Hello, my secondary pc is running quite slow after installing new windows 10.
Specs are:
  • mobo: Asrock A770DE+
  • cpu: unlocked AMD Phenom fx-5000 2.2ghz quad-core
  • ram: 8GB DDR2

  • video: Nvidia geforce GT 710
  • some sata ssd
  • psu is gigabyte 450w gold
Could the slowness come from a bad RAM or it's just the CPU (I see the CPU struggling with normal tasks hitting 70-100%) ?
Also, I have a good offer to get Phenom x6 1055t for $25, is it worth the upgrade?
OR, another thing is I can get Phenom 2 x4 955 that runs on 3.2 Ghz rather than the 6-core running on 2.8. Which one will be better?

edit: I decided to go with the x6, please delete this thread..
