good drivers... no problem there.... memory is a good manufacturer too...
I would check your PSU.... see if you are going into low power mode on the GFX card.... get rivatuner and force the clocks to the same.... ( can also use to monitor the voltages )
CPU score... do not reallu know about the X2's , but it does seem a little low.... again, maybe a power issue

Cpu score looks good. I'm guessing that you have something forced in the nvidia control panel like AA or AF which is causing you to score lower. Also, is that at the default resolution of 1280 x 1024 or is it running in another resolution?

Shouldn't the HT link be a LOT higher? My work PC is AM2 and shows 1000mhz HT Link.

I think you have the HT link in BIOS set to 1x. Try setting it to something higher like 4x or even Auto.

LOL get into bios and up that to 5x.

Turn off AA, AF, and any other setting and put it as default in the Nvidia control panel. that happened to me too, turns out I had AA and AF on max.
