Hard Drive Usage Seems to be Worse?


Recommended Posts

Hi... so I put together a new computer, with an AMD Athlon64 3200, 1 gig of PC3200 RAM, and a Maxtor 200 gig SATA and XP 64-bit.

It runs pretty much fantastic, I'm loving the way HL2 plays for example, among other things. The problem is that there seems to be random little stutters in performance doing seemingly normal things. Everything from watching a movie clip to typing this message post, there's a moment every now and then where the system seems to stall while I'm still typing, then catches up a second later. Same with the videos, they just kind of freeze for a split second, then keep moving. I noticed that the HD light seems to flicker during these moments.

But... It doesn't seem to happen when I close bittorrent. But on my older, significantly slower machine, this was never a problem, so I'm wondering if this is a problem with my new PC setup somewhere, or maybe utorrent doesn't like 64 bit Windows?
