Those scores don't look like an old computer. Nice job. Good scores.

It's always nice to have your low score change to another device that already had a high score

Previously the lowest scores were 3.5 for graphics (Nvidia geforce 210) & old HDD spinner at 5.9 so the HIS 6870 which I installed only yesterday was the last component needed to increase the overall score.

I should also note I previously had upgraded my power supply to a 600 watt OCZ modular from the 300 watt stock POC in anticipation of a higher performance video card.

Get a 5.9 just because of my HDD. But oh well doesn't bug me my computer still runs every program I want fine and doesn't have a long start-up time.

A nice system like that desserves an SSD.

I'm assuming you're talking about mine if not I'm sorry but anyway... I'd love to have an SSD but as a student I have no money to spend on one. Being I'd also like to keep my data in tact for years to come I might try backing up my system and reloading it onto a RAID 5 array to boost speed and redundancy.

Would definitely love to be in the all 7's club but as of right now there's no way I could afford an SSD. I will eventually get enough money to get one, being I have a promising opportunity for a job over the summer. I have to agree it really does deserve a SSD it's a beast of a system.

Forget Raid - nothing but trouble. SSDs suitable to house the OS sell for less than $100 - Example: OCZ OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G Vertex 2 Solid State Drive - 60GB, 2.5, SATA II at TigerDirect.com

Ya the main thing is this is all data I've gathered over the course of almost 3 years, which is about 480G worth, which being I have few pics, no videos, and not many large games, is alot of stuff I need to be around. I could see maybe transferring stuff over but that can be a bit messy in my experience. As far as RAID being a mess goes I know. Recently dealt with a guy who's music studio system suffered a total burn out. The RAID array was wiped out, partially due to a low-end disk controller, but that was just his OS. He kept all his data on a roughly 9 year old SCSI HDD. Gotta love how other people set up systems.

There is no problem moving all your data to the spinners. We all do that and only keep the OS and programs (less games) on the SSD. Have a look at this to give you an idea on how to get started: SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System
