Windows Experice Index and Vista Rating

My machine vista rating. so far so good ?

What is the Windows Experience Index?

The Windows Experience Index measures the capability of your computer's hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your computer will perform better and faster than a computer with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.

Each hardware component receives an individual subscore. Your computer's base score is determined by the lowest subscore. For example, if the lowest subscore of an individual hardware component is 2.6, then the base score is 2.6. The base score is not an average of the combined subscores.

You can use the base score to confidently buy programs and other software that are matched to your computer's base score. For example, if your computer has a base score of 3.3, then you can confidently purchase any software designed for this version of Windows that requires a computer with a base score of 3 or lower.

Introducing My Medium Budget Desktop PC

08 Dec 2007, I got my new AMD machine assembled. Hoooray!
( of cause, my wallet shrink-ed too )

This few weeks trying to play around with it, test its performance and tweaking it.

Actually it is just a medium budget machine. ( no $$ le )

My aim is to get me back to 3D work, multimedia work, and able to use VS2008 & Vista Aero.
Besides, able to play 3D games (hope I still got time for it ) and just be my musice juke box.

Oooo ya.. one more challenge for my machine is to able run P2P over 24 hours if needed.
( so pity for my machine).
Because Multimedia Rendering might need to on it over the night.

Yes, here we go! Introducing my processor.

( only afford to buy a mid-range processor >_<)

( RAM 1 Gig 667mhz X2 - Kingston)

( PSU Cooler Master 460Watt - The sales guy says able to support for 24 hours, sure?)

( MSI, Taiwan. Midrange Motherboard K9N able to support AMD+ processor for future )

( Yahoo0! Nice 19" Samsung LCD 961bw wide screen )

(Purchased Genuine Version of Kaspersky Antivirus Suite for bundle and is RM20 only!)

( Inside my new CPU )

( Midrange budget Graphic Card - China Brand Colorful GF8600GT )
( With Fan one.. but still not so noisy, may be still new ha ha ha )
( Heard some of the friends say, using AMD better combination is ATI,is it true ? But mine is...)

( ATX cheap cheap casing lor - got 6 usb and front panel jet ( I like !) )

So... Come to the end. The most wanted question?

How much it cost me ?

Answer: RM 1400 ( only machine ) + RM 675 ( LCD )
