E8500 and XFX GTX260 Stock overclocked edition
8GB RAM, I havent overclocked anything.

Please take a look at the attached 3mark Vantage score. Notice the CPU Test#2, only 9.10 steps/s!

What could be causing this?

Keep in mind that vantage is way more intense than 06, so a low score isnt that surprising. I would recommend you download 06,and then use the little comparison graph thingy on your online score to see what other people are getting with that hardware.

That score looks fine. I wouldn't worry.
