Your Windows Experience Rating? (Vista +)

If you have Vista or Windows 7 you can have your experience rating calculated:

Go to Control Panel and go to system. Somewhere in there is an area that has a rating. You might have to click "Refresh Rating" or something to get it to run the calculation.

It will give you a rating from 1.0 to 7.9 based on 5 different criteria. What number does yours come up with?

Mine is:

Processor: 7.0
Memory (RAM): 7.0
Graphics: 6.0
Gaming graphics: 6.0
Primary hard disk: 5.9

Base score: 5.9

Mien isn't too insane but it's definitely not a bad computer, I should probably upgrade eventually.

Processor: 4.9
Memory (RAM): 4.9
Graphics: 5.9
Gaming Graphics: 5.9
Primary hard disk: 5.9

Base Score 4.9

So my computer is sort of keeping up with the times, but it could definitely use some improvement.

I'm planning on building a beast next year it'll have at least 8GB of RAM hopefully 16 in DDR3, I'm also planning on an intel XEON.

Not too bad for a laptop I think.
