Just bought an EVGA GTX 560 Ti 448 Core Classified. I liked it because it boasts the GF110. I ran the free benchmark and got a 5566 GPU score. The list shows it should get 5730. Neither my CPU nor the GPU is overclocked. Is this an accurate stock score for this model? Would the PSU have anything to do with it (I'm using adapters for both power plugs for the video card and its the stock 500W, but I've disconnected the DVD drive for more overhead; calculators all say I should be fine for wattage, but maybe I have no idea what I'm doing)?

If anyone else has a similar setup with this same model, I would love to hear what your results are. Or if anyone knows of some things I should try to boost performance without overclocking that would be awesome.
