Can anybody shed any light on this matter. I have just upgraded my PC form 2gb RAM to 8gb RAM. My processor is a intelcore(tm)2 CPU 6400 2.13GHZ,2.13GHZ. 32 bit OS VISTA Ultimate, NVDIA Geforce 8800 GTX. However after installing the RAM my windows score has remained at 5.1 which apparently relates to the lowest score which is shown as processor calcs per second. Any advice appreciated
Maj I installed the RAM mainly for gaming purposes, suppose its still OK then even though it only recognises 4gb at least Ive got the option to upgrade to a 64 bit system later on down the line. I take it running this much RAM will not cause any problems. Tks for advice
MAJ - the maximum is 5.9. My system has a total score of 5.4 click here
smudge6521 - You are correct in that it is governed by the lowest score. What is your individual memory score? The RAM above 3 Gb will not help you unless you have 64 bit. You need to look at your hard drive, processor and graphics card and the PSU to drive it all.
Woolwell my memory score is 5.6, my graphics is 5.9 the rest are 5.6 apart from my processor calcs per sec which are scored at 5.1 and as it takes the overall score from my lowest value it scores at 5.1. When I originally bought the PC my score was 5.4 but I realise technology has moved on a bit in 18 months so I guess thats why my score may have dropped just a little.
