Slowwwww comp plz help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello!
New to the forum.
I need help with my comp it literally take 5 1/2 minutes to start and connect to lan router

asus p5n-e q6600
8800 gts
3Gb ram 800mHz
vista ultimate 32bit
nzxt 800
WD 500 GB HD

when the comp was new it would start fast and run fast. now its slow. I tried remove almost all start up prog

I play alot of starcraft 2 and on min settings the comp gets down to 6 fps on 4v4 games.

My plan is either to get a new:
asus mother
i7 950
evga SC gtx 460
win 7
another HD with raid
and all the same ram (prolly 6-12 GB at 1333mhz)

or:
go to cyper power pc and build a new one with similar specs

any advice

How long since you last reformatted Windows? Is the hard drive getting full, need to defrag?

That looks like a decent upgrade you listed below. It will be much more fun to build it yourself, and I imagine cheaper.. If you post a budget someone can probably put something together for you.

I'd say it's either your hard drive or you ram, your ram is kinda slow
and 8800 is like the bare minimum for SC2 btw
and if your going to build a new one, get an ssd if your worried about boot times

Check the status of your hard drives health by running the western digtal SMART checker, RMA it if it's broken.

If it's fine, back up your data, format, and install fresh windows onto it.

should fix the problem.

Build your own next time. It's much cheaper and easier than you think.

Grab a 32GB SSD and do an install on that.

Ccleaner, and Defraggler. Download these programs and run them, completely free and used in PC mags so 100% safe. Also reformats etc if no improvement.
