    Alright my friend just purchased an ATI Radeon 9800Pro and currently is running an Athlon XP 2400+ @ 2600+ on an Asus A7N8X Deluxe rev2 motherboard with 512MB ram. He just installed Win2k3 Std edition and ran 3dmark 2003 and 2001se. In 2003 he recieves roughly the same score as he does in WinXP but in 2001se he gets almost 2400 points less. He was using the CAT3.6 Drivers and the Latest official Nvidia Drivers for his motherboard which were 2.46 I believe. He has the hardware acceleration turned all the way up as well as all the configurations checked out. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I would think that the loss in 2001 could be related to the fact that Windows 2003 is a "SERVER" product not a desktop OS. CPU cycles are probably distributed much differently so 3DMark 2001 would suffer because it is far more CPU dependent.

    i understand that it is a server OS but I have also read about other people actually getting better 2001se marks with 2k3 then with XP. That is why Im curious if there is any thing that might need to be configured differently.

    Edit: sorry forgot to say that 2k3 is also less resource intense then XP is.

    Well, how are the scores different? Can you post them so we can see where the dips are, that is the whole scores for all the individual tests or the compare links?
