Re: Need Help Badly
Well, XP does eat up more RAM and CPU, but still your hardware should
be able to run that...
The only thing I see that would be a bottleneck would be the processor, but that still looks to be pretty decent. Just about all that I would normally recommend, you've already tried. When did you get the X1600? All I really have left to say is clean the dust out of the inside of your computer, especially on all of the fans. Pay close attention to your CPU fan, getting the dust off. You might want to get some software to check the temperatures first; it may not even be overheating. But if the processor is overheating, I think the P4's downclock some so they don't produce as much heat. So that's a potential problem; other than that, I don't know what to do. Good luck.

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.
