|I am in desperate need of some of some expert advice/guidance. I recently built what I thought would be a killer system:|
Thermatlake Xaser VI Full-T Case Blk w/Mesh Side
PC Power & Cooling Turbo Cool 860w PSU Black
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 2.66Ghz 6MB 1333FSB CPU
EVGA nforce 780i SLI Socket 775 Motherboard
EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB PCIe
Corsair XMS2 4096MB PC8500 DDR2 1066MHz (2x2048)
Installed XP Home 32 bit, SP 02 and fired the beast up. Ran good first turn on. Installed MacAfee virus protection suite, iTunes down load program, WinASO reg cleaner, and SpyBot. All is good until I try to install a game or down load from iTunes or the Web. This thing is slow as Molasses in an Alaskan Winter!! Tried tweaking the Reg, no help. Deselected non essential start up programs, no help. Monitored CPU while downloading Demo from Wed site, installing game, running Reg Cleaner, SpyBot cleaner, file from iTunes, and had MacFee running in background. Highest CPU usage I got was 26%, still snail slow. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong are greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking your time to help me.
