    Already ran it, scored just over 41k but as my drivers are not valid the result is not valid.

    Also it only uses my 2 GPU's to 60% and 40% on the final test which is dropping the score.

    they said theres a driver issue - is your cpu at 100% for final test though?

    Not checked that to be honest but I am happy with the 41K, only ran it to see what it was like not really to interested in trying for top scores.

    Maybe if I had enough cash lying around to go and buy new cards and cpu's then I would push my hardware abit more or mess with the bios on the cards.

    I stopped using Futuremark as IMO it's become pointless. Since they started adding in things like PhysX the resultsare skewed heavily towards certain manufactures. It's also easy to fudge your scores.

    9496, I thought my system would do better as it can play most newer games with decent settings but I guess my system is low-mid range these days :(
