Is it normal or?
at stock maybe...it should at least be a little faster depending on the ram..what is your friends system? List his parts and we might be able to help better..
also, when loading games sooooo many things play apart in how long it will take to load..
if you have a 6600gt and he has a 7900gt, you may load faster with your 6600 than he will with his 7900gt...
the 6600gt will have lower visual settings and run in a lower res. b/c of the lower settings it may load games faster...The 7900gt will run games with higher visual settings and higher res. That will tax the system and the video card much more, causing it to load slower..
Benchmarks are the way to test.. Run these

use those to compare your systems...and you can compare to other people around here and other forums...most forums usually have listing of cpu's and scores..

there has been a lot of talk around this lately...
What i do know is not to trust TAT, as it can read higher and lower than actual temps..
CoreTemp is what most are using now, but mine at load reads 6C higher than actual temp when under load, but reads dead on at idle..ikd y...
The best way is reading the DTS... I will pm you on how to do this, later today..I am spending day with family so its hard to log on...
