Games are not even Optimized for quad core properly not to mention i7.

infact i7 Performs worse in Crysis than a Core 2 E8400
No, it doesnt, the processors on that test have different clocks

Your score still seems too low, I don't have i7 but I still get P24000 in Vantage with dual core

no not really... enabling physx on nvidia cards gives you 2.5x boost in cpu score yet the overall score only increases by 1000 pts or so

Disable HT for 06 and watch your score jump. CPU score will fall and GFX score should rise.

I moved from 21K to 24K @ 1920x by doing that with Tri-SLi.

What, does it refuse to run them? lol. Games will run fine. It's not the best bang for buck though.

Update, here's another data point using GTX280 + Crysis:
i7 Extreme @ 3.2GHz: 162.7 fps
Core 2 Extreme @ 3.2GHz: 143.0 fps
