I say this with all due respect...but please don't get an SSD to enhance your WEI score. I'm not sure why people still focus on it, but it is an utterly useless tool that isn't a benchmark at all. There are plenty of good reasons to get an SSD, and I'm using one in my system as the system volume....but changing your WEI scores isn't one of those reasons.

Besides....it's a worthless score. See (no, that's not photoshopped):

I like my SSD, but I don't feel it's necessary. Still have no issues for most day-to-day tasks just using a standard mechanical hard drive.

7.9 is the current highest, but considering it is such a worthless tool, you can edit an XML file to make it whatever score you want. WEI is good for one and only one thing...running initially to make sure AERO is enabled. After that, it should be completely ignored and forgotten.

ahh right, i see what your saying. cant be used for bragging rights.
my purpose was bringing my whole pc to a level field for myself.

plus i dont know how say 2.8 Ghz on a 6 core cpu would translate into x MB/s read speed... if there is 1. if you understand what im saying

That's just it....it doesn't mean you are at a level playing field. The scores don't equate across the hardware categories. You need benchmark tools based on the types of usage you do in order to find out the weakest point.

Processor speed isn't measured in MB/s so I'm not sure where you are going with that. You can't try to find a common numerical "value" to associate with your hardware to figure out the bottleneck. I know it seems like WEI is trying to do that, but it isn't. You don't match up your hard drive with the type of processor you have to make sure they are equal. You figure out the uses for your computer, what resources matter most, and then find out what your bottleneck is.

For example, if a system's graphic's card had a lower WEI than the rest of the components, but the system isn't used for anything graphically intense...then who cares?

I agree with DeaconFrost. WEI is used by me to find what part of my computer is a little slower than other parts. Then I can decide whether I need to upgrade that area or not. Comparing one computers WEI to another computer is kids toys. Some say they don't need a ssd. That's fine, if you are happy. I only need one video card that's why I don't have more. I don't know why I have four printers. I already gave two away. I should look into that again. Get my drift? Everything isn't for everybody. If you are looking for speed to match the rest of your computers speed a ssd will help.
