Basically I fitted a new graphics card into my lan party going machine and since then I've noticed a steady decline in my benchmark scores. 


Before each test I restarted the machine and waited 2 minutes to allow it to finish booting.


My scores since I purchased the upgrade have been as follows:


On day of purchase: 7100


Test 1: 7060

Test 2: 7053

Test 3: 7048

Test 4: 7035

Test 5: 7029


I'm scared to run any more since I might be killing my graphics card, any ideas on what is happening?
