EDIT - 3dmark11
3d06 is all cpu, going from a 2900xt to a gtx470 I gained 500pts, both on the same cpu. Then changing cpu's from a q6700 at 3.6GHZ for both test runs to my i7 at 3.6GHZ I gained 5000pts on the same 470. further clocking the cpu to 4.2 I gained an additional 4k pts.
take off any gpu overclock and focus on maximizing cpu clock. 3d06 is a great cpu bench these days, but a poor gpu one.
