I inherited this workstation and it has never really performed well.

It has the i7-5820k 3.30ghz 32gb ram windows 7 64 bit quadro 5000 graphics hyper x predator c drive 250gb 500 gig ssd backup drive

I run solidworks and rhino

This computer is slow as can be and disappointing I know it shoudnt be and Id like to try and optimize it. I am not a computer person Im hoping to get some help before I just buy a boxx. My precision m6800 can school this thing in a lot of ways.

Those are good specs. You shouldn't be seeing any performance issues. I recommend installing a fresh version of Windows. Obviously back up any important data beforehand as a fresh install will erase the C:\ drive.

After installing Windows, make sure to get all the necessary drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's website.
