5.9 is about the best score you'll get with a single HDD. If you want a higher score, probably have to buy a SSD.

an SSD is a different kind of storage device then what you have currently, WD Caviar Black. That is a mechanical storage device (HDD). SSD's don't have moving parts, they use solid state memory. I gave you a link that you can read about them in my first post. They are very expensive, and the capacity is not very big compared to the price/capacity of a regular HDD. Not worth getting just to raise your WEI score.

Up to you if you want to get an SSD just to raise your wei score, but read what I posted above first.

Yes it does considerably in some situations. But I would do a little reading on how they work, different models and sizes vs prices before jumping in and buying one.

Yes. I use a 30GB OCZ Vertex (about $120) as my Windows 7 system/boot/applications drive and use a 300GB standard HDD for my user profile, games, page file etc. My WEI disk score is 6.6
