AMD Dual core and Windows XP

I have windows xp running on an AMD dual core cpu, and it runs like a slug. I have googled and found some ideas and applied them all, but it still runs super slow. Wondering if anyone out there has some other ideas.

I own one of these boards and have been extremely happy with it. I bought if because I had just bought a new vid card and then my old mobo died on me. I didn't want to buck up for a new vid card so I found that board and bought it. Working great.

I have been using AVG for about 3 years now and it works great. Plus I think, the new free version is Vista compatible. I tried avast as well and didnt like how it updated. That was a while back though and it may have changed.

I stopped watching after Next Generation. Just couldn't get into Deep Space or Voyageur. Liked almost all the movies. Definately 2,3,4 and all the ones with the ng cast. I think there's another one coming out that goes back to kirk and spocks academy days. Should be cool.

Splinter Cell: Double Agent

Anyone know if Ubisoft has "dumbed" this game down enough to work on my Radeon 9800 pro? I can't find any such info. On the box it says the cards that are known to be compatible, unfortunately I can't afford any of them right now.

I used it for a few weeks, but at that time the free version of AVG antivirus wasn't compatible so I was leery of running without antivirus. I did some gaming on it (half life 2) seemed to work fine for me. In the end went back to 32 bit.
