Hi, Ive just run a 3dmark06 benchmark on my system and got a score of 14059 everything at stock settings. The question i have is is does this sound about correct for the spec of my system or should it be higher?

Windows Vista 32bit
Athlon x4 Phenom 9950 Black Edition 2.6ghz (stock cooler)
Msi k9A2 Platinum M/board.
4gb Ocz Reaper 1066 ram (bios reads 800)
2 Saphire HD4870 512mb Graphics running crossfire.

I really don't think you are using the 4870s to their full potential. I have the e8400 running at 3.6Ghz (3.0 stock) and 4850s in crossfire and am getting around 17,500. I think you should get an aftermarket cooler and try overclocking your CPU a bit to give your 4870s some more breathing room.
