OK. So my cpu has a fsb of 1066mhz, my ram is 800mhz (ddr2) and the WEI score for both is the same, 7.1. I think the real bottleneck in my system is the hd, that's only 5.9. Would it be worth getting faster ram (1066mhz) or should I save my money and get an ssd?

An SSD would be a better improvement (don't rely on WEI score..)

WEI is useless, im in raid 0 with 380mb/s reads/writes and i still have a 5.9 WEI score for HD

Even if you do a RAID0 with HDDs, you can't surpass 5.9 on WEI unless you get SSDs.
