I've often noticed some brand PC's perform better than in-house built ones, even if their configuration is less performant. I suppose the secret is better matching of the components, timings, etc.
I've recently built a PC based on a ASUS PH55-M MB + i3 540 CPU + 2 GB DDR3 + WS 500 GB SATA HDD. It sounds pretty well and it should replace an older Pentium IV based SQL server for a small network. Howeved it's performance is MUCH lower than the old PC The only issue it comes to my mind at the moment is the fact I am using ONE 2 GB module and I will try to use two 1 GB modules instead. I hope that will help but any other idea is wellcome
Thank you, Daniel

Hello and welcome to the forums Can you explain more about the slowdown ? in what tasks does your new PC feels slower ?
The machine stands as a MSDE Engine SQL server for an accounting application. I have changed the old Pentiun based machine with this one (no network changes) and the tasks on the work stations (viewing accounting info) perform much slower!
