Hello, i just wanted to know if my scores on the 3dmark11 benchmark are good for the system i have. I had fraps usually around high 40's. I thought that with this card i would have constant 60. Its my first build so i dont know much about tweaking the card. I have not overclocked anything.

The ASUS drivers are outdated. Always download the drivers from the Nvidia site. Also, I think you're overthinking this, haha, no offense. You should see some higher performance with the latest drivers, however.
Ur right I probably am over thinking this but its cuz its my first build and Eventhoueverything working right now I have read a lot of reviews saying that especially this card usually crashes when put under stress. Do u think that 3dmark11 stresses the card enough to be sure it won't crash in future games. Right now the only game I have to test it with is Starcraft 2 and the witcher.
1. Download latest beta drivers from link above.
2. Use Furmark to stress test. It is very intensive, and the equivalent of Prim95 for GPU's. http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/ It's free.
3. Download, install, and keep on eye on the temperatures. If it passes at least 30min. of Furmark without crashing/artifacts, you will be good to go!
