For some reason I feel that my system should be a lot snappier than it is right now. I can't tell exactly what the components are but here's a general idea: 2.4GHz P4 w/ HT 512MB DDR 333MHz GeForce FX 5200 WD 80GB IDE HDD Windows XP installed with all startups disabled. The motherboard I can't name for the life of me, it's old purple and feels like it's going to give up on me any moment now. I've used P4's before but never one that's felt this laggy. Is something severely bottlenecking the system or am I just too accustomed to i7's and Phenom II's? Hell even my old Athlon X2 felt a crapload faster. Now before you ask why I'm running this antique, I'll tell you! I'm in the middle of a desktop>laptop transition and this is the only available system I have in my house that is complete. I can spend $20 on a cheap Athlon X2 to get the other spare computer running... hey I think I will!
