Windows Experience Index: whats left?

I have a Core i7 processor, 8 gb RAM and a pretty high end graphics card and still only pushing a score of 5.9. Is there a way to better sleuth out what would help reach 7? More curiosiity than anything else?

Your score is just based on your lowest performing device.

The question is.....are you happy with your PC's performance? You other scores I imagine are pretty solid numbers(and by no means 5.9 a bad performance figure). Try not to look too deeply into the numbers. Enjoy your PC for what it is....If you feel you need performance increases then upgrade components accordingly. Don't let the WEI tell you that you need to.

Windows 10 64 bit

That is the score of the slowest item. In my system it's the primary hard disk. It's rated at 5.9 and the rest of the hardware is rated 7.1 or 7.3.
