Hello Yentenwangchuk,

The highest score you can get is 7.9 per item.

The WEI basically helps you and Windows 7 know about the performance of your installed devices and what features (ex: Aero) can be enabled based on this. The information box (green) at the top of the tutorial can give you more details about the WEI.

Processor -> 5.9
Memory (RAM) -> 5.5
Graphics -> 4.5
Gaming Graphics -> 5.5
Primary Hard Disk -> 5.2

BASE SCORE = 4.5

Good enough?

Hello GamerX,

It depends on what you need your PC for, but it's ok for general usage.

I get a 7.6 and my subscores are 7.8, 7.9, 7.9, 7.9, and 7.6. Guess my disk transfer is the weakest point.

7.6 is not weak at all. That must be a SSD. With a HDD you usually get 5.9 max.

Hello Jaftwo,

That's not a bad WEI score at all. About all you could do is to get a fast SSD drive to install Windows on instead if you wanted to try and improve the hard drive score, but it's really not needed unless you just wanted to since 7.6 is not bad.

Yes, I have a SSD and I'm not meaning it's a low score at all. I think I could improve it with a bios setting (ACHI?)

Yeah, you would want to use a AHCI/SATA setting for a SSD in your BIOS. If it's not already, then it may help a tiny bit.

AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista
