better for old machine: windows 8.1 or 10?
i have a 5 year old budget system (non gaming) which is starting to act slow under windows 8.1, probably due to bloat and what not. i am trying to decide if i would be better to freshly install windows 8.1 to get her rocking again, or upgrade to windows 10 while I'm at it.
AMD Phenom II X6 1045T
8 GB RAM
Windows 8.1 Pro with MC
so i guess it's a general question: is a new OS typically more efficient for an older system, or does it have even more demands for hardware that don't work as well on an old system?
