Benchmark performance

So this being my first Mac experience, I'm not sure what to expect. I ran XBench and was a little disappointed with the results...not sure what I expected. Based on this what am I missing? Is there a tweak that would fix some of this?

 

I have a P4 2.4Ghz, with a ATI Radeon 9800Pro, 512MB RDRAM,

 

The only tweaks I've done are the ATI resolution Callisto Drivers with the Callisto QE/CI hacks.

 

Any thoughts? Is this pretty good and I should move on to other things, or is there more that I should be working on to improve performance?

 

thanks

Is there another bench that Might be better? The point of the post is to try to figure out if there is anything that I need to fix on my system. I'm not sure how fast it should be. It feels like IO is slow, but I can't tell what to compare it to.

 

Thanks

Your system is not exactly state of the art. Does it feel sluggish? I think your scores are about right from what I've seen. Try running it without the disk test and see what you get.

how do i enable quartz 2D? I spent a while getting QE/CI running, but i have no idea how to tweak the video...and what about that beamsync thing? where is that? also, I've seen people talking about better io performance with some hack to the ATA driver...I'm running an Intel ATA chip, so I'm not sure if it's there or not.
