Windows is loading super slow on my upgraded build

Hello all,

So my original machine had an intel i5 and matching mobo, but I decided to switch to AMD. I didn't reinstall Win10. I just kind of transferred everything over and powered up successfully. However, after a day of everything running smooth, my OS is taking forever to load up. Before, everything would load immediately (thanks SSD), but now I just get a black screen after logging into my user. It takes up to about 10 minutes for my icons, background and taskbar to show up. I've also noticed a few little things along with this issue. I've noticed that my videos, games, etc feel very very choppy. I reinstalled the drivers for my GPU, but no such luck yet. I haven't tried restoring the system to a time before the upgrades were put together, but I'm heavily considering it at this point.

Should I have bit the bullet and put on a clean copy of Win10, or is this a potential issue with my mobo or CPU?

Hard to tell what exactly caused this problem, the best I could suggest for now is clean install the OS.

What kind of i5 was it? Almost any i5 after lynnfield could beat that 8350? Also would recommend clean install.

You know what, there was an update. But it wasn't a build update, it was just some basic update. After that night, it started messing up.
