I just upgrade to 470 GTX PNY XLR8 and my benchmark scores are low in comparison to same system with several different apps/benchmarks. I have a stock clocked i7 860 and 8gb 1333 ddr3 so I can figure out why I can get decent scores using 260.99 driver. Could my card be faulty or do I have a bottleneck? Any way I can really get a good comparison to similar setup would be great. Could I be missing a setting because I have used ATI/AMD since I started gaming so I am unfamiliar with a couple settings. I might put this back in the box and cough up another 20 dollars for a 6870!

3DMark 06 isn't the best way to judge your performance.Try some games and compare your FPS with benchmarks from other websites.
My rig(i7 860/HD 5970) also didn't score very well in 3DMark,but my FPS in fine in games.
Hey thanks for info! I feel better about performance , and I noticed DX11 games/benchmarks run great with this setup but DX10 and 9 not as good. I guess the drivers have something to do with that ,optimized for newer games! Thanks for info/help!
