Your score is low because your graphics card isn't as good.

I have no idea why you have such a low graded video card, while your other components aren't that bad.

So these scores are purely for video cards? is there a test to actually test the computer speed? cause i bought the computer new and wanted to know if its running at the proper speed.....i got a bad video card cause i dont play games alot therefor just used the video card that i alread had in the system before. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good but cheap video card better than mine?

Read the test's title..

3Dmark03.

Depends what you consider cheap.

100 dollars = GeForce 5700
70 dollars =GeForce 5200

There are more expensive ones, but I thought anything over 100 bucks isn't cheap.

this site. 3dmark05 is purely for graphics testing. I get around 4360 marks...

If you want a better video card and are willing to spend $100-$200 this is a very good cardfor the price.

Yeah, that would get you around 3000-4000. A nice card, btw. Too bad it's only 128mb, like mine. I would get 1000 more marks if I have 256mb. Of course, it's 256bit so it's still fast... lol. Yeah.
