Explain what you mean by "underpowered".

Also, let me be clear, the GeForce 9500GT card was a generic, fanless, NVidia card with 512mb of DDR2 memory. The card's price was $60. I didn't want to spend hundreds on a video card since I'm not into high power graphics. I just think that even for what I bought, it should still be better than 4.3.

Note: everything works fine, and I'm happy with the performance. Also, I don't game on this machine. I just feel the graphics number is too low. All latest drivers installed. Anyone know of any tweaks?

it may be simply the fact that you are running an i5. from the specs i have seen for the new i5 / i7 versus the original i7's is that the new ones are basically an i7 verson of a celeron. they are the original i7's dumbed down. i am pretty sure that this is going to effect your scores across the board. i am running an asus version of your vid card and on a e8400 system and i got 6.5 for graphics and 6.5 gaming graphics. one question though, did you add your own fan to the card or are you running it without a fan? these cards must have their own cooling.

The new core i7s (socket LGA 1156) are just as good as the original core i7s (socket LGA 1366) in many applications. If you compare the core i7 860 to the core i7 920, which are the same price, you will find that the 860 is faster most of the time. It has 4 cores 8 threads, a higher clock speed, and turbo boost just like the core i7 920 but it lacks a single memory channel (which doesn't make much of a difference for a majority of applications). The one thing that makes the core i7 860 more ideal than core i7 920 is the lower idle/load power consumption by system-level integration from the chipset and socket.

Core i5 750 is basically a core i7 860 without hyperthreading and a lower clock speed. You will get 4 cores and 4 hardware threads with this processor. Right now, I'd say the core i5 750 is the best choice for performance/watt and performance/$.

the specs for the new line i have seen make them look like celerons. as for the vid card the only time you buy a card with out cooling is if you plan on doing liquid cooling. maybe it is just the i5's that seem like a celeron, but the reviews i have seen lump both together. i'll take a look at independant reviews for each sometime in the next couple of days.
