    BTW the Tropic one was all default settings apart from a resolution of 1680x1050.

    Sorry, the second post I made had a link eventually to this download:

    X3: Terran Conflict Rolling Demo - FileFront.com

    Although this is a 400+MB download! Also the score I posted related to this demo..
    I'll bench using the 'Tropical' set and post the result. There should be quite a difference with my 2-core compared to your quad..

    Ok... I just benched but used slightly different settings. I took a screenshot (F12) of the result. My settings were at
    DX10
    1280x1024 Resolution
    Fullscreen
    2xAA
    4XAF
    Reflections 'on'
    Ambient occlusion 'on'

    Score 1119
    Avg fps 44.4

    Oh, don't you think the music is really cool?

    OK kemical, i will run the test again myself and take a screenshot and post it on here.
    I see from your screenshot you have service pack 2 installed. I did not know that was available.
    I will download the other demo you provided a link for but the server must be slow as i have a 20mb internet connection and am only getting a transfer rate of 80kb/s at the moment.

    hey kemical. I just downloaded the free version of 3D Mark Vantage and here is a link to my systems score. Not as good as the fastest system shown next to mine but not too bad i suppose.

    I ran the test but lost the page lol.. Anyway my score was P7000. I told you your quad would make the difference. I think my CPU score was around 4000 whilst yours is over 11,000! I think it's stupid that you can only run the test once as 3 runs would give you an average.
