  • Futuremark 3DMark06 game performance test

    So I download this performance checker to see what my system might do. Mind you, I have no fantasies of having a game machine and thought it might be a little bit better than it was. My desktop utterly fails everywhere I think. I do have enough freespace on my harddrive I believe . There was a graph on the page that didnt get copied for some reason, but mine was far to the left almost to the margin and was well well well well well under the minimum recommended system.

    I was told that Futuremark's test held no value at all. Only game performance mattered. Well, that may be true, but my system falls so far short of their recommended minimums I was kinda amazed. I do have a ASUS m50sv-a1 on order here (phase 1 so far) so this laptop should flat blow the doors off of my present desktop.


    I have a 2.53 gig pentium4 processor, 512 meg ram, geforce 440MX 64meg graphic card, 80 gig hard drive, no idea on mb, ps is out of old computer as the one in this one burnt up one day, windows xp operating sys.

    It seems weird that my processor is a 2.53ghz processor and only runs at 1893mhz. My system is ~6 years old. Is it worth fixing it up at all or not?
