I have two basically identical machines. Same CPU; i7-2600k, same GPU; GTX 560 Ti FPB. Both using 128 GB SSD drives (one Samsung, one Crucial). Only difference is the motherboards. One is the ASRock Z77 Extreme4, the other is the Saberooth Z77.

I recently added the GTX560 Ti to the Sabertooth. I went with a second 560 and figured later on down the road if I need to upgrade video, I could get the next gen when prices fall and then SLI the 560's in one of the machines. My WEI scores for the ASRock machine are 7.8, 7.9, 7.8, 7.8, 7.9. That's CPU, RAM, both video and finally SSD.

I ran WEI after installing the 560 in the sabertooth and my initial run got 7.2 for both videos. I was perplexed really. I turned off Virtual MVP on that machine and my next run got the WEI video scores to both being at 7.8. The odd thing is that on the ASRock machine, Virutal MVP is enabled and still gets 7.8

it could just be the way the os reads/scores the components? esp with mvp enabled/disabled,i wouldnt worry too much on wei scores aslong as it performs well in games ect thats all that matters
