Very slow PC (memory bus speed 55GHz)

Specs: Windows XP-pro SP3, 3GHz P4 /512KB
Please take a look at my Sandra reports.
THis is a new build and is very slow in and out of Windows.
Loading XP-pro took 7hrs.
I think there's a bottleneck.
The graphics card only works in the PCIex16 slot @x4mode (ie second slot)
In the first slot it goes into a loop at boot.
I've flashed the graphics bios and tried 3 different BIOS versions in the mobo.
I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

Have you considered that your crappy P4 is overheating & throttling? Who the heck builds a "new computer" with a P4 these days anyway? Geforce 7300LE graphics? Where did you get this stuff? And who considers SANDRA to be infallible? Your memory is listed as 8224% OC...lol. Get something that works.

The 1st thing you should do is check your CPU temp in the BIOS - is it considerably higher than 40C at idle? If it is, you've got a problem with your heatsink installation.

i agree, maybe it's overheating..

Thanks for your responses....Yes I will get a better CPU when
I'm satisfied this board works.
No it is not overheating.
GeForce 7300LE ....the strange thing is this only works in the 2nd PCIe slot
the one operating @ x4 mode.
I've a feeling this is the problem but surely it wouldn't make installing XP take 7hrs ?
Could the GPU or Graphics bios be causing a conflict with the RAM spd settings ?
I'd like to sort this hopeless rig because if I can't then I'd lose all confidence at building
something more expensive.
