    Ok. So i have just replaced my failing 8500 Graphics with a BFG 9600GT Overclocked.
    I ran the windows assessment tool and my aero performance rating has gone up from 5.1 to 7.9
    but my gaming graphics score has gone down from 4.3 to 2.0.
    Anyone know what gives?:(
    I should say im running windows 7build 7022

    I tend not to worry about how Windows rates my hardware but rather than how my games run with it. It is odd how its gone down though

    I overclocked my 8500GT graphics card and ran some benchmark software. I found that a 2% increase would gain performance, but anything more than that and I lost a lot. Some graphics cards just do that. Overclocking doesn't always gain you more performance.
