Windows 7: Questions about the Windows Experience Index and its scoring

Questions about the Windows Experience Index and its scoring

I'd like to know is the Windows Experience Index a reliable source to find out how capable my hardware is? I've been told that it is from one person but another says that WEI is unreliable. Also I'd like to know the subscores I got for Graphics (Windows Aero) and Gaming Graphics is 6.3 are those good scores? I'm looking at doing some light gaming on my laptop since the GPU I have is the Intel HD Graphics 3000 integrated graphics and I wasn't sure if I can use the WEI scores to judge just how capable the Intel graphics card is. I've never really given the WEI much thought until now that I'm trying to see what my laptop can and can't do so any replies will be appreciated

Hello TheUltimate7 and welcome to Seven Forums.

This Microsoft article may provide some more understanding of the WEI.

What is the Windows Experience Index?

Others may strongly disagree with me, but I think the WEI should not be taken as the definitive measure of how good a computer is or how good it will perform under real world situations. It's a guideline and nothing more. Kinda like the government's estimated gas mileage for vehicles. Real world driving doesn't always match driving on a test track under controlled conditions.
