make sure you have up to date GART drivers for the chipset on your motherboard. Ati just came out with a new driver 5.4 .

Yea, that seems really low...
List your system spec's...
CPU=Pentium or AMD
Which ATI video card...
Is the vid card overclocked at all?
Did you buy or build your pc?
Do you have the latest vid card drivers?
Before you run the test...Run Ad-Aware to get rid of any spyware..This is a GREAT program, and it's free..I use it a couple times a week to get rid of all that internet leftover crap...

After that, defrag your hard drive...
Reboot your pc...
Then close any programs that are running in the background..
Then run test, and when you do, let the benchmark run till the end..

Hate to bore you with details, but there is a buttload of stuff going on in these tests...Textures, lighting, graphic detail, bump mapping, etc...
Here's some info from thier site...
3DMark05 Game Tests

* Game Test 1: Return to Proxycon
The numerous lights in the ceiling of the hangar are approximated with a directional light from above. This is generating dynamic shadows using a 2048x2048 resolution depth map. Additionally here are a number of point lights filling the total lighting nicely, but these mostly don't add shadows to save some system load. The corridor has point lights throwing shadows, using a 512x512x6 cube depth map each, and some are masked and animated as the turning warning light at the end of the corridor. There are all in all 8 light sources in the game test level, two directional and the rest point lights.

* Game Test 2 - Firefly Forest
This scene is a nice example of a smaller scale outdoor scene with rich vegetation. Immediate visibility is not so far, and there is a skybox surrounding the whole scene. There are a large number of trees, all swaying in the light breeze, the branches swinging separately, and there is dense vegetation on the ground. The vegetation on the ground is actually one of the key interests in this test. It is dynamically distributed where needed, according to the camera movements. Its level of detail is also dynamically altered depending on the distance to the camera. The other key interest in this scene is the amazing lighting and dynamic shadow system. This scene really is ideal for showing the benefits of perspective shadow maps.

* Game Test 3 - Canyon Flight
This test gives an example of a large scale outdoor scene. The scene is fairly complex with large areas of water reflecting the high canyon walls. The water actually is one of the key points of interest in this scene. The water not only does realistic looking reflections and refractions, it has a depth fog, making the sea monster swimming under the airship actually look deep down in the water. The air in this scene also uses a volumetric fog, making distant cliffs of the canyon really look far away.

You can disable the CPU tests to get a faster GPU Test result
