Have a AMD Phenom X4 CPU with 4x Corsair Extreme XMS DDRII 1Gb low latency memory, MSI 790FX Motherboard. SATA LG DVD writer, 3x Seagate 250GB 16Mb Cache SATA harddrives & NVidia Geforce 8800GT Ultra PCI-e Grafix card. Running Windows 7. After installing ANY Windows, from XP upto Win7, the PC performs fairly good. After driver installation still no problem. But as soon as I install all my other software, MS Office 2007, Adobe Reader 9, Nero, PowerDVD, John Deere Office, APEX, Turbo CAD etc etc all geniune programs, the PC then becomes very very very slow, sluggish. I've repeated the formatting process reloading just some then other programs but still no luck. When double clicking a program/shortcut it takes between 5 to 10 seconds for the program to open. When a program opens and you want to begin working with your data the program sometimes hangs or takes long to respond. Anti virus software, tried different ones aswell. Computer is running virus free. But lacks in performance compairing to the specs. Had a AMD Dual Core X64 with 2gb Memory and the perfomance is the same. This was supposed to be an upgrade... Someone told me my harddrives is the problem... Should upgrade to Solid State or 32mb cache drives. But what if I do and theres still no improvement.

Please Help...

Thx

That should be a fast system!

I don't think the hard drives will cause that much slowness, especially if they are in a hardware RAID configuration. The first thing I would look at is updating the motherboard BIOS to the latest version, it could be it is not fully supporting the CPU or RAM.
