The focus of this project is the technology, i.e. get it to work. Only the simplest graphic design needed to show functionality is required.

I want a web site running on the www.one.com web hotel that automatically (as far as possible) collects end users HW config and WEI (Windows Experience Index).

A user who has registered and provided his HW data is qualified to search/browse HW data for all other reported systems.

The collected data should be browsable for qualified users by make/model of computer and CPU, as well as WEI. All collected information on a specific system shall be displayed when it is selected from the browsing tree/catalog or search results.

It is important that the php code and mySQL data base are well documented for further development.

A user should be able to report data from more than one computer.

Information to be collected and stored:

– computer manufacturer
– computer model
– computer manufacturers partnumber or equivalent
– CPU manufacturer
– CPU model
– CPU clock speed
– FSB speed
– Installed RAM
– max RAM
– Graphics adapter manufacturer
– Graphics adapter model
– Graphics adapter manufacturers partnumber or equivalent
– Graphics adapter video memory
– Graphics adapter supports Direct3D 9, DirectX 9, and WDDM 9 y/n (for each)?
– Hard disk size
– Hard disk bandwidth (if possible)
– Hard disk type (IDE/ATA…)
– laptop/stationary…
– monitor size
– Windows Experience Index and subindecies (manually entered if necessary)

The website should be written in css/html/php, and use a MySQL database. I guess an activeX control or java-something will be needed too for the info collection.

As much as possible of the data collection should be done without user interaction, but if a discrepancy is found when comparing manufacturer partnumber to an already registered system the user should be asked if the scanned/reported data really is accurate. Any user-entered data should be "spell checked" against the data base in order to maintain data integrity.

The purpose of the site is to build a data base of WEI for computers systems of different kinds.

Any text that the user sees must be stored separately so it can be translated in to other languages.
