With the system below, I get a 3DMARK3 (Build 340) score of 4540
(53.03 drivers) at standard clocks (400/850), which seems to be rather
low. At the highest stable OC (425/925), I get 4790. Any tips,
suggestions or comments? Thanks in advance.

Intel P4 2.8C 800FSB, HT
ASUS P4P800 Deluxe UAY
OCZ 2X512MB PC3200 Dual Channel EL Platinum
MSI FX5900 VTD128 VIVO

Hmmm.. On a system I worked on, I got 4901 on an FX5900(plain) MSI
card (almost like yours). Not Overclocked.

AMD XP2000 (1.68Ghz) with 512mb Single channel RAM (PC2700)
WindowsXP.

So perhaps you have other issues? Spyware? Adware? too much crap
running on your system. Go into services and shut down some crap.
Locate a program called: "spybot Search and destroy" - 100% free.

Although Intel do not list Windows 2000 as supported for Hyperthreading, it
does in fact work fine. Windows 2000 Pro will handle 1 CPU with
Hyperthreading (due to it's support for up to 2 processors), and Windows
2000 Server will handle a dual processor system (so it sees 4 processors).
The main difference between that and Windows XP is that XP only counts
physical processors against it's limit, therefore Windows XP Pro is able to
make use of a dual processor system with HT where Windows 2000 Pro would
only use the first 2 logical processors, ignoring the 2 additional
processors revealed by the HT technology, and so in this case it would be
better to disable HT so that the 2 processors are running normally and not
reserving resources for handling requests to the 2 logical processors that
will never get used.

Netware and Linux will also handle hyperthreading.

It's possible that better performance may be seen if HT is disabled on the
PC.

True, although it runs all the games I play fine :)
