    If i replaced that card with the "Leadtek nVIDIA GF 6800 GT 256MB GDDR3 256-Bit AGP 8X" would i see a dramatic difference or would i just see a few points of improvement?

    ummm when u say a few points you mean a few thousand

    but another thing is 512 meg ram u need to upgrade that

    why not buy the 6600 gt
    and another gig of ram

    or just buy them both

    because 512 meg ram is really not alot for mark05

    or any new game

    jumping up to dual channel makes a huge difference in 3dmark05, also running PCIeX helps a lot
    [Watercooled]
    AMD Athlon64 3500+ [2.2GHz] @ 2473MHz
    ABIT AN8 with 1024MB DDR400 Dual Channel
    Leadtek PX6600 256MB PCIeX
    160GB SATA + 160GB PATA + 60GB PATA
    CoolerMaster reversed CStacker Case w/AcBel 550W PSU

    You should see at least 4000 points with a 6800.
