That's the current rating for 7200 RPM hard drives.

I also like my AMD processor. Intel has the fastest CPU's on the high end, but I just thought the price was crazy. My AMD was the best performer you could buy for the price point. This allowed me to go crazy on the graphics card. Maybe it would have been better to spend more on the CPU and get a cheaper graphics card, who knows. But I've always liked AMD's "fastest CPU for the price" angle over the years. That always helped me have a decent system when I didn't have much money. Now that I'm out of college with a good career, price isn't much of an issue when buying a computer...but I'm not interested in wasting a lot of money either. I'm having the same amount of fun going with an AMD system as I would with an Intel system for at least $400 more (at the time I priced it).

Well my system isn't pre-built and my scores are between 7.4 - 7.8. You are right though in that it is geared towards something...it's geared toward encouraging people to buy new computers more often. Microsoft believes that will translate into more OS sales, and they're probably right. It's still a valid score to compare though - as long as you know what it is, and the benchmarks are taken around the same time period.

I haven't haven't had a gaming system or played games since about 5 years ago. I just collected the parts and put this system together last week...am very happy with it. I finally upgraded to a new case too. My old Antec ATX case was over 13 years old and had been through both a flood and a fire (nothing wrong with it, but it looks sad so I'll give it away). What's the most popular legit benchmark test now?

The reason I believe that it's geared towards people who have pre-builts is because of what you get when you click "What do these numbers mean?".

Here's an excerpt:
Quote:
You can use the base score to buy programs and other software that are matched to your computer's base score. For example, if your computer has a base score of 3.3, then you can buy any software designed for this version of Windows that requires a computer with a base score of 3 or lower.
I think that most people here on Overclock.net will never use the WEI for this purpose. I can elaborate, but I think the reason why is obvious.

I'm also looking at the fact that they used such low WEI scores as their examples. I mean, almost everyone here on Overclock.net has at least a 5.9 because they have a mechanical hard drive (both my 250 GB 7200.10 and my VelociRaptor get a subscore of 5.9 while my SSD gets a subscore of 7.0). Not only that, but almost nobody here on Overclock.net needs any sort of rating system to help them determine what software and games they both can and can not buy. After all, most systems here meet or far exceed some of the highest system requirements at any given time.

Very good point about the purpose of WEI...I am a new user of Win7 and hadn't seen what you quoted yet. I'm convinced of a dual purpose now since I read an article in "Advertising Age" a while back where a marketing suit from Microsoft was interviewed about how they were using some new utilities to encourage sales. He refused to get specific about which "utilities", but it makes sense to me that WEI is at least one of them. I also agree with your point about its other purpose too...which seems to be a way that it could encourage sales too as I think about it.

I also agree with your point about the rating system. I believe this can apply to enthusiasts in any area though. For example, those who are into sport/muscle cars will spend half their lives tinkering with engines to get maximum horse power, acceleration, handling etc. But when it comes down to it, they probably aren't going to get to work any faster than their neighbor with a Toyota Corolla. After the ability to go 90mph, the rest is usually overkill, just as it is for many of our computers and gaming. There are other benefits though - such a car can have social benefits that a Corolla owner doesn't have. As for a fast computer, there can be many benefits outside of gaming if using the computer for other things (video editing, etc) not to mention the ability to easily have several other tasks going while gaming.

A more practical thing to measure for cars would be mpg...but just like the energy efficiency of my monitor, for some reason it's not as sexy to talk about.

If the computer scores were completely meaningless, no one would care about posting the scores here. To me, the more interesting conversation isn't about the scores themselves, but what we're talking about right now - the fact that the scores have meaning, but the meaning has changed a bit over time.

But yeah, I agree with just about everything you're saying - very good points...we're just coming at it from different angles.
