Ignore the final '3DMark' score, and instead look at the details to see what the average framerates for the game scenes is. Those will tell you more about your card's performance than the score ever could. (For instance, getting 40+ fps for the 9700Pro vs. the FX's ~15 at the moment would tell me that for what that particular scene is testing, the FX is especially weak. The weighting of the scores to determine the final 3DMark combined score can hide things like that.)
Yes, but when im getting 2.6fps on GT2+3 Im screwed whichever way you look at it, and getting my new cpu soon isnt really going to help
