I built what should have been a kick-ass system with:

Intel i7-920
6GB RAM
RAID-0 7200RPM drives 
Asus  P6T Motherboard - (Intel on-board RAID)
Radeon HD-4250 VGA
PCBSD 64Bit

But in various benchmarks it comes up short every time.

I just ran this browser test and I scored 1296 pts using FF3.5.2 VS double that running on Windows ??  It's not clear what OS the average results came from, but I presume it was Vista.

My benchmark results breakdown:



	
		Rendering - 1247
		
	

	
		Social networking - 1833
		
		
		
	

	
		Complex graphics - 3134
		
		
		
	

	
		Data - 1714
		
		
		
	

	
		DOM operations - 1264
		
		
		
	

	
		Text parsing - 741
		
		

		
	

I did some other OS benchmarks too recently, and was similarly underwhelmed.  Anyone have a clue why?  Anyone else done any benchmarking?

This machine is sucking up 175 Watts in electricity and I don't appear to be getting my money's worth.  Bumming...
