Post your VISTA scores!

MODERATOR EDIT: Note the computer scoring application for Vista is part of the Vista operating system. Leonardo

Oh the joy of seeing what the scores are only to compare with your friends and then try to beat them buy going out and upgrading whatever you can LOL! What a clever trick!

Anyhow I managed a measly 4.1 - for some reason my friends P4 3ghz got a higher score than my Athlon 64 3500+ Venice!! :eek:

I have 2 raptors together and only got a 5.9 oh well.

So what have you guys got? I know a lot of you have pretty serious high end machines and no doubt will get something amazing, not sure if the rating is out of 10 if it is then my system aint too shabby.

    Ouch must be scores out of 10 then, I heard you need at least 4gb of ram to fully unlock the potential of Vista!

    I have Home Premium 64bit OEM.

    Thought the highest was 5 something? Cant remember what I read on it lol. HP hasnt released any drivers for the OS yet so looks like Im going to be forced into waiting unless Vista has them all incorporated in it.

    5.9 is the highest score u can make

    yes only M$ can make a rating system that goes 1-5.9

    i dont have it yet im gonna wait for drivers and the release of ATI R600 and what not till i buy my new comp

    Guess Ill find out what mine is tomorrow after I take Home Premium back to the BX and get Ultimate. Sad you have to dig to find out that only Ultimate ships with both 64bit and 32bit versions of the OS.

    It's part of the operating system :)

    I don't have a score. Not touching Vista for a fair while. Too many things I rely on XP for (code editors, sound recording) are not vista compatible.

    My best friend got Vista last night and he loves it. I think he got a score of like 4.1 or something like that, I know it was in the fours. All his drivers were already installed also, he didn't have to download anything.

    I have 2.5gb of ram and all I can muster is a 3.8. Peeps with less memory got better scores.

    Is it DDR? The system in your sig says 512mb of PC3200. The ram speed will have a lot to do with that score :(
  • edited February 2007
    I got 2GB of Crucial DDR400 and 512MB of Kingston DDR that I'm not positive about the speed. Just thought I'd score better in the ram department with that.

    Try scoring without the 512 and see if it changes ...just a thought.

    The score is based solely on bandwidth, and according to your motherboard manual, you can only run in single channel mode with 3 sticks, need 2 or 4 for dual channel.

    It doesn't like my hard drive too much, but thats probably because I've maxxed out all the ports available for hard drives on my motherboard ^_^ I will down my clock speed to the standard for this CPU just so you guys can see the difference it makes :)

    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo e6300 @ 3.1 - 5.7
    Memory: 2GB CAS4 6400 1.9v @ 2.1 (Running in 4300 mode to keep timings xD) - 5.9
    Graphics: 8800GTX - 5.9
    Gaming Graphics: lol - 5.9
    Primary hard disk: vista does not like my raid drivers sooooo... 80GB SATA2 - 5.3

    This is strange, at 1.86 stock I get the same score, but before at 2.6 it was 5.4 for CPU. I think once you have a higher score and you score lower it doesn't like it and keeps the higher one so you still buy their software :P

    Finally got around to pulling out that 512mb stick of Kingston. My score rose to a 4.6. I guess more isn't always better. At least that stick of ram was free.
