Ive searched for a forum that i could post this question cause i cannot figure out why after i purchase a $2500CDN tower w/ nice options, and it seems to run slower than my mothers older computer. I know a little bit about computers and consider myself a gamer.
I do not know the "easy way" to posting computer specs but heres what i know:
AMD 64 Athalon 3700+ (Says its running @ 2.21GHZ... isnt that slow???
2GB OCZ Platinum Ram
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum Motherboard
ATI Radeon x1900xt gfx card
Sound Blaster Audigy2
Windows XP SP2
Thermaltake 400w Power supply
Hooked up to a BenQ 17" LCD w/ DVI input
Games seem to run fine, but just using basic windows seems to run slow?
Also, my internet seems to run ALOT slower on my computer than my Mothers computer. I am recieving the WIRED cable internet connection from my mothers router (which is a WIRELESS router) but since my computer (from what i can determine) does not pick up wireless connections cause i dont have a wireless card.
It is a Linksys BEFW11S4 2.4GHZ 802.11B
Do i need to provide more specs?
Can anyone determine problem for me?
