Added more RAM, and my RAM score dropped
Ok I sold a car, and built a new computer, and this thing is a monster to say the least. Dual Nvidia 9800's running in quad SLI, 4GB corsair DDR2 the whole thing top of the line. The other day i decided lets add a little more RAM, so I went to Newegg, picked up the identical kind 2x2 and I put it in, and now my PC is down to 5.4 when it started at 5.9's across the board. Does anyone have any suggestions on why, or what to do about the issue. Thanks.

Are all your RAM the same speed? Also how much RAM do you have, because I know that sometimes having too much RAM can actually hurt system performance a little in some areas.

Plus, I am not a big fan or follower of the Microsoft System Rating feature, I don't trust it as being accurate anyways, but that is just me. Cannot wait to see what my system ranks in Windows 7 though when they raise the rating level max from 5.9 to 7.9 (according to Beta 1 of 7)
