So, my computer is not too old, bought it in may. The main problem is that it's giving me kinda poor performance. I ran 3dmark vantage, and got a dazzling 5099 3dmarks. That sucks.
my cpu (Intel core 2 duo E6550 2.3 GHZ), it's not that good, and I haven't overclocked it yet, because I have had some heat problems. CPU score is 4009. GPU score is 5606.

so I'm wondering, what could be the cause of this? I should be able to get a better score, shouldn't I?

My current rig:
Geforce 9800GTX 512MB
Intel core 2 duo E6550 2.3 ghz
2gig ram (two sticks)
550W corsair PSU. (Is this too low? should I get a new one?)
Creative SB-XFI gaming

I'm running vista Home premium, regretting getting Vista so much. It eats all my ram, and is max unstable with my graphic card drivers.

Any help will result in cookies.

I have a 8800gts with e6750 processor. Processor is clocked at 3.2ghz and video card is clocked at 700/1800/100. This is all a mild overclock. I am running 3dmark score of about 12000 on everything. I would say you are pretty close to where you should be. Post at overclock.net. Them guys will be able to give you more insight.
