    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)
    Not sure what this means. Are you doubting my word as in nobody can be that old?

    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.

    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.
    Thank you

    For parts, look at Newegg, Amazon, or maybe Tiger Direct. PCpartpicker.com lets you compare prices at various dealers for a particular part.

    Actually most of the stuff you will need will be based around the motherboard you pick and what it supports in the way of the CPU RAM etc etc When you have got that info then go to the specific device manufacturers and get compatibility answers from them.

    I don't know what you prefer in the way of motherboards but just post in the section mentioned and you will be flooded with ideas and info on them. Myself for instance prefer Asus or Gigabyte as I have used both in builds and have friends who also like them. I also know that of brands that folks have had a lot of trouble with and another thing is it is good to get one that has good support because on the whole it is often not that crash hot.

    I remember you from before. I'm sure I showed you the perfect install compiled in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is based on what's worked best in tens of thousands we've helped with here.

    Unless there is some problem with your hardware then you should have a perfect install to the exact extent you stick with the tools, methods and optimizations given in that tutorial.

    You can test your hardware and then go over your install using the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

    I don't know of a site with that specific purpose. Do the best you can and post a list of the parts you are considering on this web site in the "PC custom builds" section before you commit to buying anything.

    The heart of the system is the CPU/motherboard/RAM combination and they must be compatible with each other---an Intel socket 1150 CPU will fit only into a socket 1150 motherboard. The RAM is likely to be DDR3 of a certain size and voltage. Etc.
