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.

well, i hate to say it but, maybe because it's intel, and a dell. that is about the same response everyone will give you here at cf. but, the new system should crush your old one. i don't know what it could be.

thank you all for the advice. i was seriously considering about returning the dell because it hasn't been 30 days yet. maybe you are right about the software that dell may load with the computer. in fact, i remember reformating my old dell and reinstalling the drivers myself and after that it ran much smoother and faster. i also do have adaware. i was thinking about making my own rig, but i got a pretty good deal on the dell, seeing on how it was 37% off ontop of E-coupons. it was an offer i couldn't refuse, but now i wonder if I could've refused it.
