Ok just finished a new build, and found the WIN7 Windows Experience Index rating. I ran it and come up with 5.9 which is limited by the lowest score of my HDD. The Processor Memory, and graphics = 7.3

I am rather suprized my HDD is so much lower as it is the latest Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB model WD1001FALS 1TB. What can I do to improve the performance of the HDD?

Yep, 'tis true. :huh:

Mine's rating a 5.8 (and it's just a basic 250GB Seagate). The physical limitations of the hard drive keep it from having a faster rate (although yours is probably spinning at 7200 RPM, mine's at 5400). Only thing that's faster is an SSD, like Bugeyed said. But they'll take a chunk out of your wallet! :huh:
