Solidworks is getting very bogged down when I try to mate parts inan assembly drawing. here are a few specs on my computer:

2 Dual Core Xeon processors
8 Gb of Ram
Windows XP X64
Solidworks 2007 X64
Floworks 2007 X64
all in a custom built computer.


When I go to mate parts each time I Try to ok a mate, the computerthe computer takes 20 to 30 seconds to complete the task. I havewatched the Windows Task Manager and each time a process is startedit uses 70% of the processing power (12 gh total) and only 1.5 gbof ram out of the 8 gb of ram the computer has. The Solidworks"support" has been very unhelpful so I am crossing myfingers here. Thank you for any help you can offer!
