File transfer speeds on Win 7 GIGABIT network ?

I get approx 70 MB/sec when transferring files on my windows 7 WORKGROUP network, everything on the network is GIGABIT enabled, (3 PC's, 1 Router, 1 gigabit switch, cat6 cables), so does an average speed of 70 MB/sec sound about right. tia

PC2 Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 4GHz
PC3 Core 2 duo E8400 @ 4GHz

Sounds about right to me for copying one large file say a video several GB in size. My setup was just 2 PCs. An AMD dual core with a gigablit card I added on, and an AMD quad core with built in gigabit wired ethernet. On my setup copying in one direction seemed a bit faster than the other. The fastest seemed to be sending from the quad core to the other machine. But even in the reverse direction I got about 80% of the speed. Seems I recall copying say a 5 GB file from the quad to the dual would start out at over 90 MB/s then taper off to a steady 60 MB/s or so. So I'd say you're in good shape.

thanks for that re-assurance, I've also noticed that effect when copying some files it starts sometimes @ 80 - 100 MB/s then pretty quickly settles down to around 70 MB/s and I'm quite happy with that speed, cheers
