Am curious, am half way through 1st ever build, just got graphics card and cable tidy to do, but to ensure all else is working have installed windows 7 and updated it. I am using sandisk 128gb ssd as primary drive and windows experience score and disk transfer rate is 7.5, I would have thaught it would have been max. 7.9 Is this correct? and if so who can get 7.9

Check that it's configured to AHCI mode in the BIOS, rather than IDE. This will ensure maximum performance.

Note: if you have installed the OS while it's in IDE mode, a bit of registry editing may be required. A quick Google should bring up some instructions.

I don't understand much about ACHI and IDE and have checked in BIOS and it does say AHCI (good job as after reading google I would have just left it anyway) Thx for responses 7.5 score it will remain, I just thaught it would have been max 7.9 with an ssd

It's not always 7.9 with an SSD, there are other factors that affect the score. These include sata speed, motherboard port speeds, chipset, in-OS optimization. I wouldn't worry too much about the WEI score anyway - it's certainly not the most accurate benchmarking tool in the world.
