Unless you have a very competitive internet based gamer in the house...

this gets to be like internet speed. You can only use so much. How many 10th's of a second faster do you want your powerpoint slides to load? Etc. Just gets silly.

I'd suggest doing the upgrade. Last computer I upgraded from 7 to 10, was free (not sure if they still do that, but it shouldn't cost much).

If you want to improve the experience, get one of the new 4K monitors.
