Games are slow to open

Specs are
CPU: AMD Phenom x4 820 @ 3.3ghz
RAM: 4GB gskill ripjaws ddr3 1333
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD5850 xtreme
PSU: Rosewill Green Series 530w
HD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

When I click to open a game it takes about 10 seconds to open then sometimes it takes a little longer to actually load it like black ops the screen will go black for another 10 seconds then it will go to the main menu. I just installed WC3 and it does it with this game as well.. What would cause this?

  1. Sounds normal to me. Games take time to load from a HD.
  2. I just upgraded from a dual core amd x2 250 @ 3.5ghz, 2gb's of ram and a IDE hd and THAT set up was faster than this one... I dunno...
  3. my hd was only 6% fragmented but I went ahead and defragged and still it takes a long time... I timed how long black ops stays on the black screen before opening and it was 21 seconds!!!!!!!!!!!!! 21 seconds of just black screen...
