    I recently got a new video card and replaced my old radeon 4890 with a geforce gtx 560. With the old setup, I was also running a geforce 8800 gts in a hybrid physx layout. I decided to keep the 8800 gts and have it handle physx for this config as well. When I got the new card in the first thing I noticed was that the windows experience index ratings, after being refreshed, were exactly the same (7.5 for gaming and desktop graphics).

    I ran some benchmark tests with batman: arkham asylum and GTA 4 and got similar numbers to the old card. I then looked at GPU-Z and noticed that the pixel fillrate was showing up much lower than other 560s. Other reference cards do about 26 GPixels, mine does 11. I am on PCI-E 1.1, not 2.0, but I was under the impression that would not be a limiting factor for this card.
    Does anyone have any thoughts/advice on this?

    Removed the 8800 and tested again. Fillrate still shows up the same in GPU-Z, benchmark results in games are similar.
