Building the computer was easy and everything went fine. However there seems to be a problem. Lets say I'm installing GTA IV, Microsoft offive, or extracting a large rar file, the whole computer seems to grind to a halt. My mouse lags, entering text lags and opening ANYTHING from iTunes to wordpad can take up to 10 minutes.
Its a mystery and really frustrating. I've updated all drivers, reformated 4 times, tried 2 different sata drives and still the problem remains. I've also removed the 3rd DDR3 stick and just left it in dual channel 4gig. Still get issues. Yet to clarify, booting isnt any longer than normal, when I managed to run GTA IV it runs fine. Does anything have any clues to this?
Its maddening since I spent so much on this and yet my old AMD system could handle this alot better.
Running windows 7 x64
It's slow because those processes stress your hard drive, usually XP and Vista leave a bit of hard drive work capacity so you can move your mouse and such, so will Windows 7 when it gets released. You are probably experiencing a beta bug because you're running a beta OS.
If we are talking RTM then thats the version I am using.
I've tried BIOS updates, driver updates, multiple reformats and still the problem persists. £850 on all this gear and I feel the system is slower
