download GPUz or CPUz and see what graphics they say you are using. Maybe Unigine is fouled up.

If you attached a USB drive formatted in FAT32 and press F12 while in UEFI, it takes a screen shot of what ever screen you're on.

GPUZ displays both graphic cards.

I went to the option in the bios and turned off Virtu (see screenshot).

Now the benchmark displays I'm using a GTX680; however, I am greatly disturbed by how low the scoring is compared to others with similar system specs.

Please help. I'm about to send this graphics card back to newegg as defective (RMA).

I'm no expert when it come to FPS and GPU performance. Have you tried the latest nVIDIA driver?
NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search
Or maybe an older one would work.
Also:
Try these steps to install only the graphics driver.

1.Download the preferred driver and save it to the desktop.
2.Double click the installer and you will see a screen where it will be extracted to, change that to your desktop.
3.Open Device Manager through Control Panel.
4.Expand Display adapters and right click the name for yours and choose Update Driver\Browse my Computer. Select the driver folder you just saved on the desktop. Click Next.
5. Your system should say "Windows has successfully updated your driver software".

If you get a window saying you already have the most current driver, go back to step 4 and choose Uninstall Driver software instead. Then restart from step 3.

I'll ask for some others to help here too.

I notice you are maxing all the settings, that is going to bring your score down drastically in that benchmark as all it does is count the raw number of frames.

Also have you grabbed the latest driver from nvidia?

Yes I have the latest video driver properly installed.
If you refer to my first post there is a screenshot of my benchmark and a similar PC, both using the highest settings. That screenshot was taken off of this forum.

No. Mavrag.
Either way you have to admit these scores are aweful for a 680. Something is wrong.

My 680 should be smoking that 570 in post 14 by at least 10 fps.

As of now, my scores are 20 fps off what they are supposed to be.

Something is DEFINITELY wrong.

I did update my PCI to 3.0 btw.
