My computer seems slower...

I have had my computer (desktop) for a few years now and while it was a pretty decent machine when I bought it I have added some more ram, an upgraded video card and some other bs to it since I got it. It just seems like over the last 6 months or so it has really become slow. Even with a fresh OS load it just drags ass. Are there any components that degrade over time that I should look into replacing that will bring back the speed?

Best something in Texas.... just don't know what it is yet....

Lemme ask a few questions first. What kinda "regular maintenance" do you do? ie: disk cleanup, defrag....

If you would, go here,register and run the test(has to be done in IE). After it's finished, post the link back here.

Think you need to format/reinstall your OS(XP), read this first.
