I assume you are referring to the difference between 4.00 and 3.25??

That's normal. Windows 32-bit can only see about 3.25. If you want to use more, you have to go to 64-bit.

Sorry, didn't catch that.

I have seen a post or 2 here recently with a similar complaint, but don't know if it was ever resolved or explained.

hmm really? i mean... it used to be fine i believe... i don't recall ever noticing this.

on a side note, i am going to get a new graphics card for christmas. what should i upgrade too in the 125 dollar and less range?

i wanna bump up my WEI score from 5.9 to around 7.0 if that gives any clues!

Thanks.

As far as I know, the WEI defaults to the lowest of the component scores.

I haven't heard of anyone getting above 5.9 I think with a traditional hard drive. So if you don't have an SSD, that might hold back your WEI, regardless of how fancy the video card was.
