System seems slow

I built this system back in june and recently it seems to not be running up to par.

ie when I connect an sd card to it, it takes a long time to read the card, maybe over a minute on a 1 gig card. After I copy the card to the HD it can read it instantaneously.
seems to read very slow.

The same thing happens when I hook a digital camera up via USB.

What can I do to check the performance of my system and is there any setting I can adjust in the BIOS maybe. I know the cpu is not a good overclocker but maybe the FSB can be bumped up or something to boost her up a little bit.

If the problem occurs only when connecting a USB device, then your USB ports might be running at 12 Mbps instead of 480 Mbps. Is high speed enabled in the BIOS?
