    Me and my 5900 ultra. I loved it. I did. Then I tried the 3dmark2001se benchmark. And scored 11560. I checked forums and have seen people with radeon 9600 pro's get higher scores than that.

    Here's my setup:

    p4 3.0 HT
    512mb pc3200 RAM
    120gb WD hard drive
    BFG 5900 Ultra


    Ran the benchmark at 1024 Rez. w/ 32 bit color. No AA/AF/V-sync
    Changing from quality to performance settings don't help much.

    What is wrong with it?.... I made sure it was snugly plugged into the agp port..connected a power plug to it. What can I do to correct this.. Please reply/help. Many thanks!

    Give us brands and models of your hardware, Mobo + Ram, PSU for example...

    BFG Cards certainly are cheap... you should maybe look at see if that brand simply isn't very good.
