Windows 7: Help with my 480

I agree with chev65, you may need more GHz on the processsor, could be a bottle neck?? something is amiss though as I get a 7.8 score with my GTX480 and i7-860 with it running @ 3.3GHz. Could be a power supply issue, they need alot, the temps are normal, I get 48c @ idle and around 75c-85c under load. BTW a EVGA highflow bracket has made about a 5c improvement.

His CPU won't be a bottleneck, chev just means to get the most out of it and the best performance it's best to overclock it.

Well she only has my old 19" screen to, what is WEI i'm not the best with computers.
Windows Experience Index (score). You should be getting around a 7.6 with a 480.
I get 7.7 with my GTX 470.

And, yes, those scores seem pretty normal for those settings. I agree on it being an unfair comparison, though.

Well anywhere between 7.6 and 7.8 for them.

I re-ran the windows assessment and it give me 7.1, as for over clocking the processsor i wouldn't know where to start, is that hard to do for someone thats not that good with computers?

Think i will try getting my I5 overclocked, i just can't understand why Windows Experience Index scores my 480 only 7.1 with these resolutions.
Btw will i need a better cooler than the standard intel i5 one that came with the proseser if i find some one to overclock it?
