Asus P5G41T-M/USB Mbo, 2x2GB DDR3 Corsair, Intel E6500 2.93GHz cpu, Samsung 500GB Sata, Gainsward 8400GS 512MB video card
Brand new pc, Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit os.
After full installation, I got WEI index as follows
Cpu - 6.3
Ram - 6.3
Graphics - 3.6
Games etc- 5.4
Disk - 5.9
Overall index 3.6, which seems rather low. Is there anything to raise index to something like 5.3.Any help will be appreciated.

If you aren't experiencing any problems, then don't even worry about it ...it's just a number :wink:

Your Windows Experience Index is based on the lowest score eg: your Graphics - 3.6 the only way to change it is by getting a better graphics card then your score would become whatever the low Score in your system is ,it's really just a tool to gauge hardware from one piece to another to help you upgrade if you desire. If your system is working fine for you like Jacee said don't pay any attention to it. Cheers
