    The motherboard in question mounts an Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 and 3GB of DDR2. Turning to Windows 10, the performance has slightly decreased (the CPU is always busy between 50 and 70% while the ram is busy between 60-80%). Being the 32bit operating system I don't think there are options for a RAM upgrade.

    Do you know if it is appropriate to try a processor upgrade? if so which model could bring an improvement? (some quadcore is compatible)

    A new platform is required. There is just nothing i can recommend to actually speed up your system.

    The difference will be small. 3GB RAM is also very limiting for Windows 10. Overclock that CPU and start saving towards a new PC.

    You could reinstall Win10 64-bit, the 32-bit key is valid for that. You could probably find very cheap DDR2 sticks by now, it's also possible Readyboost would help.

    If you're using the Intel GMA 950 though, it would probably make a difference with a modern GPU. I didn't notice any slowdown using Win10 on my Core 2 E6600 and 8800GT (also with a GT 610 later) compared to Win10, it actually even felt more snappy, and you could probably find very cheap old DX10 or DX11 cards by now. If getting new, even a simple GT 710 would be ok.


    You could try disabling some visual effects for better performance
