The only thing that I think could be off is the RAM. I am using 2 different brands due to an oversight on my part, but with the same size and speed. Should I uninstall two of the sticks?
That is where I would take you, you won't see much degradation in performance (lol, much more
that is) with the decrease in ram amount. I'm almost positive that's where your issue lies.
