CoasterFan you have a real good computer there. dont worry about it. The WEI index is not going to tell you how good yor computer experience "will" be.

and as for the SSD. It is a solid-state drive like flash drives. It has no moving parts. so no RPM's the read/write speeds are very fast as it doesn't need to read/write information from/to a spinning disk. SSD's right now are very expensive and low storage.

The best set up:
2 hard drives: SSD is 60-120G to hold only the OS and Programs. Second HDD would be your 1TB 7200RPM HD to hold all of your data.

Why is the Primary Hard Disk so slow? I have a 1 TB 7200RPM Hard Drive..... Wouldn't it get rated better?
How old is the computer, have you used lots of space up and have you defragged on reg. basis?

Edit: Oh well, I was hoping you could increase it by cleaning up stuff or defragging, but I guess the WEI is its own level. The outside of the disc is moving faster due to the diamater, a 3.5 is faster than a 2.5 disk. (they have the same RPM) so a defrag could help. Oh well.

Hi there. I just got the computer actually. It's a XPS 9000 with the Intel Core i7 920 2.6GHZ Processor, 6GB Memory, 1TB HD, ATI Radeon 5870 1GB Video.... It's pretty darn good though.

My question is, if I order a SSD drive, (is that 10000 ot 15000 RPMS?), that will make it that much faster, or is it not worth it??
There's no RPM with an SSD....it is flash memory, not a spinning hard disk. The read and write speeds are much faster, but they still cost a lot. A small one for your OS and programs, with a traditional hard disk for your data, would make any computer faster.

Here is mine after a video upgrade.

Not high end graphics, but the most intense video I do is watch HD tv.

WEI Error

I get an error with WEI, and I think it may have something to do with my hard drive. Not sure tho...

I had that problem as well a while back as well; if I remember correctly, to get around it I navigated to C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\, and deleted all the xml files in that folder. After a restart I was able to run the WEI check again.. Try that and see if it helps?

IMPORTANT: Check the file names in that folder before you delete them, and don't delete the folder, just the contents... The file names should have the term 'WinSAT' in it along with the date and time it was saved, and have an xml file extension only. Might also want to send them to the Recycle Bin instead of permanently.. Just in case.

This will do it easier, just look at the bread crumb bar for the path and select this.
