How is it underperforming? games? benchmarks? internet surfing? It seems like a nice PC, but yea, "underperforming" is too vague of a term.

I'd do the standard system maintenance (defragging, searching for viruses, updating windows, uninstalling software you don't use, maybe even reinstalling windows from scratch), that boosts a lot of the systyem performance.

I'd also recommend you to add the system specs to your signature

It should be mentioned that my ram DDR2 800MHz

Indeed I have, but it seems as though I couldn't get it as high as other reports, my FSB basically refuses to exceed 325, which is what it's at. Games are where I mostly experience slow-down I guess. I recently reinstalled so Windows is fresh. Oblivion plays all right, oddly, Bioshock rarely beats 20FPS anywhere. Spore runs smooth, and thats what I've been playing lately.
