    I have an Intel P4, 800FSB, 2.6GHZ, 512 RAM, 128MB Video Card, and 2 Hard Drives. My computer seems to be really sluggish for its speed, is there any like super tweaks that I can do or will it help if I did some partitioning? Thanks.

    ^ best advice.
    Make sure you combine it with using the latest drivers after the install and a degfrag of your data partitions.
