Default Re: Major System Upgrade

BTW, if you really want to flex the muscle of the WEI. Install windows 8.1 and then install this:

Windows 8 vs. 8.1 for a wei are somewhat different. Windows 8 is much more strict on it's wei giving a gtx 680 and a gtx 760 the same score of 8.1. Windows 8.1 is a loosened quite much where a gtx 760 now scores 8.3 by itself.

for Windows 8.1 on the chris pc wei (which just takes the dos like text based scores still kept by windows although no longer graphically shown) I get the following on the haswell system in my sig:

cpu 8.3
memory 8.3
gpu 8.3
hard drive 7.7

and if your worried about start menu's, install this (it skips the metro poop and goes directly to desktop giving back the windows 7 feel that everyone enjoys):

to compare, this is what ivb (my brothers system gives on a windows 8 wei)

cpu 8.0
ram 8.0
gpu 8.1
hard drive 7.9
gigabyte g1.sniper 5 mb, 8gb ddr3-1866 mhz ram in dual channel,intel core i7 4790 3.6 ghz quad core cpu, asus gtx 780 3gb vc,OCZ vector 150 240 gb ssd x 2 in raid 0 (intel raid),antec hcg-850 850 watt 80 plus bronze psu,corsair carbide 500r white case,pioneer bdr-208 15x bluray writer, steelseries 6gv2 keyboard ,acer gv215hv 21.5 inch 1080p lcd monitor, zalman eclipse 8200dpi mouse,xbox 360 wired controller for windows,kingston 8gb usb 2.0 flash drive,windows 8.1 64 bit,creative labs sound blaster zxr pci-e sc,logitech s120 2.0 speakers

I'd rather walk with God in the Dark than shine in the light alone.
