Performance issue with GeForce GT 520?

Hello all,

I'm hoping to get some sort of answer to the issues I'm currently facing with my new graphics card. Basically I previously had installed an AMD HD 4850, now the strange thing is... before I replaced it with my new GT 520, my Windows experience index rating for Graphics (Desktop performance for windows Aero) was roughly above 6.

After uninstalling all my ATI drivers and replacing it with the GeForce, I installed the latest drivers and ran the rating again, and my graphics rating dropped to 4.2..... nothing else dropped it was just the graphics. But correct me if i'm wrong, shouldnt the GT 520 be way better than an old AMD 4850?

What's also bizarre is that when i run certain games and they give me the option to optimize graphics based on whatever card you have installed. It sets the graphics as high which the AMD did not, and when i actually go into the game its just pure glitch fest, like its running at 5 FPS which even the AMD did not do at high settings.

Can anyone suggest what the problem may be? Links below to specs of both graphics cards.
