Windows 7: Low score based on graphics performance

Low score based on graphics performance

Hi everyone,
W7 has rated my PC base score as 1, but my CPU & memory at 6.6, HD at 5.9

Is this greatly affecting my overall PC performance?

I mostly use my Pc for Photoshop, internet surfing and as a media centre. I don’t play any games on it. My Pc performs ok, but I am wondering if my graphic card performance is causing the screen freezing mostly when using Photoshop or media player.

I really like the power consumption on these cards only 10watts.

What do people think?

Hi. I think you should install the video card driver from here and then enjoy.

Thanks for replying. I have the latest driver. I think matrox cards are useless when it comes to 3D. I hardly do 3D work.

What about in the device manager? Which date and version of driver does it show?

I really think that Microsoft's specs are way off. You need at the very least a mid-range video card, but a high-end card will increase your rating,

We had a poll at windows7forums and the video card most always had the lowest score
