Help with imporving PC performance (Esp Render Times)?

Hi All,

I have just upgraded most of my computer. After reinstalling the Creative Suite 5.5, i have noticed that it does not appear to be running any quicker than my old computer, and the rendering times are exactly the same (I am also running Red Giant MB Suite within Premiere/After Effects).

PC wise, this is my old set up :-

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor
Asus P5Q PRO P45 Motherboard
2 x Kingston 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz Memory
ASUS GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU – 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
2 x Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB Hard Drive SATAII Hard Drives
MOTU 8in8out 828mk2 Firewire Audio Unit
Corsair CMPSU-850AXUK 850W Power Supply
Pioneer BDR-205 / 12x Internal SATA Blu-Ray BD-RE Drive

This is my new set up: –

Intel Core i7 3930K 3.20GHz Socket 2011 12M Processor
Asus SABERTOOTH X79 Socket 2011 Motherboard
Corsair 32GB DDR3 1600MHz Dominator Memory
ASUS GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU – 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
2 x OCZ 512GB Agility 4 Solid State Drives
2 x Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB Hard Drive SATAII Hard Drives (Raid Mirror Backup)
MOTU 8in8out 828mk2 Firewire Audio Unit
Corsair CMPSU-850AXUK 850W Power Supply
Pioneer BDR-205 / 12x Internal SATA Blu-Ray BD-RE Drive

I am soon going to buy a Quadro 4000 (If avalable for a PC) but i have to wait for this as it means also replacing my monitors as they are VGA (with one connected via the digital port).

Is there any reason why it is not working any faster, and are there any tweaks you can recommend for me to do, especially for the render times?

Thanks in Advance 🙂

TCT.
