    I have a A64 3700 SD on my system with a 9800 pro AGP card. My Windows load times are painfully long since the first time I booted up my rig yesterday. The BIOS screen stays there for like 20 secs - then windows takes longer to load than my older xp based cheap machine. This doesnt even have any accessory software or games loaded yet.
    I wonder whats going on? How do I fix it. I read somewhere that u need to tamper this bios a lot or even update it to get a fast rig. Can i get some instructions or pointers on that. This was my first build, so I am a little apprehensive. Oh and is there any know issues with xp pro and gaming etc.

    The details of my rig:

    A64 San Diego
    ASrock 939 Dual-sata2
    Antec TP 2.0 550W PSU
    ATI Radeon 9800 pro AGP
    Audigy 2 ZS
    WD 80 Gigs 7200rpm IDE
    OCZ performance 1 gig DDR2
    Windows xp pro
