I have two SSD's....about 4 years old.
Are more recent SSD's faster ?

The new SSD might be slightly better but I don't think anything major. If you have a SSD that's a Samsung brand, you might be already hitting top speeds. If you are you are any other brand, you might see an improvement.

No doubt about it. Like I mentioned before, I am reluctant to upgrade my hardware as I must then re-install AND re-configure over 50 applications.
Note: I am running Windows 7. My greatest fear is that one day service packs to any of my applications will have a warning:
"Do not apply this update to a Windows 7 computer"

That's going to happen eventually as EOL for Windows 7 was on the 17th of Jan 2020. I don't think you can get another 3 years with the apps.

Have you tried this?

1. Open Performance Information and Tools by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type Performance Information and Tools, and then, in the list of results, click Performance Information and Tools.

2. Click Adjust visual effects. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

3. Click the Visual Effects tab, click Adjust for best performance, and then click OK.

What's the CPU utilization %? What's the memory? Disk?

You can use this to see what its hitting too, lets see.

What are your thoughts on going to an OS like Fedora or Ubuntu? The system requirements are a little less, and wine support has been improving.

Very low....around 5% max when it spikes. This perplexes me as I am running some pretty hairy indicators on Multicharts.

No interest at all.
Have you ever tried to launch applications into a separate core ?
Does that help I wonder ?
