    Gah people think the windows experience score is the holy grail of whats a good or bad computer.

    That score means ****. Just ignore it... It's completely inaccurate just like minimum system requirements on the back of games. Want a good system test.. Get 3DMark06 or Vantage

    That is all.

    Computers are like air conditioning. Open windows and it stops working

    Indeed, the score is just for immature idiots to brag to their equally daft friends. My two Win7 machines (E6400's, using onboard video) get a lowly 5.9 overall yet they positively fly in use.
    Main PC - C2Q Q6600 / Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3 / 2GB Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500 / Zalman CNPS9700 / Antec 900 / Corsair HX 620W. Network - DD-WRT ~ 2node WDS-WPA2/AES ~ Buffalo WHR-G54S's. 3node WPA2/AES ~ WRT54GS v6 (inc. WEP BSSID), WRT54G v2, WRT54G2 v1

    I only get 5.9 and it can handle everything I throw at it. Spec in sig.

    its hype. If u want to know how good your PC is then try 3DMark Vantage for 3D graphics and gaming benchmark or PCMark Vantage for complete PC benchmark and analysis.
