I know CPU may be a bottleneck.


I wonder how Windows 7 increases Score and Max.power ?
If CPU is a bottleneck, Bench. Score must goes down on Windows 7.

Windows 7 is a better gaming os... no surprises really..

CPU must be upgraded to feel the worth of that card ;) 


Really ?
I thought newer OS put pretty much load on my CPU.

Soon, I buy CPU and M/B.
