Something screwy is going on... or else your CPU is bottlenecking the GTX.

More than likely it's your CPU. Try higher resolution, you may get better scores... I mean see bigger difference.

Load up a game your previously benchmarked. Then compare it to your old video card. I am willing to bet you will see a nice increase.

In 3d mark 06 with one 8800 gt I got around 12000 points, with sli I got around 1000 points more. Why? Because it runs at a low resolution and is CPU bound. I could add in 3 ultras and my score still wouldn't go up much. Now if I enabled 16xAA and 16xAF and raised the resolution to the highest, well I would notice a large difference between scores.

+1

See my sig. Big res jump and small points loss means it's CPU limited at lower res's.

Definately your CPU holding you back. You'll need a higher resolution to take advantage of the video card.

It will make a big difference when you start playing at high resolution or start useing high FSAA.
