I dunno. I have a 256 MB graphics card, and Vista only took 1 MB of my system memory, so now I only have 2047 MB. :(

I just got RC1 installed, and got a 4.3.
It was low on the CPU, and I have it O/Ced to only under 2.7GHz currently, I think if I put it back up to 2.8, I could get it to 4.5, which is what the mem score is.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

MY NEW SCORE: 5.2

CPU: 5.2
Memory: 5.4
Graphics: 5.9
Gaming Graphics: 5.8
Primary hard disk: 5.4

Nice, my Dual Core & new 2GB memory kit really helped me from a 4.6 to a 5.2 ;)

I have no idea what my laptop's score is in Vista. I'm not brave enough to try, and I'm enjoying it very much with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Eh. Someday. :D

I've got it running on my laptop, and I must say I'm quite impressed. Didn't have to install a single driver and everything appears to work fine, even the internal tv card. I think it scores about 3.7 if memory serves correctly.

Overclocking does bring up the score in case anyone wants to know.

Havent checked, only installed it this evening.

I'm OC'd to 2.6 DDR2-650 at the mo, and my ram is stable.

Its a pity, because my CPU is rtock solid stable at 3.2+ (havent gone much further due to RAM, minimum divider is 1:1)

I'll ru it again in a while, but I think it will still be low due to my HDD

Oh, that is right, it takes the lowest number for the score. Well, good luck
