    On the contrary RAM is more expensive than it has ever been, over 60 to buy 8GB on Amazon.
    Well I can remember when 1mb not Gb of RAM was 895 ($1500)

    For a start your HDD is only 5400rpm which is a very slow drive, so that will be slowing things down quite noticeably. Your CPU being only 1.6GHz is also going to hamper performance, is this a laptop you have?

    If you're using intensive photo editing programs then it's no surprise that it's running slowly to be honest, and short of upgrades there's not a lot you can do. If this is how it's running following a clean install of Windows 7 that's what you'll be stuck with until you invest in a new rig unfortunately.
    any advise on places or good sites that can help me build a machine I know all the parts I would need to assemble my dream pc. I just dont know which parts I would need to get the performance I want.

    That depends on the performance you want, as in what are you really wanting to use the PC for?

    I want to make low budget 3d animations I plan on making my own characters and cartoons in zbrush and animate in software like maya, maybe a lot of photoshop and after effects work. and play games like battlefield 4. Other than thats it. Possible video editing one day. I was thinking of getting a macbook laptop because my moms voluntarily going to get me one but I wanna build me a pc system with my own money. I dont know a mac that can do what I want without costing 2000. Im going to sleep now I will respond to any responses in the morning.

    Yeah well whatever you do just remember the tutorial I linked mate and if you want some advice on RAM for a build then I use this Welcome to the G.SKILL TECH FORUM Tradesman is especially good on advice for specific boards.

    That is not to say there are no super advice members here but if you lie G Skill like I do that is the place to go.
