Xfx hd 5850 - Delay in Loading Games

  1. Hello

    I have just upgraded my PC and my performance generally seems to be slow.
    I was using a 8600gt (yes, you read it right!) and my games use to load faster.

    Saying that I have no issues once the game is loaded, graphic wise I can very much see the difference, but am failing to understand the slow loading of Games - Mw2, Bioshock etc.

    I know my processor and HD kind of sucks but I had really hoped something better would have come out of the upgrade i just did.

    Anyone know what can be the issue here??

    Please help me!!
