what good is a 64 bit processor on a 32 bit platform..

how much do you want to spend, the big price break is between the 3700+ and the 3800 or 4000+

any 64 is gonna run on a 32 bit no problem, but if you get the 64bit platform its going to use the other 32bits.

On 3D mark 03 my computer only scored a 1211. It was a budget build up and I know it doesn't have the best components but this kinda irks me. It's a P4 3.0Ghz, ASRock P4S61 800mhz FSB, 512MB 400mhz Ram, and a GeForce 5200 256MB Vid card. The whole thing was right around 500 bucks and I know I need to bump up my RAM at least another gig. Are there any settings or anything I can/need to change to boost this a bit? It's not overclocked (I don't think so, I haven't changed it) and I'm not sure how. Any help is appreciated.

you can't really go by the 2003 score on my comp, it was coded for the new hardware out there.

5059 on 2005 is a damn good score, FX machines hit 6000-6500

and im not doen config'in everything, I still need an updated Bios and motherboard driver because I don't think they take in to account the SanDieago core.

I still got some work to do, just wanted to toss up some score for people

I think I need to update my BIOS, my current version is 2.5 and I think there's a 2.6 out there. Will this make much of a difference?

I just benchmarked on 3Dmark2001 and scored a 5616. I guess that's not too bad, considering I built the system I listed above plus 52X CD-RW, 80 gig harddrive, good case (3 fans), 450 watt PS, for $500.
