Sorry Im not at home now, I cant remember each items score

My hd is so small because its my drive dedicated to betas. This drive was purchased for vista beta, and now it has a new use.

Mine is a 4.2 because I am using integrated graphics on my mobo.. Hard to complain when it can play 1080P flawlessly though.

Processor - 7.2
Memory - 6.0
Graphics - 4.7
Gaming Graphics - 4.2
Hard Disk - 6.0

Intel q9300
4 GB OCZ DDR2 800
Nvidia 9300 IGP
500 GB Seagate Sata 2


Here is my performancxe index. I don't know why its so low, its a 3.6, but I have a pretty good graphics card.

Here's mine, Obviously velociraptors are a bit slow!:D

It also locks up if I try to run a game (like hearts or solitare)

I'm surprised that 2 ATI HD 4870's in crossfire have only a 6.8 for games 3d!

Yeah doesn't make much sense. I get a 6.0 for 1 GTX 260 Core 216 and you get 6.8 for 2 HD4870s? something's off :)

1 4870 is on par with the GTX 260. I'd just like to know how they get to the numbers they show.

I know..if nothing else your score should have been close to 8 I'd think. On the other hand, who knows whether that test even uses crossfire or sli. Yeah I'd like to know how they get the numbers too.

Base Score 6.0 Nvidia 9600
