if you look at the chart you will see the slight differences on programmes. The reason why I changed to the gigabyte was becasue the asus set up was so unstable. everytime I played a game - no matter what set up I tried it crashed. imo total rubbish. changed the mobo and it runs like a dream and a lot lower temps as well.

If you are wondering why certain values are low like 3dmark06, its because of the card - its the 1st generation so its not overclocked in anyway. If I overclock it even slightly, it jumps up to 11,600.

many thanks.
