ok chris nice thought but i have tried both on stock drivers from the c.d and both on latest drivers downloaded from the internet.
i wouldnt say its running really slow in fact it is running really fast,
heres a few things i have considered.
a faulty core on the processor. have monitored this on CTRL ALT DEL performance all cores seem normal between 4 and 15% while running second life.
i have considered heat but thats fine,
i have also noticed that after the computer has been on a long time like 4 hours or so then the second life performance increases.
and i may have been a little un accurate when i said identical,
Processor = Same
RAM = Same
Motherboard = Same
Hardrive = Same
Case = Same
PSU = Different ???
is it possible seeing as i did actually go with a very cheap power supply that its not supplying enough power ???? i do intend in swapping them on monday but im a little busy over the weekend.
and possibly (not sure if this is right) but when the computer first starts up the computer takes alot of juice to get everything running but after a while of being on its sort of got everything running and is "idle" so its consuming less power so it runs ok ?
its some 500Watt Casecom PSU.
i realise 500Watts is enough but if its a cheap PSU it could be faulty or extremely unefficient.
anyways nice to hear from you guys and freestyle and cele i will try some bench's but again it probably wont be until monday as im a busy man.
