Hello world! :D 

I just built my first computer, well changed almost everything in my old system. The system I had wasn't good enough for me, so I wished for some computer parts for Christmas, and I got it! So I built the computer parts, and my system is obviously running. Otherwise I wouldn't been posting here.

I got new graphics card, a new motherboard, and a processor. They were so beautiful, in the packages. I removed my old parts and replaced with the new ones. It was pretty "easy", used my manual pretty much, and I got it all finished. started it and installed all drivers and re-installed and formatted my HDD. Everything seems to work fine. But all benchmarks told me else. I got not as I expected and, not too much better than the old rig.

I compared with my friends computer and he won over me with something about 15-20 fps. and the score were obviously higher.

When I turn my computer on, and it has started some of the application, its easily freezes and explorer.exe stop easily. Its irritating. :D 

So long story short:

My computer isn't as good as I hoped for, or thought. Is there reasons for it? Have I done something horrible wrong? Are there anything i've missed? etc...

Hi Prebb,
The 3570K and GTX670 should rock!
Excellent CPU and vidcard.
It is difficult to do a motherboard transplant including vidcard and CPU, within the same OS.
In the old days, you often had to reinstall a fresh OS since you were likely to encounter a BSOD trying to start the new system.
So, you installed new Intel chipset drivers, right?
Since you're saying it's cranky and freezes-up from time to time, I'm pretty sure you'd be better off with a fresh OS install - I know; easier said than done, right?
Heheh...
But the fact that your performance seems lacklustre is decisive.
I reinstall my OS maybe once/year.
It's always very much snappier and faster.
Anyway - new chipset drivers (a lot of people are unaware) plus you're probably going to have a viciously fragged harddisk since your upgrade.
Try the latest Defraggler (just do the Quick Defrag at first).
Reinstall is a big job, but you know, it's likely to solve your issues.
Also; you didn't specify which 3DMark you are running... (there are many).
Regards
!
