    Other factors come into play also depending on what you are actually doing and when you are seeing slowness.

    Opening or closing files, could be a storage issue. Slowness editing (after an image is open) could be a RAM or cpu issue.

    In other words, what exactly are you doing? What kind of slowness are you seeing?

    The slowest thing is when saving a 22mb jpeg file to a pgn formate. But other processes are slow also

    The intel 2xxx processors are now many generations old. That would be the first thing I would update cpu/motherboard; along with going with 16gig of ram AND one of the new M.2 type drives would really speed things up. Do you want to go intel or amd?

    You can probably go cheaper however I never build cheap systems. The above is only an example of what you need ie 9 series processor and quality motherboard/ram.
    If you go amd ie ryzen, you can save a little money.
