Well I got the new card installed into a new rig today. It runs nice. Ran 3d06 on it Scored a respectable 11420 for an overall score. The set up for this test was as follows. E8400 @ 3.0, 1 gb of ram (ran a bit short on cash at the store.) basic ecs mobo (will upgrade soon i think.) And the XfX 9600 gt XXX. The sms2.0 score was 5283 the hdr/sms3.0 score was 5002 and the cpu score was 2796 (this part of the score seemed a bit low to me, could it be because of the limited ram at the moment?).

Threw the card into my q6600 rig which at the moment is clocked at 2.8 here is how it did vs the 9800 gtx

9800gtx XXX 9600gt XXX 9600gt XXX in the q6600
sms 2.0 5296 5255 5383
hdr/sms3.0 5821 5038 5002
cpu 4447 4483 2796
overall 13394 12586 11420

I will try and post some pics tonight if I get a chance will also try throwing some of the ram from my q6600 into the e8400 see if that makes a difference on the cpu score. Either way it should be folding by morning. :supz:
