3D mark firestrike score?

Really quick simple question, I ran a 3dmark benchmark, I believe it is wrong.

is the score right or is something wrong somewhere?

i6600k overclocked to 4.6
gtx 960 4gb
16gb 3000mhz ram

No that seems about right, the 960 isn’t a benchmarking card really.
Remember this is a synthetic benchmark so it favours hyper-threading cpu’s and high end gpu’s, for the big scores, and therefore isnt very real world.

Is there better benchmarking tools?

No Futuremark benches are considered to be the best around, there is a section here for you see other benchmarks and post and compare your results, but like I said they are all synthetic. But Valley is probably slightly more realistic for gaming comparisons.
