My PC is slow with this configuration. What should I do?

My PC Configuration -
Processor: Intel core i5-6500 skylake
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB Ram (x2) 2400 Mhz DDR4
System: 64 bit
GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB GDDR5 (Leadtek)
Motherboard: ASUS H110M-A/M.2
HDD: Toshiba DT01ACA100 1TB
SSD: PNY CS1311 120GB
Power Supply: Corsair VS 450 Watt
UPS: Apollo 1200 VA UPS.

The large softwares I have installed in my PC -
Photoshop CC 2017
Autodesk Revit for Showcase
Autodesk Showcase 2016
AutoCAD 2017
Filmora
Chrome
Wondershare Video Converter
Adobe Creative Cloud
VLC
Onedrive and several other softwares.

I plan on installing other Adobe products and some heavy size video editing softwares as well. But my pc is already slower than before. What is the problem? Will there be any problem if I install more large size softwares?? Please let me know.

  1. Things to check or consider:
    SSD if full? Never fill an SSD higher than 90% of full capacity
    8GB RAM might not be enough for certain type of work and games
    Too much background apps?
    Check for viruses, malwares, etc.
    I5 is not going to cut for heavy editing, CAD, etc. but it will do fine for light to medium work.

  2. a bit low ram for the kind of work you are doing and maybe a I7 6700 would do you better.

  3. Does it not already have 16GB ? he does state: " RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB Ram (x2) 2400 Mhz DDR4"

    I would ask to OP when is the last time you have defragged your hard drive ?
    how much space have you got left on your hard drive (if under 2GB it could very well be the reason)

    and about the defragmentation. I tried but it said it doesn't need defragmenting.
    N.B.: My PC is 11 months old.
