7.3 is a pretty dang good windows score. Like Mak said, your expectations are too high.

You could always OC your cpu and have extreme cooling, that will decrease load times, but is also expensive, time consuming and risky.

your expectations are what is wrong. Photoshop is a VERY intensive program. No matter what system you have running it takes time to load. It takes up to a minute cause of all the junk it has to load. No system, no amount of RAM will help. even a SSD will not help.
Well I don't know about it 'not helping'. Of COURSE getting an SSD will decrease the load time on the OS, not to mention Photoshop. In fact I can guarantee it.
Obviously it's not gonna make anything load instantly, but it DOES help.

Alright well maybe saying not help is not the correct term. But we are talking very little. It may shave off a couple of seconds here and there, but really if those couple of seconds make all that much of a difference then there isnt much that can be said.

A score of 7.3 is fantastic. Win7 can only go to 7.9 so that score is the lowest of all marks and that is only .6 lower than the top score. I really dont think that getting a SSD will make so much of a difference that it will get the results that are expected.

lol... I don't think my expectations where too high...
actually I figured it out. I had a configuration problem in my BIOS. My bios automatically set all my drives to IDE. I never changed that. So now I changed it to AHCI. HUGE, GIGANTIC DIFFERENCE. my hard drive now is at 7.7 . I know that doesn't sound like alot...but all the freezes, etc.. everything stopped.

It's just like I imagined it would be. smirk. [hair blowing in the wind while I am typing this....]

and now that I stopped look for a solution I can look at articles about OC'ing. Cause I am def interested to at least give it a try.
