New system - bad 3DMark Vantage score on CPU Test?

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!

  1. 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.
  2. That score looks fine. I wouldn't worry.
