The test system was built from scratch, a format of the hard drive was performed (NTFS) and then Windows 7 was installed. Following the completion of the installation, the video drivers were installed. All windows updates were then installed as were the latest builds of the benchmarking tools. Finally, where appropriate the hard drives were de-fragmented. For each test, the video drivers were set to default quality/optimizations (unless otherwise stated).
