    What's your Windows 8 Experience Index Score?

    Making a thread for Windows 8 so we can compare how hardware is rated under the new scale.

    This is the system I just got done building this morning.

    Re: What's your Windows 8 Experience Index Score?

    I've played around with each release of Win8. I do so using VM's though, so experience scores don't really work.

    I can't be arsed to dual-boot or install multiple HDD's in my PC's these days. Win8 is getting better with every release, but I still have a hard time getting used to the new UI...

    Re: What's your Windows 8 Experience Index Score?

    I don't have it on my main PC yet, but the recent build overall seems much better than the ones before it.

    Windows 8 Release Preview on my Media PC:

    Q6600 non oc - 7.1
    8GB Patriot DDR2 - 7.1
    Aero graphics - 7.8
    Radeon 5870 - 7.8
    150GB Raptor - 5.9

    Score determined by lowest subscore - 5.9

    If my current SSD survives till I get a new SSD later, I'll put this one in there and bring that up to 7.5 hopefully.
