I have

Intel Core2 Quad Q8300 2.50GHz
4 gigs ddr3 ram
Nvidia Gforce 9600 GS (I think this is the problem)
Realtek on-board sound
Windows vista ultimate 64bit

I only score around 1400 on the low benchmark Please help.



EDIT: I have a gforce 8800 gts i could swap in if need be but I don't want to do it If that wont be sufficient because it does not have an hdmi port which means i cant use my current monitor but i can work around that if need be but of the 8800 wont cut it then there is no point in even trying

Yeah definitely look into upgrading your GPU.... Hahaha. Get something better along the lines of a Radeon HD 5770 (I'm not too up to speed in my latest Nvidia cards) and you should get into the 3000s.

If that doesn't do enough for you, you may want to look into upgrading your CPU but I'm pretty sure you should be okay.

My set up is similar, I have a Q9300 and dual GTX 260s, with SLI enabled I get easily 4000 on low. I've been wondering what a Fermi card would do instead of my dual 260's...or possibly two Fermi cards >.>
