hello,
i recently built a desktop , but its slower and not responsive as i thought
the boot time is more than 1 min although I disabled all startup programs
i use ASC and Glary utilities to make it preform better but it doesn't make much of a difference
my build is :
motherboard :ASUS P8B75 M LE
Processor: Intel i5-3570 CPU
Memory: kingston HX DDr3 1600mhz
Hard disk: WD 500gb
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Service Pack 1
DirectX Version: DirectX 11

Thanks for your help

It's the hard drive holding the system back. If you want the stupidly fast boot times you have to get a SSD. Otherwise a bit over a minute sounds right. That's where my i7 based computer is sitting with a 500GB WD caviar black that's got about 200 GB full.

its not about the boot, but the general use of the system

+1, your cpu is plenty fast to process anything you have to throw at it but your mechanical hdd will only read/write so fast. I just recently picked up an ssd finally and its made a world of a difference, I'll never build without one again. Realize that everything your cpu is processing comes from your hdd so its not just boot times. internet browsers, games, itunes, etc all has to come from there first.

I think you should reinstall the PC, maybe it will be only installation problem..
