Ok, I just had a question for some of the experts out there that may be able to see why my computer is slower in loading games than my brothers. Please keep in mind these machines are running at stock speeds, but I am not sure why my load times are slower considering my components are all better other than the video card. Here are the specs.
Corsair PC3-1600 DDR3 3x2GB timings 9-9-9-24
Radeon XFX 4770 512MB (however I am replacing this card in a week with the 5770)
Maxtor MaXLine Pro 500 7H500F0 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" -Hard Drive
Please let me know what is causing his machine to load into games faster. I cannot think of anything other than perhaps the video card, but I didn't think that would affect load times. Much appreciated.
O, And if you have time please rate my build. Wondering if there is anything I could get for cheaper or suggestions on what I should have. Thanks

Corsair 2x3GB ~159.99 + 30 dollar mail in rebate
Final Total = $616.88 (after tax) minus 50 = 566.88
Total = 132.48 minus 40 rebate = 92.40
*Note I resold the 4770 for 80, and paid 60 extra for a XFX 5770. (159.99 - $20 BCB) = 139.99
Final Total = 92.40 - 80 = 12.40 + 59.99 = $72.39
Total Computer Cost = 639.36
I kept my harddrive and case from previous computer.
I do plan on CFing the 5770s in the future, just wondering if a 600W PSU can handle this with CF?
