Ok. I have built a new computer with everything new, except the HDD, and the PCI video card. 2.66ghz P4 CPU ECS P4VXASD2+ MOBO 1 gig of Kingston SDRAM 512 x 2 20 gig HDD ExcelStor VisionTek Extasy ATI 9100 128mb PCI video card Well, I went to install Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, and it asked me which if I wanted to install over XP. I said yes. It asked me to format. I did a quick format on NTFS. It installed fine. I boot up, install all of the correct drivers. Once it was all installed, and fine tuned. I rebooted, expecting to see a fast comp. It was slow as hell, and my friends comp goes fast with the same MOBO as me and a 2.4ghz CPU with 1 gig RAM. I defragmented my drive, and fine tuned the Windows settings, but is still slow. It has been a week so far, and it has not speeded up as much as I l like. I think I have an idea, but I would like suggestions on speeding this thing up.
