What you're seeing is this. Regularly 6850s score around 7k graphics score @ stock. The Physics score is pretty good for a triple core Athlon II at 2.8k. With that said, a CPU that gets 2.8k physics score is not sufficient to bring those cards to the 7k graphics score limit. The CPU is not feeding your GPUs with enough data (if you download MSI Afterburner or some other monitoring program you'll likely see low GPU usage ~70%). If you OC those 6850s to around 1GHz core they should be able to get close to or just past 9k with a good CPU. But for now this is the max that you'll get out of them with that Athlon II.
So in short.
- CPU limiting GPUs = sub 7k GPU score (your system still scores decent in this point)
- CPU is subpar vs most CPUs (2.8k CPU score pulls the overall score down)
- Combined test also suffers from the poor CPU lowering your score even more.
You should upgrade your CPU (preferably Ivy Bridge when it comes out or an Intel i5 2500K/2550K to make those cards fly wink.gif)

oh wow thumb.gif well my budget doesnt get there man... what i could get is a FX-4100 and overclock it. i have seen bench and that CPU for the price does wonders

I think that he would get 7k+ easily out of those cards with a good Core i5/i7. I get somewhat more than 12k out of my GTX 470s and 6850s are only ~15% weaker.

EDIT:

@EliteReplay

In that case you should just disregard 3dmark. I think you know now why the you get this score, but if you're happy with the performance in games then you shouldn't change it wink.gif

well actually a get most of the games at 50-60 fps... but knowing that i can get better result is just u know haha

Try making a run of 3dmark with MSI afterburner on the background, see if the cards are reaching 100% usage while benching. Also, close any programs that may be using the CPU and is not needed for the bench (web browser, steam, skype, etc..).

i tried to do that, but i cant see the MSI afterburner asap 3dmark start running... something to note is that, while playing battlefield
my card are just 80% used, i just did a test unlocking the 4th core (im not going to keep that CPU like that getting very high temps) and i was using between 90-100%, with that being said, i think with the FX4100
i should be abel to push those cards to the limit thumb.gif

yah your getting a huge cpu bottleneck....i had a phenom II 1090t and i could not play BF3 with my slie'd 460s cause of the bottle neck, i just got rid of that and got a 2500k set up and have a conservative clock of 4.6ghz and man....i can not believe the performance gains i got...my 3d mark scores never suffered like yours did though even with the 1090t or even my older 9950BE...but your mb is also holding those cards back as well, they would be just fine on a board that goes to 8x8 but if one of your slots is only a x4 slot then your losing a lot there as well. also, im guessing your 8gb of mem are either 2x4gb sticks or 4x2gb sticks but in case they are not, you have to be running dual channel mem or else that's a huge system bottle neck as well.
oh...my 460s get a score of 8600+-p

and using afterburner you dont need to see things as they happen, after 3dmark closes just pull up after burner and look on the graph and youll see your gpu% usage during each test and see how high they get. should be 95%+

nononononono just stay away from AMD!!!! i used their stuff for almost 10 yrs...but now, they suck...save up if you have to and buy a i-5 2500k or 2550k and nice board, problem solved! even better try and wait till ivy bridge comes out and get one of those or, pick up a 2500k for cheaper when everyone sells theirs to get an ivy bridge (i may be one)
