Windows 7: WEI Score lowered

WEI Score lowered

Not sure if this is an issue or anything common, but my build prompted me to refresh the WEI saying new hardware detected. That isn't true, nor have I updated the drivers recently. Perhaps Windows Update did...

So I run the WEI analysis and my graphics and gaming graphics show the same number (4.6). My gaming graphics has always said 4.6, but the graphics score was higher (4.9).

Drivers really affect WEI scores???

Low scores I know. I am looking at upgrading my card.

Current card: PNY NVidia GeForce 9400GT 512MB GDDR2

WEI was lowered? Looks like it was increased. I've had driver changes increase WEI subscores by a tenth of a point but never three tenths! Bonus!

Absolutely, my graphics score jumped 1.3 pts, when upgrading from the default Windows ATI drivers to ATI version 10.3.
