so I have built my own computer and have had it for almost exactly a year now, in my opinion I should not be experiencing the problems I currently am. To stat of I will give a brief summary of my system;
Motherboard -Asus Sabertooth 990Fx
CPU -AMD FX8150 *core processor
SSD -Corsair 120Gb
HDD -2 x Seagate Barracuda 2Tb 7200rpm
Graphics -Assus Nvidia Ge Force GTX 560 Direct II 950 MGhz
Memory -16Gb GSkillz 1600 MGhz DDR3
other than that I don't think the optical drive or power supply play an issue in this problem.
So it has started out slow but more and more I am experiencing greater and greater "lag" when going through different applications. Ex; I will click a video file and it will take 30 seconds (not an exaggeration) for VLC to open, or I open a new tab in chrome and it will take 30 seconds for it to "connect" to a site, once connected however I can navigate through the site without problem.
I have tried a great many of things from using about 8 different virus scanners and cache emptying software to creating a ram disk and everything in between. To list a few: Increasing system cache, changing the setting of the hard drives in bios, and deleting sketchy programs
So as you can see I think my system is pretty good and really don't thing that I should be having these problems, I would really appreciate any help really and thank you for even just reading my post considering how you got this far.
