3dmark06 isn't so useful unless you use a higher res + AA test. My 4870 gets a similar 3dmark06 score as the old 8800GT, but it's much faster in games...

What he said. Increase the AA/AF and resolution, I bet the score will barely move...

Yeah same here, my old 8800GT was overclocked & i got just over 15000 thats why i was worried, i though i should have been getting a much higher score.

Add AA and resolution. The score will stay nearly the same on your new card, and it will fall through the floor with the 8800's.

OR JUST PLAY GAMES AND ENJOY YOUR CARD.

Not really one for benchmarking anyway, i just like to run a benchmark when i get a new toy just to compare and make sure it running as it should be.

That's pretty decent for a 260, I think my single GTX280 score is around 12K...

For those interested in some comparitive numbers for single, SLI and Tri SLI, here are the tests with my GTX 260 cards at 666/1404/2214. I only reported the graphics scores for the 3DMark06 tests and the Vantage scores.

Yes, I did. I scored about 26,000. For this run I simply pushed up the video card clocks to 700/1509/2000 and kept the CPU at the 24x7 settings. I think I can do a little better, however. Have to determine the card limits, yet.

It does feel weird to play crysis at 1920x1200 with all the settings to very high and get a contant 35fps .I don't have no FSAA applied but with my two 8800GTS 640mb in SLI it was a slide show at 1920x1200 .but this BFG GTX 280 OCX is big and power hungry.

Wait, what? You're playing Crysis V.High at 1920x1200 and you're getting 35FPS constant?
