Hello! A few years ago I bought a PC, from the first days I was going perfectly, but after a few years (2 specifically) the performance began to deteriorate.
What is the problem? RAM or my Processor / Graphics Card

 

Processor: Intel Core i5-3330 | 3.00GHz
Installed RAM: 8.00GB (7.90GB Usable)
Available Graphics Memory: 1.7GB
Driver Versión: 10.18.10.5161

Is your hard disk almost full?
Windows goes nuts if less than 15% are free.

By trend newer applications demand more RAM and/or CPU power.

What is the problem? Is it Windows itself! The buildup of crud in the File system and in the Registry will do this. I believe that Windows should be reinstalled, from scratch, about once a year to keep things fresh and clean.
