Noqw it runs all games at near perfect speed at max settings but the problem is it run everything else other than games pitifully slow. Booting up is the biggest hit. It boots to the desktop then spends the next 3-5mins processing "something," I don't know what it is processing and nothing in the process windows shows anything out of the ordinary and the performance window shows the cpus running between 1-5%. Turning on an mp3 or video takes anywhere from 10-60 seconds and start off lagging and jittering the frames. After awhile it catches up and runs smooth but even on my older setup it would boot any video no matter the size in under 5 seconds and run smooth right away.
Did I do something wrong? Could this simply be a confliction of hardware or drivers? Or might it be more serious such as defective hardware?
