3dmark05 gives similar things as 04 does, i think.

1. guess you mean 03 instead of 04

2. I have ca. 13*** points in 03 vs. ca. 6*** points in 05 (no oc'ing - 3800+ & 6800U)

3. I 'heard' that the 05 is a more overall benchmark again where as 03 was more directed on GFX results only...

cheers

might be - didnt have the time yet to test it out myself.. this is only what i 'heard' going around as a rumour.. but then again , rumours are like housewife stories - to be enjoyed with a 'korreltje zout'

I agree with the above.
I finally OCed my rig.
FX53, 1 gig Corsair PC3200XLPro (2336), BFG UltraOC Waterblock, Koolance Exos Al.
Cpu @ 2.4 stock, BFG @ 450/1100 = 4611
Cpu @ 2.6 multiplier at 13 (13x200), BFG @ 450/1100 = 4655
Not much of a jump if you ask me. 3dMark05 seems to be GPU intensive.
I may try booting with the multiplier at 14 just to see if it works, but then I'll leave it at 2.6 and be happy. I'll let you know.
