It is for "bragging rights" if one does the true WEI score without REG hacks. Mostly I find it useful for myself to note if a tweak or hardware changs makes a difference.
Soon MS will change the standards to keep up with technology and the top score may be 12.9. Then all those with the high 7 scores will
Me included.

My WEI is bigger than your WEI.

I kind of suspect the WEI will go the way of Microsoft Bob.

Nice one.

You said that you've never experienced any problems running 4GB on 64-bit.. I'm at the moment running 32-bit with 4GB of RAM and I want to change for higher RAM use.
Is it worth it?

I think the question here really is, "is the extra RAM you need worth the trouble of re-installing Windows?"

Not JUST for the memory, no. But, the next time you do a clean install, might as well go x64. Unless, of course, you plan to add more memory in the near future, given how cheap it is right now.

Sorry but I don't know what Freddy is using - set up etc but as a novice I rest my laptop to 64but on 4GB and it made a noticeable difference.


My new build i5 2500 I originally has 4GB then thought what the hell so stuck in another 8GB and now it travels at StarTrek warp speed lol!! So I'm wondering why Freddy doesn't reset to 64bit cos you would still have the IE in32bit for Youtube etc ???? (you can back compat with 64bit can't you?)

Or have I got it a bit a about f??

I should defiantly change!
Oh, by the way. I have 2 sticks Kingston DDR2 4096 MBytes Dual (2 sticks x2GB in each) will it be possible to buy 2 more of those, put them in the yellow sockets, and then have 8GB without problems? Will it optimize?

Best Regards,
FredeGail!
