Hey people. I recently bought a new tower (1000 big ones) from a local store. The specs are : Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz 120 SATA HD 300W Power 54/32/54 CDRW Drive 512 DDR400 3200 (two 256's running dual channel) Gigabyte 865PE motherboard Geforce 4 TI 4200 64MB (already had this) Soundblaster Audigy 2 (had this too) My old computer's specs : Elitegroup k7s5a Motherboard AMD Athlon 2400+ 300W Power 80GB Maxtor IDE HD 512 DDR 2100 (1 stick) My question is : Should I notice a great performance increase from this new computer? I noticed Doom 3 ran better and I was able to boost the detail to Ultra and the resolution to 1024x768 from Medium detail and 800x600. I ran the Far Cry demo however, and didn't see much of any performance gain. And what really boggles my mind is ACID 3.0 had no change. None. Load times are a bit better but songs I'm working on still skip during playback like they did before. Exactly like they did before. This was one of my main reasons for upgrading and nothing happened, so I'm pretty dissapointed. Is this how this upgrade should be or is something not working?
