Your getting WAY better numbers then I was with my setup, and I had both video cards overclocked till just before the started to artifact... Im really wondering now how messed up that motherboard was....

Oh wait a minute, your running windows xp? so your running crysis warhead on dx9? That puts those numbers quite a bit closer to what I was seeing, although CPU was sitting at 3.8ghz with a little more push there I might have gotten closer to 19000 06 marks.

Yes I didn't touch the OC on the GPU's at all.....I'm sure if I twigged em up I'd crack the 20K....

In all honesty I'm extremely impressed with the speed of these Cards in SLI.....

Yeah for the price their hovering at right now they offer up an amazing amount of performance, Im almost regretting dropping them for dual GTX 260s... almost :p You should pop precision up and feed those cards a little speed, I know they can go upwards of 800mhz core and 2400mhz on the ram ;) and its makes a pretty good amount of difference in 3dmark scores.

I may try it at a later date....for now I'm happy...and it is my wifes "Office Rig" :) However, if I get a "prospective" local buyer I wil very likely be selling it....to build a "real" Office Rig for my wife(something a little more user defined) ;)
