p5q deluxe mobo
4 gigs ddr2 ram
300 gig velociraptor main os drive
and 4 640 drives in RAID 5 using a 3ware 9650SE SATA RAID card
comparing to my brothers computer which has an AMD Phenom II X3, 4850 videocard, 4 gigs ddr3 ram, MSI 770 mobo and 1 WD 750gb Caviar Black hardrive.
my system seems kinda laggy when compared to his. like when browsing through the OS and what not, it seems kinda sluggish and not as fast compared to his. Do you think by having raid 5 array is lagging my system at all?
i feel like my system should be on par at the very least if not faster because of the velociraptor
both windows 7. and i dont even have security software yet....bad idea i know but i never download viruses...im pretty careful. And apparently I do. Do you know if checking the 2nd box would improve performance at all? I mean, I DO have a battery backup attached to the raid card.
