    Anyone else notice that Ati CCC slows windows startup time compared to nvidia control panel?

    I'm talking about the difference between showing the desktop, and the system being fully responsive.

    This time seems to be quicker on systems with nvidia cards, although it could be one of many other factors...

    Compared to my brothers computer, the desktop appears and he's ready to go within a few seconds, my computer seems to take longer before it responds to me clicking on firefox,

    he has my old computer, q6600, 8800gts, Vista 32

    could that be it? the 32 bit operating system as opposed to the ati drivers/Control Panel?

    Could be a million and one things that could be causing the difference

    Why, what's the difference other than graphics performance?

    the control panel mostly, more familiar with it, and I think that setting up indvidual game profiles is much simpler on nvidia control panel
