Yeah my 380 got some really crappy 3DMark06 scores because of the nVidia Quadro video card. If I swap the 7800GTX TOP from the DC76000 with the Quadro in the Precision 380 they may go up drastically.

SM 2.0: 133
3DMark: 290
CPU: 1490

As I said not very good scores. I'll do another benchmark when I swap the video cards.

I swapped the nVidia Quadro from the Precision 380 and put it in my HP DC7600. I ran 3Dmark06 with the 7800GTX in the Precision.

3DMark
    From: 290
    To: 4202
SM2.0
    From: 133
    To: 1738
HDR/SM3.0
    From: N/A
    To: 1705
CPU
    From: 1490
    To: 1489


CPU basically stayed the same, but the other scores SHOT up. Not the best benchmark by far, its more so for the video card.

Dell's are mostly all my company has been buying for the last two and a half years. In fact our server is also a Dell Server Class machine and it's a tank. I have yet to have one of them have a problem that wasn't caused by a user. (not a single hardware failure yet). For that matter I have such a high degree of confidence in them, I don't even buy the extra waranties.


but how long have you used these computers. Dells Suck A$$ for the long term. i have used P2 computers from hp, IBM, E-Machines and many others. but ive attempted to use computers of a higher grade from Dell and the HardDisk and/or Bios are currupt. well thats what i have to say about Dell. the other thing i have against Dell is that they use Intel chips :hmm:


Like I said about two and a half years. I have yet to have a hardware failure on any of them except for one computer that had a hardrive failure prior to my arrival. And oddly it was a Maxtor. Seems to be the general consensus that there was a bad lot of Maxtor drives.

seems that way. also most of the systems people bring to me are p2-early p4 machines so that could have something to do with it. either way id rather build my system than let some random freak i dont know do it for me. and that "dude your getting a dell" killed it for me from the begining :mrgreen:
