I have a custom built system. I'm running windows 2k Pro and it seems to boot up slower than other PC's that my dude's have and theirs are slower than mine. The specs are Antec Modded case, Elitegroup Mobo w/ AMD Athalon XP 1600, 256 Mb of Crucial Memory, and a GeForce 2 TI 64 Mb Graphics Card. I also have a 6 Gb and a 10 Gb Hd. They are only 5400 rpm and i think that is what is slowing it down, but i also think it is the OS. I just want some tips and input on what I could do to speed it up without formatting my drive.
