3dmark11 score before/after update + question

Hi, I have just ordered a new card for my desktop a EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti FTW+ 3GB w/Backplate.

Did I make the best buy for my buck, I am not sure but I am not here for that. I just made a p2861 & x886 with my current setup on 3dmark11. I updated my rig a few months back and did not upgrade the graphic card, but decided it was the time. I will come back to this post after I install my new card, next week I guess, and would like remark on how to optimize my rig if the score are not on par. (Doing this now because when I receive my new card I will likely not find the time to do this right now).

Current rig:
MSI Z77a-GD65
Intel Core i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz
Kingston HyperX 2x 8GB DDR3 - 1600
Sapphire radeon HD 5770
Mushkin Chronos 120GB sata3 SSD
Thermaltake TR2 RX 750Watts
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

What is the best process to update from a radeon to a nvidia card? (would prefer not to format the SDD)

Got my card today :) 

Removed my old driver, ran ccleaner, installed my new card, installed new driver 314.07.

3Dmark11 with my ATI 5770: p2861 & X886
3Dmark11 with my GTX 660ti: p8557 & X2912

What do you guys think? Stuff I should tweak?

well you cant really "tweak", only thing you can really do to boost ur score is by overclocking
