Graphics52.2% is a reasonable 3D score (RTX 2060S = 100%). This GPU can handle the majority of recent games but it will struggle with resolutions greater than 1080p at ultra detail levels. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive26.9% is low SSD score. With a better SSD this system will boot faster, make applications more responsive and reduce IO wait times.
MemoryThe RAM on this system should be upgraded to at least 2GB although on 32bit systems 1GB will suffice as a bare minimum.
OS VersionWindows 10 is the most recent version of Windows, and the best to date in our opinion.
High background CPU (22%). High background CPU reduces benchmark accuracy. How to reduce background CPU.
