It performs way better than my last computer running XP Pro, but I had it rebuilt with a new mobo running an AMD quad 4 processor and it's almost as fast and this computer.
So, I think now that I've got it all reset to the OC that it came with from the manufacturer who builds custom performance PCs... I think the only thing I might consider further is an SSD as that will make it faster without too much hassle.
I'm just going to wait a bit as they are just now getting these things to where they are reliable long term. Just cause there is a software program that claims the SSD is healthy and has 8 years left on it doesn't make it so.
This technology is really evolving now that SSD's have become very popular. This means alot more money is being thrown at SSD research and development which is going to enhance the quality as SSDs go mainstream.
So, maybe this time next year I'll do a little research on the advancements made from till then with SSD technology and make a decision then.
Meanwhile, I can't complain about what I have now at all... In order to get the performance some of the big time gamers are getting, I'd need to build a whole new system anyway, so I'll just be happy with what I have... even though that's so not politically correct as it involves no whining and complaining cause somebody else has something faster than I do
