I have recently build myself a frankenstein pc of scavenged old parts to make a usable machine for myself instead of an old prebuild machine (acer). I have build machines before but are kinda cheap so this is the first for myself.
The parts are:
ASUS P5N-E SLI
Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3.0
4gb ram (4*1gb)
160gb SSD (Intel SS DSA2M 160G2GC) (primariy system disc)
1TB Sata (WDC WD10 02FBYS-02A6B)
XFX Radeon 5770 1GB DDR5
WIN7 Home Pre 64BIT SP1
550W PSU (budget name can't remember)
Everything works ok and i am able to use the computer for most tasks
1. It takes a long time for the bios to start (about 30-1 min for asus post picture) (might be the Ram i haven't run memtest yet as it seems "everything" works okay)
2. If i'm playing a game (example . Diablo 3 high settings) and skyping and streaming some music or hearing music from winamp i will get lag/stutter. and the cpu will lie about 92-100%. I can limit this stutter by lowering graphics and alike. I did not have this problem on my prebuild vista computer (with 4gb ram, amd 6000+ and 5770 gfx) so i find i weird that i have it know.
The cpu Idles around 3-8% and Ram usage at 1.38
Temps are fine (idle 38-40c* load max 65c*)
3. It is not possible to view youtube and playflash game at the same time. it will be incredible slow (lagging) flash has been updated and unistalled and installed without effect... tried Firefox and chrome (chrome was better but not good)
Can anybody help me how to figure out these small but annoying problems
i clocked my cpu 10% (3.27 currently running okay) but i will need to get a better cooler as i'm still on stock (gotta take the mobo out no back opening)
i runs okay and my index has upgraded my "score" but i still get 50% usage on 1 video without gaming and right know it spikes to 79% while i write this.
having youtube running on firefox, hardware monitor and task manager open.
