ok, now the pc specs.

dual Xeon 3.06G processors
Swiftech 603 heatsinks
4gigs DDR ECC RAM
ATI 9800pro 128MB vidcard
Audigy2 zs soundcard
Intel SE7505VB2 motherboard (7505 chipset)
hard drives arent the greatest, but they are as follows
20G WD 7200rpm (boot drive)
20G Maxtor 7200rpm (slave)
100G WD 7200rpm (storage)
200G WD 7200rpm (storage)
Antec case w/430watt power supply

Why am I getting results this bad?
Anyone know what may be done to increase the performance of this machine?
I have my drivers updated. I was not running any other programs when I ran the test.

The dual Xeons are not great for gaming, but you should be getting higher, I think it is cuz that board is most likely agp 4x, and the 9800 needs 8X

Well, I did some checking and it is an 8x AGP slot.
Maybe someone could run through this and check this board out and let me know what or where I could make some adjustments.

Intel SE7505VB2 board

Yes, I understand I am using server parts for a gaming machine, but shouldn't it still post better numbers than this? Seriously, the components are pretty close to top notch and I was really hoping for better numbers.

I am pretty new to the software enhancement and overclocking scene, but did work on work stations and servers for HP for about 16 months. So, the hardware and build are solid, I know that much. Any and all ideas, help, and comments are appreciated.

I think the reason might be this..

3dMark03 is not designed (AFAIK) with instructions supporting dual processors. Therefore it will more than likely be running on the single processor.

I wouldn't expect more than 6000 on stock settings.

Have you got a compare URL so I can see what you're score is compared to mine. That way I'll see where you are dropping points.

EDIT - looking on Futuremark ORB I can't find a single bench for any Xeons.
BTW, they're based on P3's arn't they?

No, they are based on the prestonia core, and are nearly completely different than the average P4, but extreme editions are closely related to the prestonia..

It doesn't need to be designed with instructions support dual processors. It DOES, however, need to be written using multithreading techniques. It most likely is not, which means it won't take advantage of multiprocessing systems, or even hyperthreading systems.

Does anyone know a good test that this machine can show what kind of performance it is capable of?

During the 3dmark03 I did notice some really low framerates during video testing, but do not know why that would happen since I am running an ATI9800 pro 128MB card. It was so bad, I believe it was down to 3fps at one point, it made me question the card.

In which test was it very slow? Mother Nature?

No, actually it was the fighting girl with the ogres. It dropped to 3fps during that.
The mother nature was a little low as well, but not as bad as the girl with the sword.

The tests are designed to push the card to its limits. I see slow downs in that test with my 5900, as well. You would need something like an X800 to get good FPS in those tests.

There has to be something I can do to improve the scores.....right?

Was it a game test or the CPU test. If it was CPU then 3FPS is good (j/k) But I don't expect much from the test.

You know I did a little search on the Future mark orb this evening . On the 3D Mark03 orb to be exact. I wanted to see just where my P-4 3200 with a 6800GT card stacked up against other P-4's 3000 to 3215 mhz. It was amazing, you see I am number one in the world on that orb in my range. Ain't that something. You lucky people are rubbing shoulders with greatness here!! LOL..............

I think you are refering to the CPU tests, my system is so slow on that part of the test but i only get in the 6000 range, dont worry, personally i dont think thats a bad score concidering we only have 9800pro's
