What boost speed does the card run at? Without knowing that, it's really hard to know if your performance is lacking. Factory overclocked cards are normally not 20% faster than base cards, so I doubt your seeing that much performance delta just from your card. Those FTW scores are probably on manually overclocked cards.

Just returned the Zotac and got the Gigabyte Windforce. Got 53.1 fps maxed out Heaven 3.0. Card OC'd to 150+ gpu clock & 600+ Mem clock...

Now I'm happy!
