I just recently picked up a dell dimension xps gen 5. Its p4 D 3.0 ghz dual core processor. 1 gig of ram at 667 mhz, 250 gb hd, radeon x850 xt platinum edition, and a creative audigy zs. My old rig was a 2.53 ghz p4 w/ a gig of ram and radeon 9800 pro w/ 80 gig hd and it seems to multitask far better than my new rig. Both rigs are from dell. I don't know why my new rig doesn't multitask well ontop of the fact that it takes a while to load firefox and other programs my old system could load faster. I'd appreciate any help, thanks all.
