    I tried it once with the video card off, and then with it on. The system performed a bit faster with the video card off. How is that possible when it is supposed to be higher performance with it on? I have the new 2.8 core 2 duo/4GB RAM/512MB GT-9600. Is there something wrong with the video card perhaps?

    Geekbench only does CPU and memory tests. It might have something to do with the memory addressing when on the IGP.

    I think that whether anyone was serious or not, you pretentious ladies are erroneous and the video card should provide a higher score when turned on.

    If you want a GPU test run the Cinebench one then.:

    What if the extra heat from the 9600 caused the cpu to throttle.

    The 9400 wouldn't create as much heat, so the cpu ran full speed.

    Just a thought :confused:
