    Well the RAM is the obvious problem. I believe the A10's igpu would outperform the old 8400GS video card. Get dual channel RAM at least 1866mhz.

    You could get a ssd and reinstall windows on it for a huge speed boost.

    Thank you for replying to me.
    I tried just using the a10 but the screen resolution went down and it felt slower.
    Do I need to do something else to optomize the igpu?
  3. The A10's igpu feed off of fast RAM in dual channel. One 2GB RAM stick is going to be terrible. 2GB is not enough to even run Win7 comfortably.

    Oh ok!
    I am going to get 8gb at 1866mhz.
    Thank you so much for explaining this to me.
