Hello I recently built a desktop pc (8 gig ram, 460 gtx GPU, 3.4 ghz cpu, 600w psu) and decided to get windows 7 64 bit OS.
My problem is that the computer runs slower than it should, especially at start up. When first booted up it loads to my desktop very quickly, but for around 5 minutes it is pretty much frozen. After the initially start up problem, it runs OK, but I feel it should be faster with such a fresh install. Programs I have downloaded so far are ventrilo, steam, itunes, and google chrome.
Games such as bf: bad company 2 and supreme commander run fine on high settings.
I would just like to know if 64 bit is causing these slowdowns, and if there is fix for this, or I should downgrade to a 32 bit version and see if the problem persists.
Please help, if you need any answers to help diagnose my problem, please ask and ill reply quickly.
