    I don't have good hardware. After the upgrade, my Windows 10 experience has not been so good. I can't find the right drivers for my system because my system isn't supported. But, it was running Windows 7 and the Get Windows 10 app said I was good to go to be able install it.

    Microsoft shouldn't have forced this OS on older hardware.

    Just to clarify:

    The GWX app basically will only let you know if your system meets the minimum requirements to run Windows 10 or not. There's no guarantee on how fast Windows 10 will run on your system, but the rule of thumb is that if it barely meets minimum requirements, it's going to be a slow experience.

    "Forced" is an incorrect term here since it was your choice to install Windows 10 or not. If you wish, you can go back to your previously installed Windows 7 if it hasn't been over 30 days since you upgraded to Windows 10 and didn't delete the Windows.old folder.

    It seems to be running okay right now. I guess you could say the performance on my system varies. I have the AMD Catalyst 15.7.1 version installed with the 15.201.1151.0 Graphics driver installed. I have the AMD Radeon 6310. There is a new driver that it is in Beta form for this driver. But, I refuse to install any kind of Beta of anything as it's unfinished.

    slurp812, I am on a tight budget as I am disabled so I can't upgrade the RAM or buy an SSD right now. I was wondering if the new AMD Crimson chipset was for my PC also? I really don't know. It has the AMD Radeon 6310 Graphics Chipset.
    Sry. Windows has lots going on. Not sure what Radeon cards are supported.
