Also, get off that WD HDD as your boot drive. I did a test the other day. I have Black ops on my Sata 6gbps SSD and to load the new maps takes maybe 2-4 seconds. I transfered it to my RAID1 WD Blacks and the load time was easily 3x-4x longer.

So what Im getting at first reusing your window install is most likely causing your major performance issues (did you reuse windows install for the 775 system?!?! and then for the 1156?)
Next your HD is acting as a bottleneck for your system.
If you're not the kind of person who has over 9000 services and processes attempt to simultaneously start up on log in, using a WD Black isn't really that much of a problem.

If he was perfectly fine with the speed of the WDBlack before he upgraded, I'm sure he'll be fine with it after he reinstalls Windows.

If you absolutely need to have your maps load in 2-4 seconds, you need to slow down. Seriously.
