Hey guys last night i got rid of an old sata one hdd and swoped out my 8800 ultra for a 9800 gtx xt editon and replaced the old hadd with a new sata 2 terabite one now the problem is that .

when i come to install vista on the new hdd after connecting everthing up and turrning it all on its take a long long time to install vista and then when vista finnaly installs around a hour later almost anything runns a lot slower than i should be as

i thought it might be to do with the fact that im using a sata 2 hard drive but i wouldnt know im still learning

any help with this would be amazing thanks

SATA 2 is supposed to be faster than plain old SATA (I think up to twice as fast.) If your board doesn't support SATA 2, then it should just revert back to SATA 1 speed...

How much RAM do you have? I've found that you really need at least 2GB to run Vista properly.
