Now its fully upto date with sp4 and dx9.0c, I did have trouble installing the soundmax driver because the chipset driver was dx7 and the sound driver was dx8.1.
So I popped in a copy of full spectrum warrior to get dx9 installed

What a difference from no servicepack to sp4, the os responds much faster and really feels similar to xp
