Where did you get the drivers for the mobo and video card?
Is this ram one or two sticks and what speed is it?
So I just recently decided to have a go at building a PC from the scratch, and I finally got everything set up and running. For some reason though, the computer is unbelievably slow. When I boot her up, it takes almost 30 seconds just to launch Firefox or Chrome, even the Lost low-res videos keep jamming etc. I have all the hardware drivers and Windows updates installed. So any ideas what might be the problem?
My build is:
MB: ASRock 970 Extreme4
PSU: Chieftek 600W A-80
CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 550
GPU: ASUS GeForce 660 2Gb
OS: Windows 7 Home x64
