I feel like my PC isn't reaching its full potential because when I do the Hitman Absolution benchmark I only get an average of 39 fps when others with the same graphics card are getting 60 fps and up, in game though most of the time I'm getting 60 FPS, even higher when I turn off V-Sync, So why is the benchmark scoring so low? I tried checking if the CPU was bottlenecking but it seemed fine the only thing I found strange is that my GPU isn't reaching 100% load during benchmarks but during most games it is. Is something wrong with my PC or is it running normally?

if you are getting fine FPS when playing games and if it is getting 100% load in game then it could be something wrong with the benchmark you are using, try downloading a different stress tester and see if it works better.
Yeah I have all the latest drivers and I also tried the 3DMark 11 demo and scored 8345 while other people are getting 9844, I mean in game the graphics seem fine but when it gets graphically intense, it tends to stutter for like a micro-second
Turn them both and see what happens; then bring them up one at a time and check your results
With both turned off: 39.8 FPS Average
With FXAA on & MSAA off: 39.8 FPS Average
With both turned on (MSAA x 4) : 39.7 Average
Both on (MSAA x 8):35.4 FPS Average
With FXAA off & MSAA x4: 39.6 FPS Average
how can you do what?............. looks like the processor is giving all she's got. you changed settings on the card and not much of anything happened. overclock the processor a little. see what happens. change the multiplier by 1.
mine is the same i have amd 1100t small over clock to 3.6 with 8gb vengence ram and a msi 7970 3gb ghz edition i get 35fps in hitman all maxed out i read in an other fourm it could be a psu problem on 3d mark basic 720p i just got p7960.
