Whats up guys,

This is Lex, i just bought a new pc. a friend of mine ordered all seperate parts and made it one hell of a fast funny toy (on paper).

i dont know anything about computers so this is what happend.

i bought windows vista and installed it.
and then i started randomly installing drivers and software that came with the pc.

now...maybe im spoiled but this thing isnt as fast as i would have thought.

is the order of installing all drivers and software on a new system important. if yes, what is the best way to do it and can i still fix my toy?

Some drivers are dependent of the other but the thumb of rule is, after installing one driver, restart machine . Anyway, be careful to install many apps, bse some are garbages trials and will amke disk full of nonesense :)


like i said , i dont know anything about computers so where do i find what you need sillyboy?

but isnt it important that you first do the videocard and stuff like that. do you recommend to start all over again?

I don't think there is any need to necessarily do the video card first, but by doing it first, it means the next installs become easier (because you get a better display). Looking at those specs it looks like it should get the job done.

Perhaps you have exagerrated how fast you thought it should be?
