OK, so I have just put together a new machine, using all new shiney parts except my graphics card, which I thought would be man enough given that I'm not using this a gaming machine at all.
The graphics card is bringing the Windows Experience Index down considerably (results below), but I am surprised at the effect it appears to be having, so think it might be something else?
The problem I am getting is that rendering actions is slow, for example, opening a new tab in Firefox, or even just typing this question into the browser here. The text is appearing a few seconds after I type it. Opening a new browser tab is not as "instant" as I would expect and scrolling web pages is slightly jerky.
Opening files and programs is lightening fast, as I would expect, but it's these basic user actions that are slow and frustrating.
Any tips gratefully received.
The graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS and drivers are all up to date.
