    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this issue.

    I have a Gateway GT5082
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 2Ghz, 2000Mhz system bus
    512 KB L2 cache
    3GB Ram (DDR 3200)
    nVIDIA GeForce 6100 integrated video (128MB shared, I think)
    250 GB hard drive w/ 2MB cache

    have also added a 10GB old Samsung hard drive for page file allocation and external 200 GB Maxtor USB hard drive for backups and storage.

    I just purchased Autodesk Revit Structure and am trying to work with it on my computer. While creating my structural models, the system seems to hang for a couple of minutes and will then perform whatever task I was executing. The Task Manager shows that with Revit running (no project open), the CPU Usage is around 50%+/-. When executing commands in Revit, the Usage is pegged at 100% for both cores. The Peak Commit Charge is around 700MB, and obviously I have way more RAM than the software requires. My question is why is the operation so slow? I am not "techy" enough to understand why the usage is maxed out, but there is ample memory.

    My only thought is that the 2 GHz processor speed is not enough to run the software effectively. The specs for a system running the software call for an "Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, 2.8 GHz, or equivalent AMD® Athlon® processor". Is the 2 GHz processor speed not high enough?

    If so, does anyone know if I can buy a higher version of the X2 chips and seat them in my motherboard? The motherboard is supposed to be a Foxconn C51GU01.

    I am very sorry for the long post, but I want to be as specific as I can be to try to get a quick resolution to my problem. Again, thanks in advance to anyone and everyone who can shed some light on this issue.
