It amazes me that my older computer seems snappier and quicker than the new one I replaced it with. The "new" one isn't exactly new either however its from the end of 07 to '08 and it's a Conroe Core2Duo E6400. The older one was from '04 - '05: AMD Athlon 64 3400+ Newcastle. And this just out performs the Core2Duo so far that I've observed.
