Dont bother with overclocking. If your system is running such low numbers when mine is half as powerful, and gets a better score, then something is wrong. Overclocking wont fix it.

Besides, overclocking just puts un-needed strain on your parts and will hurt you in the long run. If you need to overclock your system to run decent, then you need to upgrade. But since you have some good parts, then there is something bottlenecking your system, or something isnt compatible. More then likely, its the second one.

lmao dude... programin got lil to nothing to do with it
and i must say... ur benches r ****... i get higher benches offa a single core system thats got parts like 3 yrs old in it...
ya'll have fun with ya big bad quad core pieces of over glorified crap
until the market is mass assaulted with multi-threading programs.... ur big bad multi cores will be useless lolz
my only suggest would be... try a different benchmark... a more well known and respected one.. 3dmark ftw

Start the D/L before you go to bed, it should be ready in the morning.

excuse my double post.

i just about 15 mins ago became the proud oner of a set of logitech's Z-4 2.1 speaker system. all's i can say is that they are Awesome.

pic wrong size, sorry there ill fix it.


__________________________________________________________________

EDIT: i just today got another 80mm fan for the side of my pc and i also picked up a creative blaster X-fi sound card that coupled with the speakers i just got very recently are astonishingly amazing.


Playback: 24-Bit/96kHz 7.1

Signal-to-Noise Ratio: >108dB (20kHz Low-pass filter, A-Weighted)

Total Harmonic Distortion + Noise at 1kHz: 0.006% (20kHz Low-pass filter)

Recording: 24-bit/96kHz

A great upgrade totaling 170.00 dollars

okie, i whipped out my (POS) digital camera and snapped a few, sorry for the bad light but, it is night time... anyways, ill take an internal and woofer pic later.

kinda side-ish-y pic... it looks betetr in the dark.


Monitor and satellite speakers


my mouse (i like the page forward/back buttons.


my lit keyboard (har har)


another side view




EDIT: i forgot to mention how that 80mm fan helped the cooling. it is aimed in right beside my video card (which was running a bit too hot for my taste [57C] to a stable 45C.. not bad.
