Default Added 1 Gig of Ram and CPU is SLOWER!?

Hey Everyone!

I'm new to the forum and I need a little help. I recently reformatted my hard drive and added an additional 1 gig of ram to increase performance. Strangely, my computer runs MUCH slower than before.

So I ran Geekbench 2.0 and got an overall Geekbench score of 666 (Yes, I think its the work of the devil at this point). I checked my score against other scores submitted by other users with my exact same setup who got scores of 1,643! Even computers with slower CPU's and less RAM are scoring better than mine.

I'll post my hardware profile and score below along with scores from others who outperformed my computer with nearly the exact same setup. If anyone can help me I would GREATLY appreciate it. If you need other diagnostic scores I'll be more than happy to post them.

Cheers!
