    Is my system setup right?

    I just installed an Asus v7100 GF2 MX. It's worlds better than the 16 mb TNT I used to have but I wonder if I can get more out of the Asus card.

    My 3DMark scores are 3496 @1024x768-16 and 2833 @1024x768-32. Can't I do better than this?

    System specs: P3 450 cpu, ABit BE-6 (version 1) mobo, 196 mb ram, Win98SE os.

    What's the first thing you would do to boost performance?

    Those scores sound pretty much as high as you'll get given your CPU. I just ran 3DM2K @1028x768x16 last night and benched 3,516. Of course, I am still running a TNT2U, so my score should be considerably better when I make the upgrade to GF2. Good Luck
