The 3DMark overall score of the ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR with the Athlon64 4000+ CPU is actually quite good. It's able to beat out the Epox 9NDA3+ in this portion of the benchmark. The CPU score is a bit low though.

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

AquaMark3 is a powerful tool to determine reliable information about the gaming performance of computer systems. Because the benchmark extensively utilizes DirectX9, DirectX8 and DirectX7 functionality, it represents the requirements of typical gaming applications in 2003 and 2004.

It seems AquaMark3 is a bit harsher on the ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR. It does not perform so well here when compared to the other boards. overall though, the scores are still decent, especially considering the price of the motherboard.
