Upgraded graphics from 8800 GT to Radeon 5770

I upgraded my video card from the old GeForce 8800 GT, 512 MB, to the ATI Radeon 5770, 1 GB.

Here's a snapshot the Windows Experience Index:

Which I got to thinking.. is there a system out there that reports 7.9 in all categories?

Don't worry : you only have a mid-range card. I don't know for sure, but I think a system with maybe an overclocked core i9 (coming soon) with a HD 5990 (coming soon) would be 7.9.
And that would be expensive (!)

ATI Radeon? HD 5770 GPU Feature Summary
GDDR5 is for graphics cards (wonder if 'G' stands for graphics ). DDR just by itself is usually RAM.
