    Just completed my first build. took 3 hours and i crapped myself all the way through.

    I installed windows 7, and decided to check what my system was rated just for fun, when the score came back it said that the GPU rating was 1.0. Does this mean my graphics card is not recognised (havent updated any drivers yet)

    Specs are
    i5 2500k
    8gb Corsair XMS 3
    750W Corsair PSU
    MSI GTX 560 Twin Frozer

    The Card is on, the fans are spinning. (not sure if it is supposed to have lights or what not)

    Download the latest graphic driver from Nvidia and re-run test.

    I would load the drivers for your gpu. More than likely the issue

    Believe me I been there you will keep getting 1.0 in WEI until you download the latest drivers. It only takes few minutes to do it..

    Your GPU is not recognized at the moment by Win7 (too new).
    Basically Windows Update probably failed to find your drivers. Go on Nvidia website, and get the latest drivers as Siwini and Boff_In said.

    Once you do and installed it, restart your computer and your should be ready.
    You should also have Aero enabled by that point, or be able to enable it (transparency on your windows, and task bar).

    I hope that it is a driver issue and you can relax about the build ;)

    Windows update found the drivers for my MSI 560 Twin Frozr.

    Get your update on!

    I got 7.9 for my gaming graphics after the drivers were installed, it made me happy.
