Here is my Windows 7 WEI, badly held back by the HDD   :-[

Mobo = Gigabyte EP43-DS3
CPU = Q9400 @ 3.4GHz
4 GIG RAM Kingston HyperX 1066 MHz @  840 MHz
HD4890 @ GPU 900MHz,  RAM  1100MHz


Here's mine.

MB : Asus P5QL-E
CPU : Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 Socket 775 2.66GHz 1333FSB 6MB
Memory : OCZ Technology OCZ DDR2 Dual Channel 4GB PC2-8500
Graphics : Sapphire HD3850 512MB

Slowed down by my HD too, though the graphics card is working wonders with GTA4.

Decided not to upgrade my HD until I can afford SSD.


Processor Intel core i7 950          Calculation/ sec       7.5
Memory    9 Gb                          Operations/ sec       7.5
Graphics Nvidia Geforce GTX 285  Aero                      7.4
Gaming Graphics                         3D and Gaming       7.4
Primary Hard drive   Intel SSD      Transfer rate           7.8

  Nice not to be pulled down by the Hard drive, I'd thought the Kingston SSD pulled it down to 7.4 but was mistaken.  Hurry up and make a mistake.


Here is mine


MB           MSI MS-7345 (p35)
CPU          intel Q6600
MEM         4GB 800MHz DDR2 Corsair
Graphics   Saphire HD 4870

Proc         7.1
MEM         7.1
Graphics   7.5
Gaming     7.5
P HDD       5.9

Decided to put in the WEI for the Asus,

Processor             7.1
Memory                7.1
Graphics               4.4
Gaming Graphics   5.3
HD                       5.9

  Works good enough for just about everything I do everyday but just ran into a problem with the graphics while using Jiggly in Hal.  The problem is gone in the Gateway computer.


The Asus score says one thing to me:

Pre made PC's lack in graphics performance; I'm not surprised, its something I/we all knew.

IMHO it so much better to build your own rig or get someone to build it for you with all the components you need so you don't end up having a computer that cant do something or cant do very well. 


Carl2 is annihilating us on disk speed

All the CPU's are actually quite close on scores (all quads)

I have the fastest graphics card  ;D

I'm the only one overclocking.  ???


You forgot that I have a beast for a PSU  ;)  Not really rateable or necessary (at the moment) but I had to get some mileage out of the bragging rights lol !


I've go an OCZ quad 12 rail PSU ...  8)

Only 600W but plenty fo my needs

Freddy does have a monster of a PSU, 850watt single rail.  :o

Hey snowy we used to think dual rail or more rails were the best ones, and I think they were, but now the top PSU's like Freddys have a single rail.

Freddys can you post a link to yours please,


Yes, I have read in a few places that single rail are the most stable, that's part of the reason I got it.  Also the whopping 7 years warranty.

Here it is on NewEgg - that's quite a good run down there.

Cost me £130

Here it is on Over Clockers...


Nice PSU. Designed to run 3 x graphics cards

What sort of monster do you have?

I don't really have a monster at the moment.  I got it to help future proof my PSU needs.  But yeah I am tempted by some crossfire set up some time so it should fit.  I am all spent out at the moment though, having got a quad core and some new memory.


Actually im kind of grinning to my self,, I've already told Freddy off for getting that PSU, but at the end of the day I guess I'm only jealous :D

I spent ages telling him that its good to over engineer but there's over engineering and going to far. Freddy is probably grinning reading this too.

And he does have a PSU with a 7 year warranty.


 ;D  Yeah I am grinning !  Well sometimes it's nice to go mad...that's what I say lol
