RE: Windows Experiance Index
The reason why your WEI graphics scores are low is because the 8400GS only
has a 64-bit interface. In contrast, my figures show Graphics 5.9 and Gaming
Graphics 5.1. This is with a 7600GT with a 128-bit interface. For your
information, the next graphics card with a higher specification than yours is
the 8500GT. This has a 128-bit interface.
