    True, true, but he hasn't said a thing about doing anything aside from gaming and your average internet stuff. For gaming and browsing puposes, though, 1 gig is overkill.

    you guys are right. by optimizing the ram timings alone i got a whopping increase... 14000 3d marks to 15,867. with my current computer and dual channel DDR400, you think i could break the 20,000 barrier?

    Yup, exactly.

    That's a correct score now, good that you got it ironed out.

    If you want 20k its going to take about 3300mhz on the CPU with default 9800 Pro clocks (with WinXP + DX8.1 + CAT 3.2).

    So for you, with a little card clockage you will be there with your current setup (but you need the CPU speed).

    think my cpu can do 3.4 if i turn up the juice. dont know about the ram though, may have to up the voltage of that

    If not just run it in the 5:4 ratio (DDR Frequency 320).

    You should be aware that adding another 512mb ram could have compatability problems since dual channel likes matched pairs of ram. That is why fatguy3 sugested selling your old ram and buying two at the same time to ensure a better match.
