Re: Graphics Card Not At Full Capacity!
300 points isn't that much actually, you can get that difference through drivers alone.
Most people shut down all unnecessary background programmes, set display properties to performance (nvidia control panel) and oc the crap out of their cards for a maximum score. Even if they don't oc they usually still do the background programmes/performance thing.
@OP: Which drivers were used in both yours and the Regular XFX 8600 GTS XXX tests?? Also, which operating system in both cases?
