    Default graphics cards and performance stats in windows 8

    Hello everyone,
    Following recent problems with on-board nvidia graphics, plus not being a gamer I purchased a quite cheap but nevertheless ATI Radeon HD5450 card which certainly is more modern than my Nvidia onboard one on my asrock motherboard. It has 1 gig of memory so the mem stats improved on the windows performance but my graphics only went up from 3. something to 4.3 which I was quite surprised at. What, WHAT does windows 8 want? It certainly I thought should have rated higher than that but at least it does not keep saying it has encountered a problem as restarted successfully!

    I am happy with it but thought it deserved better. Anyone knows what windows 8 really expects as decent?

    Have you updated the driver after installing the new graphics cards? Try to update the driver to test if the performance would be better.

    From my point of view, to have 7+ score you need something alike GTX 670 (7.9 score on Windows 7).
