3D Mark has nothing to do with FS. How is FS running? Frankly speaking, I have no confidence in 3D mark, other than it's ability to benchmark *itself* based on the drivers that you have. Someone else may be able to give the pro, or con, reasons for that.Personally, when I was going through the testing of different drivers with that thing, before I gave up on it, I'd get lower scores with it, but higher FPS, and video quality, with certain games. For example, whichever one of the 3D Mark programs that had a Max Payne demo in it was disappointingly choppy and slow, yet the game played perfectly on my machine. I almost didn't buy the game, but took a chance on it, and I'm glad that I did.Others will have different opinions, I am sure.
