My System Specs

Default My new build!

I just finished building my PC
Got myself a
ASUS P8Z68-v Gen 3
Intel i7 2600k
Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz 8 Gb RAM
EVGA GTX 580
Crucial M4 128Gb

My windows experience index numbers are:
Processor 7.7
RAM 7.9
Graphics 7.9
Primary HD: 7.9

Do these look normal?
Is really the CPU the weakest link in my system?

I will be overclocking. But will go watercooling first....

Yep don't rely on WEI at all: there's a reason why all software still lists system requirements as minimal hardware and not WEI numbers
If you want to raise those numbers just find the registry hack to make them all listed as 10 and rely on actual performance to rate how well you system performs for you.
