Windows Experience Index Is Idiotic

I have a PC I use regularly and at the time I had a HD 5450 in it. Lower power, no noise, etc... Problem was I couldn't play anything much more stressing than Solitaire without it having a conniption. Dug through one of my "box of parts" and found an old 8800 GTS. Decided to throw it in the box so I could play a game here and there on the machine. I reran the Windows Experience Index and realized it's retarded.

So according to Windows the HD 5450 is only slight worse at "gaming graphics performance" than the 8800 GTS? I had to buy the 8800 GTS to play Bioshock (7600 GT wasn't cutting the mustard), I don't see the HD 5450 playing BIoshock at 640x480.
