There is 1 important thing I would like to know regarding the benchmarks.

When you run the 3D tests did you disable compiz?

I ask because on my machine it reduces in game FPS by about 30-40%

Also, seeing as in past tests Arch linux was about 10-20% faster in some of your bechmarks would that not have equalled Windows 7 in some of the tests ?

I did post this in the thread but had no direct response.
