What do you have for a Processor now?

Unless you are doing significant CPU demanding programs, that probably is not why your system is slow. A new video card, faster disk or SDD, etc. will give you more performance.
Prebuilt PC's use Mobo's that are made specifically for the retailer and can be very difficult to identify therefore, finding a new processor is very tough.
