For some reason and i suspect my Graphics card but i get some low 3DMark Scores with the current setup i have:

E6600 @3.2 Gigz on Air
BFG 7950GT
2 Gigs Corsair XMS 6400
Asus P5B Deluxe
2 Seagate 320 Gig HDD's in Raid 0
Windows XP Pro 32Bit

Should i be getting a higher score than between 6600 and 6900?

If So What is my Bottleneck?

At 2ghz or above with 2+ cores, the bottleneck of a gaming pc is usually the GPU. That is a last gen card. I'd upgrade that if I game on the pc. Wait for HD3870X2 & or 9800GX2 in Feb.

What drivers are you running, and have your benchmarks decreased over time?
