Windows 7: Show Us Your WEI [3]

My desktop will be back on Monday, so here are the netbook scores. 5.8 is not too shabby for a 5,400 RPM spinner.

CPU and graphics overclocked.
Great scores, Congrats.

The M4 looks very nice, it's high on my next SSD list.

Well, my replacement graphics card did indeed lower my score...however, it was free and it works better than the dead card. I am curious as to how a card with 512MB RAM scores worse than one with 256MB though.....is it slower memory?
My 8600GT scored 6.4 in both categories. I know it was slightly overclocked, and this card is not, but it still seems like quite a drop. It seems perhaps more drastic than it really is, because it dropped my overall score down from 5.9 to 4.9. But the rest of the computer still zings along like it always has.

I don't want to sound like a whiner....it cost me nothing and it still is capable of doing everything I normally do, I think. So I am happy to have my desktop back, as it is far more powerful than my little netbook (which filled in admirably while the desktop was down).

Well, we expected that. It is more than just memory (although there is certainly ddr, ddr2, ddr5), it is shaders, etc. The hierarchy chart did say it would be a few rungs down the ladder. But if it does what you need, that is what's important. A Guy

Quite right. I'm noticing the little things right now, like how much faster web pages load in, how nice it is to have more USB ports than I actually need, as opposed to trying to shuffle things around in the three ports my netbook has,, how much I missed the dual monitors, etc. So I'm a happy camper.

You never notice how much dual monitors means to you until they are taken away....

so so true. With my awful old 2005 laptop I had my monitor connected to the left of it with both at the same level for multi-monitors. With my new desktop though, I can only use the monitor, which isn't a particularly good one and is definitely no fun alone Can't wait until I buy a new monitor, of course now as it'll be a new monitor, I can get two identical ones for perfect multi monitors

ATI Radeon HD4870X2

Some minor overclocking of the GFX card would balance it out nicely, but I'm not comfortable with that without changing the GFX card's cooling. It tends to run quite hot by default
