Ok, I finished my new build, and I got it working, windows loads etc etc. After my first boot into WinXp Proffessional SP/2, I loaded my Mobo driver CD and it installed the chipset drivers. I then loaded my Vid card CD and loaded the Nvidia drivers. What I need to know now, is what else do I need to do? This is the first time I have ever loaded a system, or OS for that matter, from scratch. It seems like windows is running Way slower than it should be, almost as if I was on 256mb of ram or something. I am installing my ISP software right now and will have acces to direct driver downloads. Any suggestions on what I should do next?
