    Its a pretty basic rating system, if you need more thorough analysis use something else.

    I think its fine because it shows you where your system is being held back. You wouldn't run a GTX 280 in a system with 1 gig of ram or a pentium d processor because you'd be bottlenecked.

    The rating system is something to show you what you should consider upgrading if you are going to upgrade a component.

    Rating system? WHO's rating system. If it's personal opinon, then .....

    (my point is, the poster needs to identify how the rating was obtained by reference to
    some url or explicit runtime program :) )

    The rating system was started by Microsoft and a bunch of computer manufacturers when VISTA was about to be released.

    It turned out to be full of holes and some manufacturers sued Microsoft because of their high failure rates and store returns. The rating system did not fairly and helpfully indicate that all rated computers could handle VISTA. A lot could not run VISTA properly, when their rating system said they could.

    i see

    so my guess is when i read the stats my cpu is 5.4

    my hard drive is a 5.6

    and the ram,video card are 5.9

    i dont think itll bottleneck

    if it does it usually happens on the desktop

    so the gaming is fine

    the bottleneck rarely happens

    so im not to worried yet

    im waiting for the new phenoms and athlon processors there commin out with

    any one heard any good or bad news with intels new chip
