So I broke down last night and bought Vista. I figured I'm going to get it eventually for DX10 based games, may as well get it now and have it configured by then.. anyway, I did a scan and found I have a score of 5.5

I was just curious as to what other scores there are.. I never saw anything regarding a maximum score, so I'm not sure if that's good or not.

There's an upgrade advisor available for XP users but I'm not sure if it will calculate your performance benchmark or not.

It's called the System Assesment Tool or WinSAT. It's purpose is to eventually provide a standard benchmark for gaming. It is only available and currently included with Windows Vista. Your base score represents the lowest subscore of an individual hardware component (see n0e's screenshot and you'll see what I mean). The highest score possible is 5.9. Since n0e's base score is 5.5, I'd have to say that's pretty damn good.

The initial scan(1/30/07) was 3.0, and the lastest scan(today) was unchanged. It took me about 2 mins. to find out were it is exactly.

I got a 4.8, even with 2gb of DDR2 and an 8800GTS card. My Core2Duo 6300 is holding me at 4.8.

Bah, I don't have a chance in hell due to the cheapo RAM I gt given alongside my kingston RAM, my lowest is a 4.0 (RAM) with my highest being my 6600 graphics card at 5.6
