Just a few weeks ago, I upgraded a 6 yo tower by replacing the standard HDD with a 480GB SSD...finally a capacity I could live with at a reasonable price. I reloaded 7 from DVD, activated, then immediately upgraded to 10. What a huge difference one component will make! My power on to login screen is less than 15 seconds, and ready to use in less than 30. It has totally disrupted my coffee routine!

The SSD is the only new item in the rig. The rest:
AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.00 GHz
4GB DDR3
Win 10 Pro (32 bit)

One thing I found out was that having a 6 yo rig meant that I had 6 years of dust on the cooling fins. I realized this after Minecraft caused the system to shutdown after about 20 minutes or so. After it did this twice, I suspected overheating and download free tool and discovered that my idle temps were 195F and Minecraft was pushing them to over 250F! A thorough dusting and it now idles at around 140F...I haven't had time for games lately so I don't know if this will solve my overheating issues, but it's a pretty safe bet. Smile | :)
