Mine's a 2.6, but it's a notebook. If it weren't for the graphics, it'd be a 4.8.

4.8; not bad for an AGP system (A64 X2 3800+ and a HD 2600 Pro).

Laptop gets a 3.0, Radeon X1200 and Turion X2 TL-56.

Thats my new computer. I hoped to get a 5.9, but unluckily I got 5.5. The RAM is holding me back. I got 8GB RAM, but apparently the chip specifications weren't enough.

This happened to me. You need to run them in the closest ratio with your CPU frequency or tighten the timings.

For instance, my 8GB OCZ Ram gives 5.8 @ the recommended config. (4-4-4-15/2T-2.0v). I got 5.9 by using 4-4-4-12/2T-2.1v.

Also back when I was overclocking my CPU, the DRAM was 1:1 with the CPU Freq. (400). It gave 5.9 @ low timings (5-5-5-15/18).

Do these numbers really have any relevance to how Windows performs? I'm running my desktop at fair high res and I'm running Aero. It rates the card as a 1.0 (its the only 3650 AGP card and its not an ATI official release). I'm playing most modern games on it.

that rating is messed up, 3650 should get much higher than that.

Can I change the timings without buying new RAM chips?! If so how?!

I was 5.5 on Vista Ultimate 32-bit but when I "upgraded" to 64-bit it went down to 5.4...why is that anyway? (same happened with my old machine when I upgraded to 64-bit Vista, went down 1 point)

I just built a new computer about 3 weeks ago, after some problems, it's been great now. I wasn't going for a 5.9 specifically but I was pretty excited when I saw it.

I kind of want to get another HD4870 though, or replace my HD4870 with a 4870x2 to see if I can't play Crysis on maximum... It runs very good on High/Very High now but I want to see better.

Yes definitely through the BIOS.

Running a solid 5.9 here on my desktop after my HDD upgrade last week :). My laptop is running a 4.1 score.

Pretty sure Vista is giving your ATI 3650 a "1.0" because you dont have the drivers installed correctly. Get the latest ATI drivers from http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

After successful install of the drivers, do "update my score" in Windows Experience Index.

I'm happy :) The first time I ran it right after installing Windows it was 1.0 :p

I guess 5.9 is the highest anyone has ever got it?

Here's mine! Memory speed is 800mhz and can be higher...I didn't want to spend the extra money.

5.9s all round :). I wish Microsoft would update the indexing system so that I can find out what my score really is. I know it's 5.9 or above, but I want to know how far above!

Also, my hard disk is partitioned wrong, hence the funky hard disk size of 436GB, it's actually a half-terabyte drive, but I've got some unallocated space.
