    Yah so ever since i borned and got computers they always seems to succkkk major slooww ****. So i decided to custom build one. And sure enough after a few months its starts to slow in the following areas:

    Start up
    When i have 4+ explorer/internet explorer windows open
    super bad fps on games. if im playing doom 3 it takes forever to turn around... or if im playing command and conquer 3 my screen is stuk and fps is down to 0 er 1 when a nuke hits. if u havent played these games u still understand... its so lame playing liek that.

    yea i see no rsn why that pc should be running bad..my friend has the same processor a nvidia 7300 which he is upgrading to the 8800 this week and 3 gig ram..it runs great even with that crappy nvidia.i think u need more ram and a better vid card,

    That Video card totally sucks, I'm surprised it even let you get into the game at all, And get at lest 1gb of ram and get at least a Geforce 7800 or above.(big diffrence between 7600 and 7800)
