Default How do you read Vantage scores Properly?

I am looking at the scores around this thread and I cant tell what is up.
I scored 11231 on Vantage default performance benchmark run,
GPU score was :17955
I also ran UNIGINE dx11 demo and got
FPS 90
Score 2277
So I see you guys are comparing a different number or something. I think I am using the wrong number. So can someone please layout how the scoring is measured here?
I really would like to know how I am stacking up to a GTX570 with Like a I5 or I7 CPU.
Please can someone help. Tell me 465 Canadian dollar GPU got me something to sleep about. I know I overpaid by about 40-50 bucks. But this Gigabyte GPU are very hard to find. __________________

There's a letter next to the score that determines the settings you ran the benchmark at. Go to the Futuremark website to compare scores.

I wouldn't try to justify your purchase, you'll only end up disappointing yourself. If it plays the games you want at the settings you want, it's good enough.
