i think my 4ghz p4 rig with 9800pro @ 454/380 is more than sufficient, thanks.
3dmark01se is a great test although its not demanding enough anymore. it determines performance based on several factors including ram speed, fsb, cpu clock, and video clocks/chipset.
3dmark03 says to hell with the computer, lets just see what video card you have and assign your score based on that alone. i have seen a 1ghz athlon computer with a highly modified 9800xt score nearly 8,000 while my 4ghz p4 with moderately overclocked 9800pro scores around 6,000-7,000. tell me thats fair? its a good judge of system performance? i will guarantee my 4ghz p4 rig will be a much better gaming machine than the 1ghz amd athlon. the benchmark is completely faulty and should not be used for ANY purpose at all.
