Hello, I'am going to build a gaming computer. I really want 7,9 on the WEI so I can "brag." So the problem is... Will I get 7,9 on the ram with this ram Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 8GB Kit." So what will I get on the WEI with that ram?

You picked wrong benchmark to brag with.

Word to the Soda. WEI is a bad benchmark for performance, very arbitrary.

WEI is not worth the time to brag about and I will give a screen shot to prove it at the end. WEI is a general rating and can often be wrong not to mention is not a very good indicator of performance.

When i first did this build with 2x2 PC2 6400/800 MHz ram i got a 7.7 rating on Windows 7 since it has dropped to what I would actually believe a realistic performance value.

now my system is faster but the ram rating has dropped. I now have 7.5 across the board with the addition of the SSD.

I have 16gb 2133mhz and I max it out, there is faster RAM than mine available, so at some point it just arbitrarily says everything faster than this is a 7.9.

I would give that RAM a 6, happy?

Okay, FK my question then. Heres a new question. I was thinking to build a gaming computer but I don't know if I should take the gtx 780 or the gtx 770. But if I take the gtx 780 I have to take i5 + 8gb ram+ 120gb ssd.
Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced Nvidia
XFX ProSeries Core Edition 650W PSU
Intel® Core i7-4770 Processor
Gainward GeForce GTX 770 2GB PhysX CUDA
MSI B85M-G43, Socket-1150
Kingston DDR3 HyperX blu 1600MHz 16GB
SSD: Samsung SSD 840 Series 250GB
HDD: WD Desktop Green 1TB

And if I'am going for the gtx 780 I will take i5 4670, 120gb ssd, 8gb ram. What would be best?

I have 16gb 1600mhz and it gives me a 7.5 so no you will not get 7.9. Well you will probably not get 7.9.

The WEI scores are, in a word, meaningless bull****. If you were to get a 7.9 - keep in mind that no serious IT person or advanced gamer takes these scores seriously. Even relatively low - mid end hardware (like my GTX 660) can achieve the maximum 7.9 rating. If you want a real benchmark for your PC where you can get bragging rights, get 3D Mark. You can download it off Steam for $15.

for that kind of WEI, you're probably looking at 16 to 32GB 2 X 8GB or 4 X 8Gb) of CAS (1866 or 2133 RAM)

Personally I would do the i7 CPU for the added hyperthreading in other applications since most games will not make use of the hyperthreading. It would make for a more totally rounded machine. For gaming 8GB of ram is enough so you might be able to put the extra money towards a higher speed ram but if you are planing on using ram intensive programs then go for the 16GB.

Unless you're doing some heavy duty Photoshop or CS5 work you don't need that kind of RAM.

He doesn't want it for performance he wants it to brag about. To get 7.9 you will need faster RAM than 1600mhz and at least 16gb more than likely

Words completely fail me here. The WEI scores are not something to brag about - like I said even my GTX 660 can max out the graphics scores. And no serious IT person or advanced gamer takes these scores seriously. These scores mean nothing, I can't stress that enough. And really there isn't a hard drive or SSD out there that can max out the primary HD score. The Samsung 840 Pro probably comes closest but I'm guessing it scores about a 7.6.

I was kidding -.-! I just wanted to know if it could get 7,9 in the wei. I don't wanna brag or anything, I just want it :s. So just answer me without complying about something (what you are good at)

What will I get in the wei with this specs:
Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced Nvidia
XFX ProSeries Core Edition 650W PSU
Intel® Core i7-4770 Processor
Gainward GeForce GTX 770 2GB PhysX CUDA
MSI B85M-G43, Socket-1150
Kingston DDR3 HyperX blu 1600MHz 16GB
SSD: Samsung SSD 840 Series 250GB
HDD: WD Desktop Green 1TB

Please don't say anything about that the WEI sux because I know that. Just answer the question please -.-

But why though? Like I said if you want bragging rights, get 3D Mark. Or Prime 95. Or any of the hundreds of other benchmark programs out there that will give you a far better overall assessment of your system for free or not that much money.

Okay, than you can answer this. Is this good specs, or is it something I should change?

For gaming it's a lot of overkill. I would get a 4670K and a Z87 motherboard, that would be better than 4770 and B85. And that green hard drive is slow, get a 7200 RPM drive.

Unit, my Crucial M4 started at 7.9 immediately after I built, dropped to 5.9 for a while, and I re-ran the assessment while posting here and its back up to 7.9, although my i5 3570k dropped to 7.7 from 7.9 this time. All the rest of my score show 7.9, but I think this just backs up our point as to how useless WEI is.

I SAID -------- OKAY! All your comments has been about how useless the WEI is! I GET IT NOW -.-! You can more say its something I should change on my specs. And btw, I'am not going to overclock.
