What's a good Putnam score?

What's the least score on the Putnam that would still look good on an application to a top graduate school (say, top 10)?

I took it for the first time today and didn't do as well as I expected. I'm predicting I got a score between 30 and 40. Of course, this is a very respectable score, but is it any good for a top graduate school?

Also, if the answer to the last question is "no," feel free to say so! Please don't sugercoat your answer. I still have at least two more opportunities to take it (and maybe three depending on when I graduate).
