I just finished my first build and fired it up and all is great, except for the "Graphics: Desktop performance for Windows Aero". I scored a 1.0.

I'm running an i7 2600K, ASUS Z68 Pro, MSI GTX 560ti, Corsair AX750 PSU, Corsair Vengeance 8gb RAM, Crucial SSD Boot Drive, F3 Spinpoint 1TB Storage HDD

What am I missing here? Every other score is 7.6 or greater.

It sounds to me like Windows doesn't have a driver for your video card and is running in the default XGA mode. I'd check your driver version and perhaps download and install the latest driver from the manufacturer's web site.

Try re-installing the video drivers.

This could be a quirk of the Windows performance test. Try to run Windows Update (if you have not yet), and see if this fixes things when you re-run the tests. If you are actually using the nVidia drivers, you don't really have an issue.

I have seen people with issues running the 3D testing when it errors out, although there is nothing wrong with the system aside from that.

If it never goes past 1, don't worry about it. If your other programs run great, and Aero actually works, no biggie if the benchmark can't complete properly.
