I got around the same score (and have a similar system 2.4 P4 HT, 1 Gb Memory, RAID 0, FX5600 128 Mb)
I am sure i had a score of over 10,000 before I used RAID, or it may have been before I doubled the memory. I cant be bothered trying to find out. I will wait till i get a new video card. I think maybe these FX 5600 cards are not what they are cracked up to be in all systems. My friend had a older 2.4 on a Intel bard with a Ti4200 and he had a score of 12,000 running W2k, 10,000 using XP - go figure. I gave up trying to compete,
I just dont worry about it - I mean face it its only a benchmark score - what are the games playing like? too slow or what?
I find all the games I play work perfectly, beats the hell out of my old G4 440 MX - by double the old score, but the games actually dont seem to be any faster - just slightly better effects like water for example looks real.
Mind you if anyone has a reason for these obviously low scores I am still interested.

5600xt has worse clock speeds than a 5200 non ultra...You are getting the correct scores....

from what i understand the 5600XT isnt a very good card. its not like with Radeon where the XT's are the better cards. I think with nvidia, the XTs are the low end cards

that score is correct

well, that cpu has a very low bus speed and the card is questionable too. Are you susing 4x256ddr sticks in that ? There seem to be known issues with some of the 875's running much slower and benching much worse with all four dimms used.....just a thought.

Thanks for the input guys. I guess if this 5600 card sucks as much as you all are saying then maybe I am getting the correct score. I am going to swap in my 4400Ti tonight and see what I get. Should I get a higher score with the Ti running instead?

About the fsb comment I want to OC it, but right now I cant because the BIOS will not allow me to OC with a SATA drive installed. Also, Im using (2) 512 RAM in my slots.

Thanks again.
