System
965 BE
Gigabyte 790fxta-gd70 MB
Graphics cards are Sapphire 5770's

**** So does the table above seem right. When i added a second card my 3d mark score almost doubles. Great. However, bumping up my prcessor to 3800 has almost no effect on my 3dmark score at all. From what i have read, 3dmark seems to be a good measure for expected graphics performance. So if overclocking to 3800 really doesn't lift the score then why do it? i am just wondering what i am not doing right. Take the first and last for example, only an increase of ~80 marks.

lol dude ati and amd doesnt do too well with 3d mark.... But is ur system 100 percent stable. Instability can cause drops in performance. That seems like a memory bottle neck or something... Whats ur ram set at? Fill out ur system specs in user cp
