Q6600 running slow - WHY?
So i recently purchased the Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q6600 and the Intel® Desktop Board DG33TL for my existing machine. It was previously running a Intel Dual Core processor (not sure the exact model) with 3GB of memory (2GB Corsair DDR2 PC5300 Kit and 1GB of cheap DDR2 PC4200). I had Vista Ultimate as the OS. The computer at the time ran great no problems at all. Well after installing the new MoBo and CPU, Reformatting the Hard drive, using only the Corsair Memory and installing all the correct drivers and performing updates my computer is actually booting slower, accessing files slower and running overall slower. I know that with a decrease in the amount of memory there was going to be a slight decrease in performance but this is completely unacceptable. I am literate in computers but not a wiz by any means. if anyone has any tips, suggestions, or info please let me know cause i am just about to say done with it and go back to the previous setup.
