I would just like to see others opinions about my 3dmark score and see if I should be able to get it higher....or if it is pretty good for my system.

here is a link to the score: http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=14539206

if you upgrade that gtx 260 you should get a substantially better score i think that's the only thing holding you back but really its a great score for the stuff you got or maybe get 2 gtx 260's your motherboard can support it and psu

Super score in 3DMark06 graphics work better with one single chip, while in 3DMark ventage work better with two graphics chips. my suggestion is to buy if you can find somewhere cheap Nvidia 295, because it breaks the way it works.

Yes but I think you will not have such a good score with a 295 graphics. Try to sell and somehow find a cheap 295, if you can not possibly go on a 5850 or 5870 that are very similar in performance in games like 295, and preferably in 3dmak06 ventage but 295 is better.

But in the end I would not have changed anything, and added at least not for now have a great processor, and card, with which you can play any game lightly. So that nothing can modify at least some time will you be quiet. I say I have 920 on 4ghz and 4850 and all the games I do just fine on 22-inch monitor, although I need to change soon for something more serious, since I had a 260 that I may take it or take 4870.4890 ...
