Haha. I ran a Windows Experiance test and everything was 5.9. I'm installing Crysis now. One thing I'm kind of troubled about is my dvd drive. It isn't being found. Thankfully I have a Bluray drive that is found.

I think 5.9 is the max score. Right now, I get 5.9 on everything except the CPU, which is a 5.7.Intel Core2Duo e8400 overclocked to 3.6 GHZNvidia 9800 GTX4-gigs DDR2 800 MHZ RamVista 64-bit500 GB 32meg cache harddrive.200 GB harddrive.

Yes, 5.9 is max score. I'm getting between 80-90 fps running AA at 4x on Crysis. Fire fights bump it down to 50-60, but I need to do some optimizing.

Did you buy that CPU yet? If not, then you should get the new X2 7750 released a couple weeks ago:AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 2.7GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Dual-Core black edition Processor - Retail Faster than that X2 6000 and about the same price. In fact, it's about as fast overclocked as an Intel CPU (E8200) coasting 80/90 bucks more.
