I'm running a similar system, and would likely get a similar score.
However, I put in an old 8800gts in there for physX support.

Do you have an older physX card laying around? It's pretty awesome if you do.

I'm pretty sure the "P" at the front of the score means it's Performance. I only have the basic version of vantage, so I can't change that setting.

Oh yes,sorry i did not see that p at the begining and you are right it does stand for Performance,then thats not a bad score at all,i think i got half that score,maybe a little less with two 4870 in CF,a AMD Phenom 9950x4 @3Ghz,

I'm running CF 5870 with my physX card (8800gts) in a 3rd PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (runs at x4 mode). I don't think physX is supported in a standard PCI slot, if that's what you mean.

Ok my board run in 16x8x8 or 16x16x1 mode. I have the 5870 in first 2 slots. Would I benefit from getting a cheap nvidia card for physyx in the 3rd slot?

It's probably not worth it. Very few games use physX. But if you were to add a dedicated physX card, 16x8x8 would be best. A 5870 would not be hampered by x8 bandwidth.
