New 600gb WD Velociraptor

Hello

I have a couple questions. I just built my computer yesterday and ran the Performance Rating Tool in Win 7 and I received

CPU - 7.5
RAM - 7.5
Graphics - 7.4
Gaming Graphics 7.4
Primary Hard Disk 5.9

First question - Why is my Primary Hard Disk so low compared to the other parts with the new WD Velociraptor which is the fastest Raptor drive you can get?

Second question - Could someone tell me what is a good benchmark program to test my CPU, RAM, HD ect.?

Thanks.

  1. 5.9 is pretty much the highest you'll get with a standard platter based hard drive.
    SSDs might go higher. Haven't got one to test. Don't worry about it.

    As for benchmark software, I don't use any.
  2. This page has a good many of the more popular benchmarks , plus some demos to show off your new computer.
