@Shadowjk Very nice setup! The stats are definitely impressive, and your WEI score on your ram should go up when you get a dedicated video card, if you are using onboard right now. The onboard graphics use your ram as video memory cause there is no dedicated vram, so once you put in a dedicated card, in my experience the ram score will go up.

I agree with you about WEI - It would be cool to have both Average and Lowest Score

EDIT: Plus I cannot get anymore than 5.9 for Disk Transfer Rate unless I have a SSD

Josh
gee, that sucks about the HDD :/
they should do two different scores, one for hdd and one for ssd, as if I had shelled out on a barracuda or caviar, i'd hope to get a really high score for it :/

The WEI was initially started by MS to let people test their computer to see if it could run Vista and Aero.
They wanted to point out the lowest performing component, which was usually RAM and graphics at that time.

Many complaints were made because Vista wouldn't run on older computers with low performance components, which is a big part of the maligned reputation Vista ended up with.

It has turned into a contest and money making tool due to the quest for the 'Perfect Score', which BTW is nearly impossible, you need lot's of N2 cooling to get the CPU overclocked enough to get a 7.9, many have tried and some have achieved it.

that'd be pretty sweet to get a 7.9 on the processor. do SSDs get a 7.9?
it is a pity about the bad rep vista got, as I thought it was quite a good OS, but people thought (as you said) that they would be able to run it just as well on an XP machine. XP was a breeze on my laptop when it only had 256MB RAM, but even when I doubled the RAM vista was still slow. shame really :/

Yes some do, Mine will when I first do a reformat/reinstall. After a short while it goes down to 7.6 Don't know why but it does.

That is the same thing with me, but I know that right when I get one, Windows 8 will come out, and then we will have to strive to get an 8.9!

yeah, thats just the way the conumer's luck is with technology
eg with apple products, we all know the new iphone will make our shiny new one redundant and worth a lot less in precisely 12 months, yet we still buy one. we're trapped and the companies know it, yet dont do anything to make it better :/
