Maybe Win 7 only (could be in Vista, not sure).

Press Win key + Pause then click on "Windows Experience Index".

Just interested to see how people's computers are rated generally.

i7 2700K, GTX 580, not sure RAM speed but 8GB

7.1 for all, except 5.1 for disk.

Oddly, I built this computer out of cheap parts back in 07, but it still kicks ass. Did get a newer GPU since though.

well, i'm too stupid to know how to post the image

so,
processor 7.5 (i5 2500)
ram 7.8 (12gb of ripjaw goodness)
graphics 7.9 (gainward phantom ftw, only a gtx 570)
gaming graphic 7.9
primary hd 5.9 (not sure why this low, when the SSD was on a SATA 2 port, it was 7.6, but when I move it to the SATA 3 port, I got this score, speed appears not to have been affected)

Considering my GPU is a 560Ti standard clock speed, this assessment is clearly flawed. Rest of it seems about right though.

7200 RPM stock SATA drives. 5.9 isn't bad, just ordinary.

I imagine that the people with higher scores will be SSD/RAID.

Yeah I don't think it's too accurate. I've got 2 x 570 OC's and before my 7.8 (I re-ran it just for this thread) the graphics scores were 7.7 or 7.6. I don't see how it can fluctuate so much with the same hardware unless maybe the drivers do something to it. Maybe we should also post our driver versions or something.

I really dont think a 5.9 for the HD is letting down the team, it mearly looks poor when compared with other scores,

that said, a single SSD can pull a 7.8, but raid those SSD's, and the score isn't going to reflect the performance difference

Seems kinda weird that a i2600k, a 120gig SSD and 16gig of ram score lower then a eVGA 570Ti GFX... What / how does the test work?

Mine is 7.9 across the board except for the CPU (i7-3820) which is 7.7.

Running 16GB of Kingston Hyper X 1600Mhz, Kingston Hyper X 120GB SSD and a Gforce 560TI.

I'm not a huge Kingston fan, I just get it cheap through work.

Curious. Mine is 7.6 across the board except for a 6.9 on the storage speed.

But it's an SSD. Woulda thought it would be better.

That's on a 2011 iMac with 3.4GHz i7 Sandy Bridge, 12GB DDR3 (2x2 + 2x4), 256GB SSD, 2TB hard disk and an AMD Radeon 6970M 1GB on the 2560x1440 display.

I have a couple of Crucial M4's, would recommend, no probs at all so far.

According to this data the Intel SSDs have the lowest failure rates with Crucial SSDs in second place.

Even at 1% it's worth noting that your girlfriend is more likely to get pregnant while on the pill than your SSD failing.
