Re: 3200+ slower than a 2.0 ghz P4!?
Seriously, go get yourself a copy of Xp pro.
You'll see at least a 10 percent raise in performance due to all the crap that you removed. Also, make sure that you scan for virus's and adware.
good luck. Also, see if you can return the comp and go get a dell. Cause dell's aren't as bad as HP's. Dell's aren't amazing, they're just mediocre, but u will know that it's better than HP.
Athlon 64 3800+ @ 2.8 ghz.
Leadtek 6800 350/700 PCI express, different from before.
