The score system is a piece of junk.

My system scores 5.9 on everything bar the RAM which is 5.5.

My kids computer scores better in the RAM than mine at 5.7, which is weird.

The scores are not consistent and non standard try something like PCmark.

Vista home premium.

Mine is 3.2 and it flies.

It plays all the games I want, flawlessly.

It does all I want in a blink of an eye and cost £349. What did yours cost?

'Just Interesting to know likely upgrades'

3.4 on a Toshiba laptop running Vista Home Premium on an Intel T5500 1.66Ghz dual core CPU, 2mb DDR ram, GeForce Go 7600 graphics.

Interestingly when I downloaded a fresh driver for the graphics so I could run HL2 Orange Box my score went from 3.2 to 3.4

As paul€ says, upgrade the component that scores 4.9 which by the looks of things is either the Pentium D cpu or your VGA card.

Went to broadband speed test, shows @9.5MBps, today downloaded file from t'internet at 760kbps, not bad really !!

  Technotiger 19:39 25 Jan 2008

Yes, pretty good. I'm lucky if I can get 125kbps. Mind you, I am only on 2Mb BB.
