherboard. It seems to be the problem in this situation. Since you've got a relatively new one, the store should give you a replacement if that's the problem.

    How could it be a mobo problem? It seems to be something with drivers or something. Id reformat and reinstall and see what happens
