Does anyone know what the WEI is for an nVidia 670?

I recently purchased the MSI 670 and according to my computer the WEI is 7.6. I know I can't go much higher (7.9 is the highest), but my 460 (768MB) was rated a 7.5, so I'm really surprised it is only .1 higher.

Is it possible I'm doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Your Windows Experience Index (WEI) is based off the lowest score among several scores. I assume the 7.6 you mention is only the graphics card portion? Most of the time the thing that holds down the WEI is the hard drive score. The 670 should be getting higher ratings. But that card also down-clocks itself when you're not gaming. It could be the power settings are keeping it from the true 7.9 it should be getting. My 560 Ti has a 7.9 rating in WEI.

All that said ---
I would put NO weight in the WEI values at all. None, don't even worry about it unless you're seeing significant performance issues and using it as a preliminary troubleshooting tool.

You are correct - I was referring to the graphic portion (both WEIs were 7.6).

I did re-run the tests and it now came up as 7.8. That's better and it makes me happier (I guess). But you're right, I shouldn't hang my hat on the WEI rating. I appreciate you putting into perspective for me.
