Hey,
Windows experince index isn't something to take seriously lol, try benching the card with some 3d marks type software, it isnt really a performance card though to be honest

Are you referring to the WEI....windows experience index (score). If so....don't worry about it...it means nothing to most of us anyway. As long as the hardware is performing like it should, it's fine.

I've replaced an old hard drive with a score of 5.9 to a more modern 1 TB drive and it dropped to a 5.4. My hdd performance is very good....I have no lags, delays and it seems to have a bit more pep....granted it's new and the old drive is 5 years old.

How well do i know, if you look i've just installed two "SSD"s and my score is 4.5 over all, I was just wondering why does the Video Card hold it back, this card (while not that good) it does do a good job in Games, or at least that what i have rear and been told.
By the way where do you say thanks on here ??
Thanks ok!

No problem, most people dont listen to that score, but for reference it takes the score of the lowest subset(eg. your graphics card) and i think it only goes up to 7.

I got curious and just checked mine and it is 3.3 on the laptop with on board graphics, just enough to play command and conquer 3 at full res.
