ATI x1950 Pro video card gets 1.0 Vista graphics score
I installed an X1950 Pro 256 mb video card (Visiontek) into my system and it
receives a 1.0 for both graphics and game graphics.

The CPU is an AMD Barton 2500+ (a bit long in the tooth, i know) with 1 gb
RAM.

I loaded the lateset drivers from ATI ( 8.33 released this week). I have
refreshed the WEI still get 1.0 for both scores.

In the details, Vista sees the card correctly but does not list it as WDDM.

I also found that changing the AGP aperture in the BIOS to 32 made Windows
slow down and Company of Heroes almost non-playable.

I'm not sure what the AGP aperture has to do with this card which is a
PCI-E device.

The driver you should have downloaded from ATI is the Catalyst 7.1
package (it may have a designation of 8.33 in CCC, I'm not sure). If
you downloaded anything other than 7.1, I'd suggest UNinstalling all ATI
programs and entries in Control Panel/Programs, rebooting, and then
running Catalyst 7.1 Setup.

My PowerColor X1950 Pro's WEI was 1.0, just like yours. After the
Windows-signed 7.1 Catalyst was installed, it went up to 5.9.

Are you able to run Aero with the driver you installed? If yes, then
the WEI must be wrong. If no, then the driver is not installed properly
or you have the wrong driver.
