Can any computer expert give some suggestion wha I can do with my over 10 years slow pc? I recently replace ram to 8 gb (the max my pc can handle), a 256 gb SSD loaded with windows 10. But the pc is still kinda slow. I am wondering what else I can replace to make it run smoothly and fast. Thank you!

Climb to the highest point you can find. Throw old computer. It will temporarily be very fast.

Short of replacing the CPU (if you can a compatible one on eBay that is), it's more cost effective if you get a new every level computer.

You might want to check out lenovo.com because it looks like the same device is available for $10 cheaper there. If you dont mind paying that extra $10 you get 2 extra years of support (total of 3).

Based on your description your CPU is your likely bottleneck. Not much you can do there - I don't think that upgrading to a faster CPU for your motherboard is likely to be super practical or affordable based on the age of the machine. If it's a desktop you may be able to reuse some of your components in a new PC build. You'd likely need to purchase:
- Motherboard
- Processor (compatible with above Motherboard)
- RAM (PC4/DDR4 is the current spec, but some new laptops are still sold with PC3-L modules)
- New OS license / Serial Number (your Windows license is tied to the motherboard or your Microsoft Account depending on how you set things up) these days.

I've done many budget builds this way - you may be able to reuse your:
- Case
- Power Supply (assuming it has capacity to run the new CPU and components - newer components may be more energy efficient so you might be fine here)
- Optical Drive (CD-ROM/DVD/Blu-Ray)
- SSD (use this to reload your operating system)
- HDD (use any extra HDDs for data storage)

Edit: I wanted to mention - on the Power Supply (PSU) you would also need to check to make sure you have the appropriate connections for your new components. Since you already have a SSD in your computer you most likely have the correct (SATA) power adapters on the PSU, but you'd want to make sure you have the correct 20/24 pin motherboard connector, as well as the additional 4/6/8 pin connector that connects to the Motherboard (typically near the CPU), and additional power for your video card if you have an add-in video card.

It will only be as fast as it's slowest point. It's bottlenecked. You can use the SSD and start a new build or sell the SSD and buy a new computer. 10 years is a decent lifespan for a computer.

Thank you for your info! The old pc is quite a nice one when I bought it. It is HP IQ 500 smart touch all in one pc, now it is hard to find newer components to be compatible to it. I just found a cheap cpu that may work on it. I'm thinking to do this one more trial to upgrade cpu from Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 ghz, 667 MHz to intel core 2, duo 2.50 ghz, 800 MHz. Do you think it will give me some boost?

If you have a MicroCenter nearby, buy their entry-level PowerSpec desktop. If you are on a super-limited budget, you can look for a used Dell Optiplex or Precision, HP workstation, or a Lenovo Thinkstation. A used unit can (even now, with heightened demand) be obtained for under $200 without the monitor. I would look for 8 GB (or more) of RAM (almost always upgradeable in a desktop), 256GB or larger drive, 6th generation or later Intel CPU.

My PC is over 10 years old too. I'm still using the very first core i7 CPU that came out, i7-920. Booting off an SSD too, but I got 32 GB of RAM instead of 8GB. Aside from the latest games, everything else runs smooth and fast. I think RAM is your bottleneck and you're better off buying a new PC at this point.

Is your board a x58 board - does it take 3 ram sticks???

If so you might be able to throw in a xeon 5675 and get 6 cores 12 threads for about 30 bucks.
