    Need some help with 3DMark scores in Win2000

    I seem to be stuck around 5000 3DMarks with my current setup, which includes:

    P3-700@933
    Abit BE6-II
    256MB PC133 Mushkin Hi-Perf 1.5 at 222
    GeForce2 GTS 32MB Clock:225, Memory:350
    Tekram DC-390U2W
    WD 10k 9.1GB Ultra2 SCSI drive

    I'm running the Detanator 6.50 drivers, and I've set the D3D Texture memory to 63MB, and set the drop down menu to "Best Performance"

    I also have the GeForce tweak utility and set it to "Fast Performance"

    I'm running the benchmark at 1024x768x16, triple buffering, VSync off, 16 bit Z buffer.

    I have no noticable screen lagging playing UT in 32bit color at the same resolution, I ran the time logging once and seemed to be getting around 50-60fps on average.

    Are there any settings I can use, or perhaps another version of the drivers works better in Win2000? Thanks for any help.

    Acually 5000 seems to be a pretty good score in Windows 2000. Get DirectX 8 for one, unless you already have it. Then you may want to try out the 7.5x series or the 11.xx series. Some people have had quite a performance increase with the 11.xx series. However that increase usually took place in 3dmark 20001 and nothing else.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I've just installed DirectX 8, and I'm about to run 3D Mark 2k again right now.

    I installed the 7.58 drivers last night and it bumped my score up to 6200, an increase of 1200 3DMarks!!

    I'm going to download the 11.01 drivers and see if they help out any at all, and I'll post the results.
