  1. My scores are as such:

    Processor: 7.5
    Memory (RAM): 7.5
    Graphics: 7.4
    Gaming Graphics: 7.4
    Primary hard disk: 5.9

    I have SATA HDDs in my computer. Does anyone know how I can increase this rate if it is indeed slow? Or is this average? Any information or possibly a LMGTFY.. lol any pointers here accepted. Much appreciation in advance!

    More information if it helps:
    Asus P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard
    I have 4 HDDs set up. Two are in RAID0 setup. The rest have no RAID setup.

    5.9 is top of the line for platter drives that are not in a raid configuration.

    Okay, so in other words could you say that an SSD would give me a higher number, or rather more importantly higher transfer speeds?
