It sound very sweet to me should have no problems.Your harddrive could be 7200 rpm but no a big issue.Just do the basics ya know defrag/Disk clean up also make sure you havn't filled your harddrive to much 80gb could be filled alot with games and video files etc.

Sounds ok to me too - as Geforceboy said the Hard Drive could be 7200 but you'd probably never notice anyway.

Default Just to make sure

Run Winbench if you have it and compare to others that are posted. Just by looking at your specs I would suspect that you should be somewhere in the 9000 - 12000 on WinBench 2001SE.

Also I have three suggestions.

1. Make sure your harddrive is hooked up to the motherboard by-its-self. Do not run a CD-ROM, ZIP or any other IDE device on the same cable as the harddrive.

2. If you surf a lot, then if your experiencing slow-downs. I suggest that you "clean" your files with Spybot - Search & Destroy.

And lastly,

3. Run defrag three times. Shut down and power off between each defrag process. That should help your speed and response time a little better.

----My system----
CPU: P4 3.06 533FSB
Mobo: Soyo Dragon Ultra Platinum Edition
RAM: 512MB DDR 400
Graphic card: Radeon 9800 Pro
OS: Windows XP Pro
WinBench2001SE = 13778
WinBench2003 = 5470

Default Lord ---talking to me?

This is my third or fourth time here. I just look around to find ideas for overclocking and such.

But I decided to post and see what happens. This seems to be a very good forum, so I think I will check in a few times a week and give my two cents worth.

Plus work is boring today. Working on my database until its time to go home.

LOL! Cool; what sort of Database are you doing? Dare I ask whether you're really 70?

Lord,

Not 70. Just a 30 year old who hobbies are computers and gaming. I work in the manufacturing field, so I was doing some database programming to collect data and print reports to make my life easier.

I've been in computers since I was 10. When I saved my allowance to buy a Pineapple. That was an Apple ][+ knock-off that you had to assemble. I bought it for $750 with a green 14" monitor. It was a screamer with 64K memory and two single sided floppy drives. From that day I was hooked. I have ripped apart computer left and right since that day. I am fairly good at problem solving and making things better.

I have even tried to sell my skills and made a few bucks. But it is much better and more enjoyable to do it as a hobby, instead of having someone tell you what to do and dealing with non-computer educated people.

I have personal friends at Intel, nVidia and AMD. I have even been a beta-tester for AMD on the K6-2 300MHz chip. That was fun!

Lol! I meant Bluto for some strange reason - bit weird!

Lol! The early years, how I wish I had been there for that! According to a quote by Bill Gates '658Kb should be enough for anybody,' Bill Gates. I have about 500,000 times that at the moment!

Lol! I bet it was - that was a crap Processor! I brought a 450Mhz Intel instead at the time. That was when I had heard rumours of the possiblity of Internet and them having a 1Ghz Processor Working for 3 seconds before it burnt out. My dad would say; What! Thats like a Microwave! Dangerous! You'd never see one like that in my house! We now have 3 at least twice as powerful as that! Funny world.

What are you expecting ? And what seems wrong ? That might get you some better answers.

Oh my,is that right ?
As far as surfing,try pcpitstop.com/auto fix.
I get all checkered flags,will you ?
Remove all junk files and know where they are located.Let me know if you want to know where.
Use Ad-Aware 6 (free) once a week.
Scandisk once a week,
Defrag (once)once a week.
You should do a cold boot in less than 10 seconds.95% cpu left
Now that performance !
Run C:\WINDOWS\RSRCMTR.EXE
Whats yours ???
