So I decided to mess around with my old pc
Asus S2E@ 3.6
4GB Patriot DDR2
3x Nvidia 280 GTX
2x Intel X25G2 60GB Raid 0

I did a clean windows install all patches then installed Nvidia system drivers and video drivers.

WEI Score of
7.4
7.4
7.6
7.6
7.6

I installed the old 197.45 drivers and my video score went up to 7.9 7.9

I then reinstalled the 258.96 drivers and WEI stays at 7.9 7.9

Last thing Im wondering is I had a 7.6 on storage with 1 Intel X25G2 Im now running 2 of them in raid 0 and It didnt go up at all..
Great numbers...but don't fret over the WEI scores, they are fickle and inaccurate. Only a rough estimate I'd say. As suggested, you'd want to use some performance or benchmarking programs to judge actual performance at that level. A Guy

Agreed I view wei as a general guide. However its pointing to a general issue of some sort. Another thing I noticed is when I ran Prime 95 it passes fine. When I run LinX the nvidia driver stops responding and recovers LinX is still running fine. I'm not sure how LinX is impacting my video cards.

Has anyone hit the 7.9 WEI score yet? Just curious. I keep seeing the hard disk as the limiting factor. What's the highest anyone has gotten there and what's the configuration?

Im not sure tbh i dont think i have ever seen a legit score like that, here is an interesting thread on the topic What does it take to get 7.9 in Windows 7? - Page 6 - XtremeSystems Forums it seems even a i7-980x will still only get a 7.8,

I saw this a little while ago about the new OCZ Revo Drives

This guy gets a 7.9 for his YouTube - Few Benchmarks with OCZ RevoDrive 120gb Pcie SSD
