Default Re: Win 7 64 bit - performance question

I installed chipset drivers after the install

I also tested my WD hard drive with HD Tune and got similar specs I had in vista, so I know my drive and controller seems to be working ok.

I also did enable AHCI which was not enabled before and that seem to cut my boot up time from 50 seconds to 30 seconds

I have since uninstalled NOD 32, and decided to go with AVAST 5, it appears to be much lighter and reports say it has high detection rates and of course it is free, if this does not work out I might try MSE

so far my machine seems to be much better now and I reinstalled GTA4, and of course I messed up my saves..so have to start over oh well..anyway GTA4 seems to be running excellent so far
