That and device drivers like those for video seeing a bad install will tend to see Windows lag at times. If the drivers were the latest they might be too new for that model series if you went with an update rather install from the cd.
As far as seeing a bad install I originally saw a few of those with the 7000 builds where the 32bit 7 at the time saw 4 total(2 Home Premium from connect) and the 64bit twice with 4gb here(2x2gb). If this was an upgrade attempt and not a clean install on a fresh primary try that.
Abit AN8-Sli, 2x512. Only populated 2 dimms (sorry i was sketchy on the spacifics) but yeah only a gig. I also tried an old version of the Nvidia display drivers as well as the beta build (current) drivers which showed no difference in performance.
And yes, it was a clean install. So like others have mentioned, I will try reburning/ installing agian. Thanks!!
