i realise the WEI is a bit of a gimmick, but its showing a difference, thats what i was interested in, not absolute numbers, i couldnt care less if i run a 1.0 or a 7.9, its just the change i wanted to know the reasoning for!
and thanks for that answer, i can see thats probably the reasoning, 64-bit requires more oomph, so its showing my graphics as worse on a comparison to higher specs required for 64-bit. the goalposts have moved so to speak and i'm left standing!lol!
thanks for the input guys! any specific GPU testing benchmarks you recommend, free preferably, i'd like to investigate further but am not so interested as to wanting to pay for the privelage :-)
