Windows 7: Graphics Card/Onboard Graphics for Media Centre PC

This is bliss... I can't believe I managed to boot into Windows 7 without reactivation coming up for changing hardware...



I intend to install Windows 7 64 bit anyhow... Although strangely the system is now picking up 8GB of ram in Windows 7 32 bit..

Graphics score seems a bit low... my 5850 gets 7.7... did you install the drivers?
i5-750 default clock speed, 5850, 4GB G.Skill Pi, Samsung F3 1TB.

I agree about the graphics. My cheap 5770 gets 7.4

One thing I just noticed about WEI: which drivers you install has an effect. It shouldn't, because it's supposed to rate hardware, but with the last set of nvidia drivers I get 7.9 on my graphics score; with the 275.33's I just re-ran it and got a 7.8 (like I have room to gripe )... so it's possible the low score is simply to to this set of drivers you're running (if you're running them yet?). I wouldn't be overly concerned about it though... wei is meaningless and has zero impact on real world performance and AMD releases new sets very often (too often if you asked me).

whoa... if that was an SSD, that would be one of the best WEI scores i've ever seen. Congratulations
