So I got a 8800GT awhile ago. I have mixed feelings on it right now, it runs some games better and some games not nearly aswell as I thought it would (Oblivion mostly). So someone suggested I do a 3dmark06 test and my score was 9420.
1280x1024. I haven't played any graphic hogs like Crysis yet that has higher res options.
Tbh, if nothing is overclocked, that score is very accurate. Look around for more scores with your specs w/o cpu overclocking. You'l find they are very simular.
Yeah what blacken said. If that cpu isn't overclocked, it's probably bottlenecking the vidcard.
that score is about on par for what your systems is...yes your getting a bit of bottle neck but when the 8800gtx's came out even the best cpu bottle necked them a year ago and the gt scores very similarly so i wouldn't worry to much.
Its bottlenecking but it'll be small on most real games, so dw about it.
