Hello all!

Recently upgraded my AMD processor and Gigabyte motherboard. Which recently I scored a 2500 on pcmark. So I decided to upgrade to an I7-3930 and a Asus Rampage 4 motherboard. I also have a ATI HD 7970 graphics card. After installation I am still getting a really low score on pc mark - 3000. My friend did a test who has an i7 3770 and a gtx 580 and an asus p8z77 deluxe, he scores a 6500. Any idea why this could be. Here is a link to my score. Any help would be most appreciated. http://www.3dmark.com/pcm7/535694 Tim

here is my friends benchmark http://www.3dmark.com/pcm7/535646

if you notice under his

Graphics - DirectX 9 iteration 1
115.7 fps
Graphics - DirectX 9 iteration 2
116.73 fps
Graphics - DirectX 9 iteration 3
115.91 fps
and mine says 1 on all 3?

I will probable not be of much help to you as I have no understanding of PcMark 7 set up.Your video card controls may have locked the card to DX 11, so not being benched.
He has 12,288 MB of RAM running higher speed, you have 8,192 MB running slower sped..
His CPU is over-clocked and set up differently.
He has a larger capacity OS drive.
His scores across the board are higher then yours and would add up to quite a lot.

If you can set your CPU to the same as his, it would be a better apples to apples comparison.
