    Anybody have this setup?

    I'd like to know what the "Windows Experience Index" is on an Early 2008 Mac Pro - running Vista under VMWare Fusion...

    Somebody has to have this set up - I'm just wondering how bad the graphics numbers look.

    Bonus points if anyone's doing any kind of special disk striping for perf...

    Thanks!

    I've got the setup. I'm running Vista 64 bit, in Fusion, on an Early 2008 Mac Pro. It seems to run well, although a little slow with my current 2gb of ram (split in half when I run Fusion, so really 1gb on each OS).

    I'm not really sure how to give you any graphic numbers though.......is this subjective, or is there somewhere I can check for it?

    My only real disappointment (besides lack of ram) is that my AutoCad license keeps breaking when I try to run it in Fusion. It does run, just not consistently. Which is frustrating because I use it for work and Bootcamp defeats the purpose of my shiny new Mac.
