    I test my PC at www.pcpitstop.com, the result says:

    The processor performance of this system, 394 MIPS (millions of integer operations per second), is significantly lower than similar systems with the same type of processor running at the same clock rate, which perform at 534.24 MIPS, on average.

    How can I make it back to the average performance?

    How much, and what type of RAM do you have? What OS?
