    I have a Seagate ST380817AS (80 GB 7200 rpm) and i have measured its performance through Fresh Diagnose it is very low.
    Read Speed-: 32 MBps as against same model normal is 44 MBps
    Write Speed -: 27 MBps as against 31 MBps
    I have tried both mode ie. SATA and RAID mode from Bios but the results presists.
    What r the reasons for this low performance and how could i improve it.
    I have following config.
    AMD 64 2800+
    ASUS K8V-MX
    Seagate SATA


    Also I am thinking of upgrading to WINDOWS XP 64 BIT do u suggest that and will i receive better overall system performance with it.

    Upgrade to x64 only if u have 512 MB RAM. I had used it on 256 MB. It is slightly slugish than 32 bit XP on 256 MB RAM
