It can handle pretty much anything I throw at it... yet the Windows Experience is at around 3, because the cards are geared towards 2D usage (which is what I use) and not 3D gaming or whatever is needed for those extra points.

    Focus on what works...
    I'd guessed it was maybe not a true reflection of performance, especially as the index is the minimum score from the various tests.

    I was trying to find out if that setup would max out any of the scores at 7.9 or not.

    What is the best overall system benchmark these days? I am going to upgrade a home PC and since it is an AMD 3200 system you can tell I haven't done much upgrading for a while, I'm pretty much out of the loop with regards to CPU/MBs etc.

    The great thing these days is, for the bulk of us, pretty much any low/medium price desktop is powerful enough for what we do.
    I'm excluding gamers from this statement.
