RE: Vista RTM Windows Experience Index
Now thats interesting. I've got this exact problem too.

I've an ATI Radeon X1300, which has 1.0 for both graphics and gaming, though
Aero can be enabled. Its using DirectX 10, and has Shader Model 3. Also the
catalyst software says its using AGP 8x

Going to check the motherboard now.

Cheers for that!
