Hey guys - my old computer is still plugging along from like 2010 (value), threw in some new RAM and an SSD drive about 2 years ago. 

But she started slowing down again and I think it might soon be time to let her go (I just use it for work etc these days). Anyway what parts are salvageable (if any?) - Could I get away with just getting a new MOBO, GPU, CPU and ram and keeping the SSD, PSU, HD and case? 

Cheers (= 

CPU: i5- 750

GPU: Powercolor 5770

Mobo: GBP55A-UDR

PSU: seasonic PSR550

HD: 500 GB

CASE: PK - 56

RAM: G-skill 1600 trident

The SSD and HD and case should be usable to the new build. Get a new PSU, as 7 year old PSU is probably nearing the end of it's life.

PC don't start slowing down unless there full of dust and overheating in which case you clean it.

If they start fee;ling sluggish its due to software usually viral activity and a heap of bloat in the background maybe a failed windows update creating high CPU usage in which case reinstalling windows is the easiest fix.
