Question about PC Desktops
ASUS P5B-V motherboard, Intel E6600 dual core duo cpu & 4Gb kingston memory. Maxtor 320Gb SATA hard drive.Win XP Pro,& AVG software. This machine (loaded 4 times now) is much slower than my old Pentium 4 3,2Ghz ASUS Terminator T2. It has identical software loaded but just lags when opening Outlook, my computer, internet etc. Even my Celeron 1.7 lappy is quicker. I have checked the cpu with passmark. Also done a full load check on the system. All passes ok. I reckon i should go & buy a Pentium 2 3.8 cpu. Can you recommend the correct model number that will fit the LGA 775 socket & is compatable with the G965 express chipset on the ASUS P5B-V. I am really getting depressed.
You can buy a 3.02 pentium 4 processor and need not change any thing else. On the other hand try changing your hard disk with a one with smaller capacity such as 80 GB make it primary with the windows partition not exceeding 15 GB . Make this drive (80 GB )primary and other one secondary.Increase the virtual memory size of your system and for sure you wont need to buy any thing or be depressed anymore.
