    Hello Jeffs, welcome to Seven Forums!


    The RC has lower GFX scores than the RTM.

    Here's the rating of the system I just built. I'm not sure why the graphics score for Aero Performance is lower than the gaming graphics score. Also, I had hoped this number (4.2) would have been much higher with my new video card (at least 5). My last video card was 3.3. Is the card I got not "powerful enough"?

    Note: everything works fine, and I'm happy with the performance. Also, I don't game on this machine. I just feel the graphics number is too low. All latest drivers installed. Anyone know of any tweaks?
    Assuming you have the latest build of windows 7 (RTM) and latest graphics driver for your card you should be good.

    Check to see if the Nvidia control panel has your card set to application specific settings and maximum performance.

    It's nice to see the first Core i5 bench :) (That I've seen anyway)

    Yes, I am running the latest build (the release) of W7. The graphics appear to be set to "Let the 3D application decide." The only other setting I see is something called "PhysX GPU Acceration" and it's enabled. I'm not too familiar with the settings in this control panel, and what they do.

    I also set some overclocking up last night using a Gigabyte supplied application and have bumped all the numbers up by +0.1 except the disk performance. The processor is now at 3.0Ghz (up from 2.67). This application also has the ability to adjust the graphics processor clocks as well, so I'll probably try bumping them up a little too and see what happens.

    My WEI Score!!


    Well! Here is my WEI. I exspect to be higher once I install my new HDD. Once it arrives. I still don't understand though. Why my score for my graphics are so low. I have , which I think are 2 pretty good graphics cards. Maybe you guys could offer a solution to me to fix this little problem.

    6.3 for an 8500 series Nvidia card is probably about right. I think my 9800GTX+ only gets around 7.0

    Leap of Faith....


    Hi all Seveners!

    Against my better judgement I finally caved in and tried an in place upgrade from Vista Ultimate to Win7 Ultimate on my main machine. All my others were fresh clean installs, but after hearing a MS rep say how easy his in place upgrade went, and knowing the the kernel is basically the same I had to try.

    In just under 2 hours it completed and now I'm a happy boy!

    Here's my WEI:
