Does graphics performance affect boot times?
When I first loaded W7 my system booted (measured from the end of BIOS detections to the appearance of the desktop) in 30 to 35 seconds. I had a problem with my GTX260 graphics adapter that I had installed at that time and have sent it back RMA. I am now running a GeForce 9500GT card temporarily. Now my boot time is 55 seconds. Does the performance of the video card affect the boot time that much?
BTW: Is 55 seconds in the "normal" range?
