Windows 7: GTS450 Performance Issue - Underperforming

GTS450 Performance Issue - Underperforming


I was running a few benchmarks with 3dmark vantage after OCing my fairly old GTS450.
After noticing my 3dmark gpu score was low I put my clock back to stock.

My GPU Score (stock) is P2508 but the target score is P8100, as you can see for some reason it's underperforming. Any idea's anyone?

It's weird as I just put it into a newly build system.. i5-2500k and all..

Thanks in advance.
