Decent'ish spec but low benchmark?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all... Recently got an AMD FX-8350, Gigabyte HD 7970 Ghz ed, 16gb Kingston Predator HyperX, Khuler 920 etc etc... I thought I would get decent benchmark scores with this setup, but no. I see core I5s with older graphic cards destroying my score! Below are some pics, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I know the 7970 is barely overclockable, but even at stock I believe I should be getting better scores than what I have

nope seems about right for your hardware , And that is pretty good for 1920x1080 , and also do not forget ATI hates AA so that is why it is allot lower

Not sure how theres a huge leap using heaven bench compared to 3d mark, but im not complaining. Also found it very strange when overclocking processor to 4500mhz the fps on benchmarks would drop and result in lower scores doh.gif bottlenecked confused.gif
