Default GPU Upgrade Issue

Recently I changed my GT220 graphics card out and put in a BFG 9600GT card so that I would have the dual link DVI connections. Before the change my system was putting out numbers in the 8000-9000 range on 3DMark06 after I switched to the new card and added the second monitor I can only score about 6500 on the same test. I checked both cards out on before I switched and it seemed like all of the performance specs were better with the 9600GT. Why is it that I cant even get close to my old numbers. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Yes as soon as I put the card in I went to nvidia's website and downloaded the drivers and installed them. Is there anything special I need to do since this is the OC version of this card?
