Was much happier with results from overclocked CPU and GPU. XP appears inherently slow in some areas. Not long ago I was decompressing files from external USB HDD to internal HDD, some FreeArc packed stuff. The overall impact on computer responsiveness was great. Note that the destination disk wasn't even the one containing the OS. Was browsing the internet (at the slower pace, page loads being delayed by few seconds there and there) and when I wanted to restore minimized KeePass to look something up in my KeePass database, I watched its window sloooooowly repaint. It should have been instant. Then there's Direct3D. Anything D3D that runs in a window will slow down as soon as a single pixel intersects with another screen that is not the one it was bound to. Maybe the D3D problem still exists on Vista/7 with XPDM graphics drivers? Don't know about that case. XP being XP I guess. what hardware it was? How much ram, what cpu, gpu, hdd etc. I had exactly opposite experience on my systems and never had those issues. Sounds you had no proper video drivers/ones provided were bad or just bad luck. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
