Also in 3D Mark 05 I only scored 325 points. I was only getting less than 1fps in all the tests.
Games seem to be running fine though.
Any ideas what could be wrong with my card?
The fact that your ambient temp is at 52C, indicates that either, the inside of your case is too hot, or, the heatsink on your card is not making good contact with the GPU chip. Or maybe just the heatsinks fan is not running. ?
