measures the capability of your computer's hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your computer will perform better and faster than a computer with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.
What is the Windows Experience Index?

In short it's a quick way to compare systems to one another. Say you're in the market looking for a PC, well you can use conceivably use WEI as a measuring stick to see how one computer compares to another.

However human nature being what it is says "I gotta have that high score or my system is a bust"...... OK

BTW I don't think this "marketing ploy" is benifitting Microsoft as much as say the hardware vendors - I don't see people buying Windows to get a better WEI score, I see them buying hardware - none of which Microsoft makes

Just some clarification

Ok, so I don't like the monitor in the desk, it was cool for awhile but it is just a pain in the arse to use. But last night I went to microcenter and picked up some Cold Cathodes for some ambient lighting.. Here is the result!

Maxwell,
The up lighting looks wicked. I just went to dual 23" LG LED's from my 26" 720p LCD TV/Monitor. I love the dual screens as I've used these before at a previous office but also miss the extra real screen of the 26". I guess the perfect solution would be at least 2 or 3 25"-30" screens or check this wicked set up out !

The lighting is awesome! It also helps for the screens not to be so blinding at night, it's just awesome to have the ambient lighting.. The Cold Cathodes were only 10$ at microcenter, but they connect by molex. To fix that problem, I created a molex extension cord using a old power supply, it works great and the lights turn off when the computer does at night! I also mounted a switch under my right monitor so I can turn them off during the day when I want to.

The eyefinity setups are sweet.. I used to have 3 22" monitors, but the other one that I used didn't match, and wasn't as good of a display as the ones that I currently have, so I stopped using it. So I know what you mean about missing that extra real estate. I would love to have all of those monitors in portrait though..

Added an Ultra Kaze 3000 to my Silver Arrow. Maybe I used too much TIM (I think I did) but temps stayed pretty much the same. When I put my new MOBO in I'll be more careful when applying the paste.
