Firstly, if you are booting off of an HDD, you could try using an SSD to boot from like an MX500 from Crucial which offers good value. Secondly, you could try upgrading your RAM a bit, but without knowing the actual specs it's hard to tell. A C2D machine would feel a lot snappier with an SSD.

Attention is what makes life meaningful.

Also, please quote me for a reply. 🙂

It also depends on your future use case for the PC

Maybe some gaming mainly Google and discord because I have a gaming pc with an 3200g and gtx 770

It seems you have a total of 8 gigs from the 4 sticks, right? That should be okay for a machine if you're doing Google and Discord.

oh ok, well since you have an SSD and 8GB of ram maybe you should consider a cpu upgrade, maybe a Q6600

It says manufacturer asustek computer inc and product p5e and serial number ms1c7ab76n00770 version rev 1.xx

I didn't sent a picture because it said my full name so that's why

ok, any core2 quad processor will be a good upgrade, it will effectively double your performance. They don't make these cpus anymore but you will find them on the 2nd hand market

the cpu and gpu should work fine together. Both are pretty weak compared to todays standards. If you can find a adapter to get another 6pin then you can put the gpu in, it will accelerate everything
