13k is respectable for a stock 9700pro with your processor... try setting everything to performance settings in the display properties... you may get closer to 14k

Did you do a format, or try and get rid of all the NV files?
Detonator Destroyer?
I do NOT think a format is necessarily needed ( some folks do), but I do think ( from reading MANY posts at forums) that NV files usually cause major problems when running an ATi card....... most of the problems I have seen stem from driver files that are left behind from an uninstall of the NV card.
