Hey Guys,

Just wanting to know the answer to a couple of questions.

Rig is sig seems to load abit slow when first logging into Windows and when I have multiple tabs open in Chrome it seems to not respond at times and freeze up it eventually gets going but I would have imagined with 8gb ram and my CPU I should rarely have this occur? Is there anything that could be causing this since os install is pretty fresh and I don't have any really heavy apps loading on start apart from avast.

Second question is I am considering for the heck of it making a pc running two CPU's just curious on what peoples opinions are on a good second hand board/cpu combo pref amazon/ebay if possible just curious how these combos would perform against my current setup for gaming.

Regards,

Bandit.

SR-2 or Skulltrail. Depends on how much you want to spend. SR-2 is still expensive.
For gaming?, this is a couple generations old. Your current daily is a better gamer. The SR-2 might be slightly better if any.

Check your memory usage with task manager, I have 52 tabs open in Chrome that uses 6.3 GB. With chrome I have no problem with speed.

Avast is a great AV product but it does significantly add to startup time. It does a quick scan at each boot I think. I would also check your processes in Task Manager to see if any malware is using up a significant amount of system resources. Wouldn't hurt to run Malwarebytes on the system to check for infections that Avast might not be catching.

I scan once per week or so with both avast and mb both updated every few days to ensure all definitions are available however I am picking nothing up. Checking task manager I don't see anything really eating up memory either do you think/suggest if I ramp up to 16gb I will be fine?
